President Mnangagwa Divides MDC Alliance

MDC councillors have vowed to continue attending meetings where President Mnangagwa will be the guest of honour despite the party’s official position that it does not recognise him as the legitimate President of Zimbabwe.

MDC MPs have always walked out of Parliament whenever Mnangagwa enters, a position that is not shared by the party’s councillors. An MDC councillor who spoke to NewsDay had this to say:

People must not politicise local authorities or bring political issues on service delivery. If you fight Mnangagwa, service delivery will suffer because his government will simply block us from getting borrowing powers, our budgets will not be approved and the people ultimately will suffer.

President Mnangagwa will be the guest of honour at today’s Urban Councils Association of Zimbabwe’s Local Government Investment Conference to be held in Bulawayo.

Last week President Mnangagwa was received at the Morton Jaffray Waterworks near Norton by Harare mayor, Herbert Gomba, and party secretary for elections Jacob Mafume who is also an MDC councillor.
