Sikhala rejoins Tsvangirai

HARARE - MDC 99 leader Job Sikhala has officially rejoined the MDC, as the party president Morgan Tsvangirai continues to reach out to other opposition leaders to join him.

Sikhala returned to the party he formed along with Tsvangirai in 1999 along with another founding member Joubert Mudzumwe, after nine years in the wilderness where he formed his own MDC 99 party.

“Many people have been waiting for this day, when there are given a present that they have been yearning for,” said a beaming Sikhala at the party Harvest House headquarters.

Lavishing praises on Tsvangirai, Sikhala said he has rejoined the party in order to reinvigorate the party and ensure that it wins elections in 2018.

“We are taking the MDC back to the spirit of 1999 and we will be unstoppable. The hour is now the dictator must start panicking. 2018 is far and many things are going to change.

Hero basa vadictator tovuyako,” said a charged Sikhala.
Tsvangirai said he has been in talks with the likes of Simba Makoni and is prepared to work with National Constitutional Assembly leader Lovemore Madhuku.

Tsvangison kusafunda kuchakushupa iwe. Zanu PF yazokugadza pasi manje. What do you benefit by embrassing failed people paid by Zanu to come and finish off your mdc. Wapera, this is a big mistake uchaona. Recruitment drive yako ichakupedza. Biti iswa waenda zvako. Ko Madhuku?

When ZANUPF readmitted the esteemed professor it was a good tactical move. Sikhala is a founding member and has a greater following in his area. Of course it may create some problems but I think he has the right to contest in the primary elections in 2018 and if he wins then that would be a clear testimony that he is popular with people. My advice is that he has to prove his worth first.

The democratic must Unite! That is the call from the people. Welcome Sikhala. You were right Job you have to disappoint some while pleasing others. This is maturity on your part. Lets now focus on the real enemy of the people, zanu pf.

Mandy Chirokwati - 13 March 2014

Welcome back Mr Sikhala. We now look forward to welcoming Dr Makoni, Prof. Ncube, Misihairambwi and all those full of energy people into the fold. What we need is a strong Opposition like the one we had in 1999 and less quarreling over trivial issues please.

Bolting the stable when the horse is gone..If this had been done before elections it would have been a masterstroke but doing it now is just PLAIN dumb..Go to congress and stop mickey mousing about.

There is no perfect democracy in any country. To stay in power one has to be one. Morgan is a good dictator, whether you like him or not, the majority is him. He just needs to have a good advisor who is level headed.

Richard - 13 March 2014

The circus goes on. Another clown joins the show. When shall we ever get serious opposition politicians in this country? What value do the likes of Sikhala bring to anything really kanye kanye?

This is a great move, but we should be expecting them to have the nation's interest at heart and refrain from playing those juvenile games on us. Otherwise, when you've a moment please visit this new social platform for all Zimbabweans exclusively:

Wellcome back, Job, a jon welldone. Viva Wiwa! Please do not listen to anyone castigating this move. They are wetting in their pants at the prospect of a united MDC Your move shows you have grown not only in age but in maturity! Tsvangirayi is never a saint nor perfect, neither is you, me, Biti or Mangoma. Your coming back does not mean you agree in every respect with Tsvangson, but you have a common goal like all of us to unseat the ageing dictator and lay a foundation and environment conducive for other able minded out there!

This is a welcome move and we encourage all sons and grandsons of the original MDC to swallow their pride and bury their differences for the general good of democracy and the ultimate displacement of tyranny in Zimbabwe

Grievance Mafunga - 14 March 2014

@Nyakudirwa are pathetic... If Job is back, I am back...No single Datya should be left in Santaz, we have taken St Mary's back, Chitungwiza back...Lets go Bikita West, Hwiwa...Masvingo we are coming for you...we have done it before...ATTAAAAACK!!!

There are no permanent enemies or friends in politics, it depends on the balance of interests that hour. Tsvangison is now seeking support from outside MDC T, inside, pple dont want him anymore.

I thought Dr Makoni was already an MDC surrogate. Didn't he participate elections under MDC banner Doctor Know ? FYI Job brings nothing to the dying horse in the name of MDC. He is an opportunist, power hungry dude. He joined Madhuku and somehow he didn't get what he wanted and now he is routing for Biti's ouster so that he becomes SG. The dude is a loser period

The MDC Party is a party for the people but one thing that I want worn MDC President Tsvangirayi is never never take on board seriously people Like Makoni coz he is the brain child of ZANU PF. Don't bed with a snake a snake will always know when to bite so right now discard Makoni he is there to destroy you come 2018 be warned look at what you did since 2009 eating from the same plate with ZANU PF and they ditched you to the doldrums in 2013 elections. Once beaten twice shy. Anyone from ZANU. PF will just come to destroy the party of the people MDC is a big party it can do without ZANU. PF x members who are affilliated to ZANU by night and pose as MDC during the day.
