Obert Gutu, the deputy president for Thokozani Khupe’s breakaway MDC-T has ruled out reunification with Nelson Chamisa’s MDC-T. Gutu claimed that Chamisa has been sending highly placed envoy trying to reunite the two factions. In an interview, Gutu said,
Yes, they have used some highly-placed emissaries to get in touch with us seeking a ‘reunification’. What we know for certain is that our former colleagues cannot be trusted. In the past, they have exhibited shocking levels of intolerance, hatred, malice and vindictiveness. We have got absolutely no appetite to re-unite with people who are neither honest nor sincere. We are not desperate at all.
…There’s a snowball’s chance in hell of us reuniting with people who cannot be trusted. In fact, it is only when human life is found to exist on planet Jupiter that we will reunite with those people. As long as our erstwhile colleagues are not entirely forthright and honest, we have got no appetite to even consider a reconciliation where there is clear and unequivocal evidence that the prospects of a reconciliation are close to zero.
