'Ncube not involved'

HARARE - The smaller MDC faction led by Welshman Ncube has refused to be dragged into the current squabbles in the mainstream party led by Morgan Tsvangirai.

MDC spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora told our sister paper the Daily News on Sunday at the weekend the national council meeting by the rebels was part of an elaborate covert programme by State security agents, Zanu PF, Mugabe and Welshman Ncube to destabilise and de-brand the MDC.

But Nhlanhla Dube the MDC national spokesperson had no kind words for Mwonzora.

“The MDC wishes to unequivocally place it on record once and for all that we have consciously refrained from commenting on the internal fights within the MDC-T and as such we are astounded by remarks attributed to that party’s spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora were he includes Professor Welshman Ncube among the people he blames for his party’s squabbles,” Dube said.

Dube said it was high time political parties start taking responsibility of their problems.

“Neither Professor Ncube nor the MDC caused the violent beatings meted out on Elton Mangoma, Promise Mkwananzi and the harassment of Tendai Biti, Solomon Madzore and others,” he added.

The MDC spokesperson also said it is shocking that even for this glaring mistake, the MDC still refuses to take responsibility for their actions, choosing instead to blame everybody else but themselves.

“The constant resorting to scapegoats and imagining Welshman Ncube as the proverbial hyena behind every bush is not going to assist Mwonzora’s party find answers to the glaring reasons behind the winds which threaten to tear the big tent apart,” Dube said.

I have to concur with Nhlanhla here. It is Roy Bennett who first said Tsvangirayi must step down way before Mangoma and Biti. All these people including Bennett and Ian Kay are Zanu Pf of Welshman's agents ? Cmon Zimbos something is clearly wrong with Morgan. I now think that maybe this whole democracy thing is not a good idea i.e. a system in which the will of the majority prevails. Welshman though being in the minority saw through Morgan way before everybody else and people labelled him a tribalist etc. Now are the current rebels Ndebeles ? Morgan is clearly the wrong choice and his white backers have long since dumped him. It was inevitable. Meanwhile the masses clamour for him. Povo ma one chaiyo !

That Douglas Mwonzora is a hopeless clown and a liar. He sees Welshman and Mugabe in everything. This scapegoating is typical of immature people who refuse to take responsibility for anything. Welshman and Bob did not beat Mangoma neither did they impregnate Loreto Nyati. Welshman did not steal MDC-T funds to fund his pleasure with ZANU PF girlfriends. Welshman did not write the Mangoma letters. Welshman was at the Trade Fair when Biti and Sipepa Nkomo were holding a press conference to announce the suspension of Tsvangirai.

Is Douglas Mwonzora a real lawyer? If so where did he get his law degree? Probably at Karl Marx University somewhere in Bulgaria. I have never seen a more hopeless lawyer. Even Chinamasa is way ahead of Mwonzora!

Comrade editor, Please wake up while you are correcting my crude statistics' statements: Your MDC=MDC Ncube = MDC(N) membership two thousand. Morgan Tsvangirayi and Mwonzora MDC(T) membership= Four Millions? Chii chinotadzisa wazwarwa we Zimbabwe kusafunga kudari muchiswera muchinyora rubbish about wana Mwonzora?

Sekuru Ndaronga - 28 April 2014

There are some members of MDC-N who participated in the meeting maybe without the blessing of the party but they came. Tsvangirayi from what I hear says yes let succession be talked about at the right fora, at the congress.

Crazy people on this forum (Sikhona, Zvauya). Unless you have proof that some members of Welshman's outfit were not at the forum, then there is no need to throw insults at Mwonzora unless it's personal or its just a reflection of of your low level of thinking. Mwonzora is a qualified lawyer and has successfully represented many people.

mwonzora is just a can't. for him every problem in mdct is caused by zanupf, including the fact that tsvangirai has as a wife a daughter of a senior zanupf member.

Mwonzora and company solve your problems alone bacause they are of your own making. The problem is that you are power hungry.

"DC spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora told our sister paper the Daily News on Sunday at the weekend the national council meeting by the rebels was part of an elaborate covert programme by State security agents, Zanu PF, Mugabe and Welshman Ncube to destabilise and de-brand the MDC." And the editor lets this pass? Daily Lies again?

Ban'a - 29 April 2014

Is Mwonzora saying Welshman beat up Mangoma? I don't support his party, but Ncube is just about the most decent political leader we have in the country, and please Mwonzora, leave him alone. Deal with Biti the rebel, Tsvangirayi and that loudmouth Chamisa.

machakachaka - 29 April 2014

I have been following statements and responses from Mwonzora over the past month and I think he is fast developing into a motor mouth.... Mr Mwonzora, YOU CAN DO BETTER!

ncube leads a burial society

john hunduza - 29 April 2014

There is nothing wrong with what Mwonzora said in his statement. He never said Welshman Ncube is involved in the rebels' project, he said some of his people were in attendance at Biti's meeting.

Dr Know - 29 April 2014

Its true Ncube is involved remember people crossed the floor recently after Tsvangirayi's Big Ambrella call and Joined him. Now they want him out. Ya. Thus true
