Ncube dismisses Khupe’s claim that MDC-T does not need to be in a coalition to win seats in Matabeleland

In an interview with The Chronicle, MDC president Professor Welshman Ncube  dismissed MDC-T Vice President Thokozani Khupe’s argument that her party does not need to be part of a coalition to win seats in Matabeleland.

Said Ncube:

If you want to make a case that we are stronger in Matabeleland when we are divided, it’s self-evidently untrue. First just take Matabeleland South, if you go to the 2013 elections. Zanu-PF won all the 13 seats. But if you put together all the opposition votes in Matabeleland South alone we could have won seven seats from Zanu-PF. So how is it possible for someone to construct such an argument that we are stronger apart when the most recent example illustrates that when we are united we would have won seven seats in Matabeleland South alone? It does not make sense to me.
