A coalition is essential to stop fragmentation, and to stop Mugabe from rigging: Tsvangirai
MDC-T President Morgan Tsvangirai has said that a coalition is needed to remove President Mugabe from power in next year’s harmonised elections. Tsvangirai was defending his decision to reunite with Welshman Ncube and Tendai Biti. Speaking on Saturday, Tsvangirai said:
Some may ask: A coalition, what for? Those from MDC-T may say we out-number everyone.
Let me tell you, you are not too many as long as you are not able to change the presidency. A coalition helps to stop fragmentation, to stop Mugabe from rigging.
Some may also say I have lost a seat and so on. Your seat is not going to translate into a transformation that we are looking for. How do people benefit because you are now a member of parliament? How do people benefit because you are in council?
Let us move away from this position-oriented culture and focus to the objective of delivering the people of Zimbabwe.
