Matutu confirmed the reports and also hinted on pulling out of the race. He is reported to be unsatisfied with the election process. Matutu said:

The way this election is run is like they have taken a script from Zanu PF. I am closely weighing my options on whether I should continue with the election or not.

If my participation doesn’t enhance democracy, then I will pull out even if I am the most popular candidate.

The MDC has so far completed nominations for the provincial congress in 16 Masvingo districts. The election organisers expect the process to be completed before 15 April in the remaining 10 districts.

It is reported that there are two contesting camps within the MDC. One is believed to be led by Nelson Chamisa whilst the other is led by Douglas Mwonzora. Nelson Chamisa, Douglas Mwonzora and Elias Mudzuri have expressed their interests in the party’s top post. The MDC elective Congress is set for the 24 to the 26th of May.
