Mujuru, Khupe in pact. . . as Chamisa is snubbed

NATIONAL People’s Party (NPP) leader, Joice Mujuru, is in talks with fired MDC-T vice-president, Thokozani Khupe to form an electoral alliance ahead of the general elections and has shut out MDC Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa, highly placed insiders have said.

The two leaders, who were both ousted from their political parties and feel they are victims of gender dynamics in Zanu PF and MDC-T, respectively met in Bulawayo last week and held talks on how they could possibly form an alliance that could challenge both Zanu PF and the MDC-T led by Chamisa.

A source said both leaders were worried that their support base as individual parties was not sufficient to carry a majority vote, while Mujuru was concerned that her People’s Rainbow Coalition had not generated excitement ahead of the polls.

“The leaders met during thye women electoral convergence [summit] in Bulawayo and together with PDP’s Lucia Matibenga agreed in principle that an alliance ahead of the polls would be critical, however, the sticking point is on who will lead the alliance,” a source said.

NPP officials want Mujuru, already endorsed as the PRC presidential candidate, to be leader, while Khupe, believed to have the Matabeleland vote, comes in as a deputy, however, the latter’s supporters want her to lead.

“Ultimately that is the sticking point, the leadership and the presidential candidacy. They both want to lead and it does not look like any one of them is willing to let the other lead,” another source said.

Khupe’s spokesperson, Linda Masarira, was non committal when approached for comment, only saying “the media will be advised in due course”.

Pressed to explain on the leadership standoff between Khupe and Mujuru, Masarira said: “They will find each other soon, don’t worry.”

Mujuru’s spokesperson, Gift Nyandoro said he could not comment on the talks because he had not yet been briefed by his principal, but he was aware that Mujuru was not in any talks with Chamisa.

“NPP under the able leadership of Mujuru wishes to set the record straight pertaining to mischievous falsehoods and lies being peddled and circulated on social media to the effect that its leadership has resolved to join the MDC Alliance. NPP has not made such a resolution and no such meeting has ever occurred as alleged,” he said.

Nyandoro said NPP has not held any talks with MDC-T since the death of its leader Morgan Tsvangirai, but said he was to get a briefing on the Khupe engagement.

“Since the death of Tsvangirai, there has never been resumption of constructive engagement by the parties involved except social media falsehoods,” he said.

  1. losers Alliance, Chamisa is the only real deal in Zimbabwe,ku UK makamuona here @ khupe..unofa ne bp gore rino..iwe ukutadza kuunganidza vanhu 100 pa Bulawayo iye aku England ne ma 1000s..tiri hedu mugore rava chamisa,,

    1. you Chamisa people are a menace to society just like the Mugabeists, anyone who is not for you is labelled & attacked. it is for these reasons that Zim will be better off without a majority ruling party. otherwise we will be stuck in one place

  2. this was obvious as the Blue Roof plans are beginning to take shape now

  3. Alliance of conviction or convenience? By now, anyone wishing to trounce the current regime must watch the whirlwind and do a simple electoral matrix. Unless these ladies are working for someone else behind the scenes, Chamisa’s star has undeniably reached fever pitch. Never underestimate the power of jealousy and the power of envy to destroy, nonetheless. The sooner these ‘like poles’ make the right choices before they repel, the better. It goes without saying that years of practise do not always translate to experience.

  4. This is a zanu project to divide votes

  5. New dispensation means effective administration saka after the shambolic zanu p.f primary elections President Chamisa vapinda.Imagine Epworth has the highest number of registered voters around 79 000 with a zanu pf cell membership of 45 000 but only less than 6000 voters participate coz of disfranchise and chicanery.Kuzvibira.Bullet trains and Spaghetti roads mapinda zanu yakatarisa.Be a stateman Nelson

  6. Now the preempted plan that Kupe used to deny is in the glare of everyone to see. Kupe the betrayer of the people’s cause. However we are wiser than what you think. Here in Matebeland haulume.

    1. its Khuphe not Kupe you fool

      1. Actually it’s Khupe 😁

  7. Enough is enough we are better educated these days we will nail them come election.GO CHAMISA GO

  8. surely Ms.Khupe you should now see which you are going.think J .M WILL LET YOU BE AT THE TOP? MR O.GUTU tell Ms Khupe and yours self to smell the best coffee around.

    1. Chinonetsa chirungu sure.

  9. it is sad and unfortunate that the two ladies are for their personal glory and are not worried about the down trodden zimbabweans. History will judge them harshly for sure.

  10. Comment…khupe you are not serious do you think mujuru can let you lead,iye achidavo kuita president Kkkkkkkkk its better to form your own coalition with very small parties

  11. Zero plus zero equals zero even if hey add zeros from Harare to Bulawayo the answer remains zero. These people are not worried about the people. This is the reason I respect Douglas Mwonzora and Elias Mudzuri they respect majority.

  12. Matebele Warrior- Chamisa is our leader

    i have a bad feeling about the trip by Mustwangwa and chairperson of ZEC to Russia.Russia said to Ed “we will help you in POLITICS.This to me means a lot and a lot will happen . lets all watch and conrtibute to what is happenning on the ground.There is the issue of ballot papers made with Chromatograhpy.This was used in 2013 and it can come in another version.Ballot papers must be tested by all parties brfore elections.
    there are romours that Zanu registered young childern , as MDC Alliance lets fight , whether there is money or what lets have polling agents in all the polling stations.this is a must win election , its like going to war , lets have enough and objective polling agents , i have started to help my ward in that lets educate our rural population , all lets fight this one and forget about these copu boys

  19. We are waiting anxiously to repel the continuation and dooms of zanu pf’s destructive projects,Khupe and Mujuru’s blindness and their useless vision and of those who keep on supporting and prompting zanu pf’s evilness when we want to see zimbabwe rapidly forging ahead in terms of development.Why can’t we zimbabweans envy the good face of South Africa today?

  20. Whatever they are planning, I don’t think they gonna overpower Chamisa becoz Chamisa is already a good sympolic of Zimbabweans. Now keep my words if Mujuru and Khupe make a coalition, it won’t last becoz both of them vane nzara yokutungamirira so they gonna fight pachezvavo. Vose vane power hungry. Let them do what they think but its a wastage of time. I feel sorry to them. We need the samples of the ballot paper to know whether it’s not electronically made or not. If Mnangagwa and his party refuses to do that tinenge tava kuziva chitsotsi chiripo.

  21. Pasi nema’Pitikoti’ !

  31. Yes 100% agree with u mjombo, these Chamisa fools think they iwn Zim. They re even worse than Mugabes. Anyone should be free to choose what they want, we all Zimbos. Their demise after the elections will please me, I now hate these idiots
