There Is No Factionalism In MDC-T, We Cannot Talk Of Succession: Obert Gutu

The opposition MDC-T is seemingly following the Zanu-PF blueprint on succession as the party has said that there will be no talks of succession because there is no vacancy for party president. The party has also denied that there are no factions in the party. In an interview with the Daily News, party spokesperson Obert Gutu said:

Definitely yes! Tsvangirai is our candidate for the 2018 Presidential elections.

Doctors treat patients and it is God who heals. We are very confident that our president will fully recover and resume his normal duties soon. We cannot start talking about succession now. Why should we? The next congress of the MDC is only due in 2019.

…Why are you even asking me about a successor when Morgan is still around and he is still our leader. There is no vacancy in the office of the MDC president, Finish and klaar!

…I think it’s very unfair for you to equalise us with Zanu PF. Factionalism is deeply embedded in Zanu PF politics but in the MDC, we don’t have factions. We may have different views on certain issues here and there but that, certainly, cannot be defined as factionalism.

In Zanu-PF under former President Robert Mugabe, succession was a taboo subject as the party insisted that Mugabe was going to stand for the 2018 elections despite the fact that he is turning 94 this year.
