MDC deputy national chairperson, Job Sikhala has hit out at President Emmerson Mnangagwa, his spokesperson George Charamba, and State daily publication, The Herald for lying that there are divisions within the party.
Sikhala was speaking in Glen View South constituency at a party rally ahead of Saturday’s by-election.

The MDC will be represented by Vincent Tsvangirai, brother to former Glen View South MP Vimbai Tsvangirai Java who passed away after being involved in a car crash.
Sikhala claimed that ZANU PF is envious of the MDC’s unity. He said:
These men (Zanu PF) after noticing how strong the MDC is after the Gweru Congress, started peddling lies that Job Sikhala and Tendai Biti fought.
If they succeed to divide me, my Vice President and young brother Chamisa we will give the country to them, we will leave politics.
Emmerson Mnangagwa, George Charamba, The Herald and all those purveyors of lies are wasting their time, they will be ashamed.
Biti and Sikhala left the MDC in the past citing differences with the party’s founding president Morgan Tsvangirai.
They, however, returned to the party ahead of the 2018 general election and were both elected members of parliament.
