Deputy president of the Thokozani Khupe-led MDC-T, Obert Gutu says the essence of democracy is to let the party that won the elections govern the country. Gutu says that ZANU PF won the 2018 elections and should, therefore, be allowed to rule. He dismissed calls for a Government of National Unity (GNU). Writing on micro-blogging site Twitter, Gutu said
