I will not join coalition until MDC name is removed from MDC Alliance - Joice Mujuru
Former Vice President Joice Mujuru has said that her party is fully behind the formation of a grand coalition. However, she stressed that she was not going to join the MDC Alliance, until the name of the coalition in changed. She said doing otherwise would mean her party had been “swallowed” by the MDC. Speaking on Thursday, Mujuru said:
As long as the coalition has an MDC name, I am not part of it, but I would be happy if we meet and give it a different name.
We need each other in order to remove (President Robert) Mugabe and Zanu PF. This means that CODE, NPP and the MDC Alliance should come together and form one strong opposition with a different name, which is not MDC Alliance.
If parties go under the MDC name, it means we ave been swallowed. However, the issue is not about positions, but the people first.
