Biti blasts Tsvangirai
MDC Renewal secretary-general Mr Tendai Biti has castigated his former boss and MDC-T leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai, saying he lacks trust and transparency.
Mr Biti said Mr Tsvangirai wanted to privatise and personalise the party.
Briefing journalists at MDC Renewal offices in Harare recently, Mr Biti said Mr Tsvangirai could not be trusted as a national leader after he betrayed the people of Zimbabwe since 1999.
“When we formed and wrote our manifesto in 1999 we agreed that we put terms of office for our leaders and agreed that MDC leaders come and go through leadership renewal, but Mr Tsvangirai is still leading the party today despite our agreement,” he said.
He said there were contradictions within the MDC-T and this forced MDC Renewal members to leave the political outfit.
“The issues also revolve around use of violence and lack of transparency on resources. How can you trust someone who personalises and privatises the party,” he said.
MDC Renewal Team chairman Mr Samuel Sipepa Nkomo said his party will soon hold a congress.
He said congress would come up the party’s name not in anyway associated with MDC.
