War veterans leader and newly appointed Special Advisor to the President, Christopher Mutsvangwa has claimed that President Emmerson Mnangagwa was prepared to name MDC-T members of parliament in an inclusive cabinet. According to Mutsvangwa, the President was not able to name an inclusive cabinet after outrageous demands from MDC-T President Morgan Tsvangirai who allegedly wanted a position in the Presidium. Mutsvangwa alleged Tsvangirai threatened to expel any MDC-T members if Mnangagwa appointed them as ministers.
Addressing a Zanu PF Mashonaland West Provincial Coordinating Committee in Chinhoyi, Mutsvangwa said:
President Mnangagwa wanted to pick some MDC-T members for ministerial posts, but held back after the party’s leader, Mr Morgan Tsvangirai threatened to expel from his party prospective appointees unless the opposition leader was himself given a post in the praesidium.
