Allegations of factionalism and political capture surface at MDC
Allegations have surfaced that MDC-T President Morgan Tsvangirai has been “captured” by one Chief Ndlovu. Ndlovu is being accused of using his financial muscle to curry favour and buy influence with Tsvangirai. This has reportedly led to Ndlovu being given the nickname “MDC-T Gupta” Ndlovu is reported to have footed the medical bills for Tsvangirai’s treatment in South Africa.
Speaking to Newsday party considers newspapers said:
These alleged Guptas have gone on to sponsor parallel structures in Bulawayo and Manicaland, the intention being to consolidate and position themselves favourably with the top party leadership so that they can run for Parliament in 2018.
However, MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu refuted these allegations saying.
These are fictional and bizarre allegations that will make a very good storyline for an action-packed fiction movie. We know that Zanu PF is not sleeping while they try to infiltrate us and cause another split. The good news is that this will not happen. We are going into the 2018 elections as a solid and united political party under the able and charismatic leadership of Tsvangirai.
