Vice President of the Thokozani Khupe-led MDC party, Obert Gutu denied allegations levelled against him that he is aligned to ZANU PF. Gutu has been on record lashing out at the MDC Alliance after he left the party in 2017.
Gutu endorsed President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s victory in the July 30 poll, a position that is loathsome to the MDC Alliance. Writing on Twitter, Gutu said
There’s unprecedented political polarisation in Zimbabwe. We are pre-occupied with the politics of personalities rather than ideas,policies and real socio-economic issues.Because I have chosen to be fearlessly independent-minded, some people label me Zanu PF. Tragic,isnt?I have NEVER been a Zanu PF supporter all my life.I’m resolutely pro-Zimbabwe and against retrogressive politics.I will continue to fearlessly and resolutely defend and uphold what’s good for Zimbabwe, not necessarily what’s good for certain political personalities. That’s me!
