Morgan Tsvangirai: Angling towards coalition

MDC-T party president Morgan Tsvangirai is considering forming a coalition front with MDC president Welshman Ncube in order to topple President Robert Mugabe who has ruled the country for more than three decades.

Addressing civil society organisations leaders in Harare Tsvangirai said there is need to form an alliance that by the national interest.

“Let’s unite to make sure that we achieve what we set in 1999,” Tsvangirai said.

“If it means Tsvangirai and Welshman are the impediments to that alliance or that coalition then Tsvangirai and Welshman Ncube should not be leaders of political parties.”

Welshman Ncube: Has previously ruled out joining with Tsvangirai's faction in electoral pact.

Tsvangirai added: “Strategically it is important to unite people than to divide them and that has been always our approach because we believe it was necessary to discuss this issue. We will always unite on issues and I am sure that Professor Welshman Ncube will equally be motivated by the national interest as I am motivated by the national interest,” Tsvangirai said.

Already five political parties in Zimbabwe which include MDC-T, ZAPU, MDC, MKD and Zanu Ndonga have joined hands to stop Mugabe from holding elections before 31 July.

The constitutional court, the nation’s highest court, recently ruled that Mugabe had erred in his duty by not calling elections linked to the dissolution of the parliament at the end of its current five-year term on 29 June.
