The MDC-T would like to distance the party from the ill-advised personal comments from Alfred Dzirutwe passed as those of the youth assembly. The party condemns in the strongest terms the personal attacks directed at Honourable Gutu, and appropriate action will be taken to address the issue.
The only official position of the party regarding the resignation of Honourable Gutu is the one as articulated by President Dr Khupe, on the 18 January 2020.
Following Gutu’s resignation last week citing “personal and private reasons”, Dzirutwe said Gutu had been vice president in name only as he had become part of the ZANU PF faction which has no care about people’s suffering.
Dzirutwe welcomed the resignation as “good riddance”.
