MDC Alliance Speaks On Deal With Former Zanu-PF MPs, Coalition With Mugabe Party

In an interview MDC Alliance spokesperson Welshman Ncube revealed that they have an arrangement with former Zanu-PF legislators.

Ncube said former Zanu-PF legislators such as Shadreck Mashayamombe will run as MDC Alliance candidates in areas which are known to be Zanu-PF strongholds. He said they have only arrangements with individuals linked to the Robert Mugabe endorsed National Patriotic Front (NPF). Ncube added that there is no coalition agreement between MDC Alliance and NPF. Said Ncube:

There are constituencies that we know historically to be Zanu PF strongholds and that we believe NPF candidates could do better. Constituencies like Harare South previously held by Mashayamombe, the one once held by [former Masvingo provincial minister Kudakwashe] Bhasikiti in Mwenezi and another one in Bikita. They are not more than five and we cannot then translate that to a coalition pact with the party. These individuals have negotiated as individuals and will run under the banner of the MDC Alliance.
