MDC Alliance Fumes At China, Britain For Backing Mnangagwa Ahead Of Elections, Hints At Involvement In "Coup"5 years ago
Welshman Ncube, the spokesperson for the opposition coalition, the MDC Alliance has hit out at China and Britan for seemingly backing president Emmerson Mnangagwa ahead of 2018 harmonised elections. Ncube said that the two countries should be insisting on free, fair and credible elections, instead. The MDC leader went on to suggest that the two countries may have actively supported last November’s military intervention which resulted in the fall of former president Robert Mugabe.
