The MDC-T led by former deputy Prime Minister Thokozani Khupe says it is probing why its national spokesperson Linda Masarira was pictured wearing Zanu PF regalia.
Pictures of Masarira clad in ZANU PF regalia began to filter on social media in the past few days.
The incident seemingly gave credence to people who claim that MDC-T is a ZANU PF project meant to scupper the larger MDC formation led by Nelson Chamisa.
Khupe, through her spokesperson Khaliphani Phugeni, said:
The MDC-T has noted the pictures of its spokesperson which have gone viral on different platforms.
The party has not yet met with Ms. …Masarira, and we will only be able to give a full statement once we have had the opportunity to engage with her on the disturbing and confusing pictures.
We implore the media and the public, in general, to afford us the opportunity to engage with Ms. …Masarira, on this matter.
The party’s national chairperson Abednico Bhebhe said:
We are very disturbed indeed and we shall deal with that in the best interest of the party and our supporters, in fact, not only our supporters but for the generality of Zimbabwean opposition voters.
We have no link with Zanu PF and we will never in a lifetime be linked to an evil political party.
