MDC-T Spokesperson Obert Gutu To Quit Party, Says He Will Not Be Associated With “Violence and Thuggery”

MDC-T national spokesperson Obert Gutu has condemned the violence that took place at the burial of MDC-T founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai in Buhera on Tuesday. MDC-T vice-president Thokozani Khupe, secretary general Douglas Mwonzora and other party officials were verbally harassed and assaulted and had to be protected by the police at one point.

Gutu declared that he is not going to continue to be associated with such a party and hinted at running as an independent, after insisting that he was going to run for the contentious Harare East parliamentary seat. The seat had been allocated to Tendai Biti’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP) under the pact for the coalition MDC Alliance.

Writing on microblogging site Twitter, Gutu said:

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

I’m not going to continue associating myself with an organization that advocates for violence and thuggery.

I’m a principled politician and professional. I’m NOT quitting politics. I’m going to contest in Harare East constituency in the 2018 elections.

Violence and thuggery as a tool for political mobilisation is simply not acceptable in my scheme of things.We are supposed to be a political party and not a ragtag armed militia.

    1. Taura hako mfowethu. He seems to forget that he has already been served our devorce papers the day he was against the alliance directive to observe harare east, isu takange tatobvisa bhareta(gutu et al) mumusoro memusangano.

  3. Discipline among party youth should be observed seriously. The police should not be reluctant and observe people breaking the law. Leaders of parties should quickly condemn and put measures in place to stop such things from happening in the future. Let’s control our emotions. We know we edured a lot of hardship but this is not the right way to solve problems. We should set precedent right now before the situation gets out of hand.

  4. Guru is insensible.we don’t go along with insane pole who are jealousy of someone’s potential .Go on Guru even your wife if you have any won’t vote for you
