'MDC Divided Over Best Approach To Confront ZANU PF'

The opposition MDC is said to be divided on the best approach to confront the ruling Zanu PF party as the country’s economy continues to slide into the abyss.

The likes of Tendai Biti and Job Sikhala, party vice president and vice chairman respectively, are believed to be agitating for direct confrontation with ZANU PF while Chamisa favours a non-violent confrontational approach.

An unnamed senior MDC official who spoke to Zim Morning Post is quoted as saying that the soft-stance approach will not yield results and the party has been waiting for a signal from Chamisa.

A political analyst, Michael Dama told the publication that “the Biti faction” has proved to be very radical. He said:

If you take a close look in the MDC the Biti faction is very radical and he has people like Sikhala who was arrested last year and during his trial, the Masvingo court chambers were always filled to capacity and on the acquittal day, there was a massive demonstration.
