Biti to meet Matabeleland members who boycotted MDC Alliance launch rally

People’s Democratic Party (PDP), leader Tendai Biti is set to meet officials from Matabeleland, among them secretary-general, Gorden Moyo and deputy spokesperson, George Mkhwanazi who boycotted the MDC Alliance launch rally.

PDP was given 14 seats in the alliance in addition to the deputy mayorship of Harare and Bulawayo, but cannot field parliamentary candidates in Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South and Mashonaland East provinces
