The leader of the MDC party and spokesperson for the MDC Alliance Professor Welshman Ncube has accused the Nelson Chamisa led MDC-T of reneging on the alliance agreement. The MDC-T is alleged to have grabbed Local Government and parliamentary seats from the MDC under the pretext that the MDC had weak candidates. Speaking to NewsDay, Ncube said,
How did they judge the weaknesses of candidates? They don’t know and whose CVs? After all, at least two of the candidates whose seats they seized were very strong sitting women MPs of whom they replaced with a man who has previously lost 2 consecutive elections. One woman they removed in Mashonaland East had the full backing of traditional leaders and structures of the MDC-T on the ground and yet she was removed even after the traditional leaders had pleaded that she not be removed.

…The truth of the matter is that the seats were seized for and on behalf of specific individuals for not so legitimate reasons. Dishonesty, deception and treating colleagues and allies with disdain, disrespect and contempt can never be water under the bridge.
