MDC Alliance Gets Cold Feet, Reverses MDC-T Expulsion

By Lloyd Takawira

MDC Alliance has backtracked on its decision to expel the MDC-T from the coalition citing that it was now giving the Mwonzora led party to answer to the allegations.

This comes after MDC-Alliance convener, Mathias Guchuchu wrote Mwonzora a stinging letter expelling his party from the alliance.

In the letter MDC-T was accused of failing to live within the principles of the coalition and withholding the funds from the Political Parties (Finance) Act.

However in a sudden turn of events, Guchuchu said that the coalition was now affording the MDC-T an opportunity to answer to the allegations.

“This serves to notify you that we have decided to lift the expulsion with immediate effect.

“This has been necessitated by the need to engage each other in dialogue and resolve our issues amicably.”
