I have seen the article and what I can say is that it is sad that a national executive member who is also a Member of Parliament in Bulawayo South would interpret serious concerns of a political nature as a tribal issue or tribal agenda. This is a very reckless statement from a national executive member which has potential to incite tribalism and cause social unrest in the country. There is nothing tribal about wanting a workable coalition agreement that is fair. We need a coalition that will contribute to getting a lot of votes, but as that agreement stands it does not offer president (Morgan) Tsvangirai votes needed to win the elections. It actually deducts votes. I don’t see any Ndebele or Kalanga interests emerging from these concerns. He has to explain where he is getting that from because our concerns have to do with the interests of Zimbabwe and winning elections.
