We are aware of their murderous plots against some of us. Those assassination plots nurtured & orchestrated at those particular houses & offices. We know them by their names & their totems. Their plans are EVIL.
Their plots will NOT materialize.
They will be caught!
Gutu who is a staunch critic of Nelson Chamisa, however, did not name the people plotting to kill him neither did he mention why they want him dead.
Gutu, a legal practitioner, has not yet revealed when or if he will be back in politics after he resigned from the MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe where he was the Vice President.
Like Douglas Mwonzora, Morgen Komichi and Elias Mudzuri, Gutu is in support of the Supreme Court ruling that reinstated Khupe as the leader of the MDC.
