Thokozani Khupe’s aide Witness Dube has threatened to quit MDC-T after being attacked on Sunday following factional clashes. Dube sustained a deep cut on his forehead and told NewsDay that he is seriously considering resigning for security reasons.

They have put the party into disrepute by abandoning constitutionalism and democracy in preference of their narrow political interests. I am considering that route, not Khupe.

They have taken a stance that we are enemies, and a death threat.
