Transform Zimbabwe (TZ) has parted ways with the MDC Alliance over failure to remove ZANU PF from power. TZ leadership has already informed its members not to participate in the upcoming MDC congress set to be held from the 24th to the 26th of May.
The statement by TZ read:
The idea was that if the alliance succeeded in dislodging (Zanu PF), the parties would form a coalition government in terms of the agreed criteria; if it did not succeed, the parties would engage to agree on the way forward,.
It is common cause that the alliance did not succeed to dislodge the military-backed Zanu PF government and by operation of law, the alliance was dissolved, with each party reverting to its position prior to August 5, 2017.
Negotiations were opened for the amalgamation of the alliance partners into one political formation. This would entail the alliance partners dissolving their party structures and joining into one party under the name and style of MDC.
The Transform Zimbabwe national executive committee met to consider the various options and resolved not to participate in the amalgamation process. It was resolved that the party pursues its founding vision and continues to champion the cause of democratisation of Zimbabwe outside the MDC formation.
The Transform Zimbabwe leadership and membership wishes the MDC well in its upcoming congress and beyond. We remain committed to co-operate with other pro-democracy forces until we achieve the dream of a free, democratic, inclusive and transformed Zimbabwe.
