NewsDay reports that 14 opposition parties met in South Africa where they signed commitment agreements ahead of grand coalition talks.
Sources told NewsDay yesterday that Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC-T, Joice Mujuru’s NPP, the Welshman Ncube-led MDC and Jacob Ngarivhume’s Transform Zimbabwe did not sign the agreement although Ncube’s MDC sent representatives. The negotiations were initiated by the In Transformative Initiative (ITI). Elton Mangoma and Marcellina Chikasha, the leader of the little-known African Democratic Party confirmed that they will be working together under the Mass Opposition Movement (MOM). Sources in South Africa also confirmed the deal to NewsDay, but did not give the finer details of the agreement.
PDP leader Tendai Biti, who was reportedly in talks with Tsvangirai, also signed the deal with the other 13 parties. Responding to NewsDay, MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu said they would make their announcement on the MOM agreement once they were done with the negotiations.
