NewsDay reports that National People’s Party (NPP) leader Joice Mujuru is under pressure from senior members in her party to quit the coalition with MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
A source who spoke to NewsDay revealed:
Serious contradictions have emerged in Mujuru’s party since she signed the MoU with Tsvangirai at his Highlands home. Senior members in Mujuru’s party were not happy with the move and are pressuring her do dump the coalition. They view the move as a palace coup by Tsvangirai. The situation has been made worse by utterances by Tsvangirai’s officials that the MDC-T leader will be the face of the coalition when parties are still to sit to decide who should lead the coalition.
However, Mujuru’s spokesperson Gift Nyandoro said he was not aware of the differences in the party.
