10 things we learnt from MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu’s interview with Advocate Fadzayi Mahere

Today Advocate Fadzayi Mahere spoke to MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu in an hour long interview. In case you cannot watch the entire video here is a summary of 10 points we learnt from the conversation:

  1. Gutu said that the MDC-T got into the Government of National Unity to “save the nation”. He said it would have been impossible for them not to get into the inclusive government because people were suffering. He said because they got into the Unity Government they are ready to lead even now. He maintained that in 2013 they did not lose because they were concentrating on running Zimbabwe as part of the Government of National Unity while Zanu PF was planning on how to steal the election.
  2. He explained that they were boycotting elections because there are electoral issues they want addressed. Gutu said that the 11 page document that has their demands gave birth to the National Election Reform Agenda (NERA). He said that the boycott has yielded results as it gave birth to the Biometric Voters Roll.
  3. The MDC-T is ready to work with all parties in the Grand Coalition. Gutu said that they are open to someone else leading the coalition. The MDC-T is ready to have people decide who will lead the coalition.
  4. He said the appointment of Nelson Chamisa and Elias Mudzuri was done within the confines of the party’s Constitution. Gutu said that the appointments were not done to dilute Thokozani Khupe’s power as stated by other critics.
  5. The door to door campaign is meant to deal with the fear people have especially to attend a political rally for fear of being victimised by Zanu PF supporters.
  6. Gutu said that in 2018 Zanu PF will not win unless they steal the election through rigging like they have done in every election.
  7. The MDC-T is not ready to enter into a power sharing agreement with Zanu PF again.
  8. Gutu claims Zanu PF plagiarised the MDC-T’s economic blueprint to come up with ZimAsset.
  9. He said that the MDC-T will not redistribute land as widely believed. He however said that they will restore everyone for things they lost.
  10. The MDC-T is ready to fire corrupt Councillors. They said that they will start demonstrating soon.
