MDC Secretary General, Tendai Biti said President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF party actions of corruption, spread of hate speech and selfish interests will lead to the unity government which is one year old this February breaking down.
“It is clear that Zanu PF is creating the conditions for the total breakdown of the inclusive government.It is clear that Zanu PF are making a case for the establishment of irreconciliable differences amongst the parties leading to the total breakdown of this relationship,”Biti said.
“Zanu PF continues to use the public media, the constitutional process, the commercial farms , the diamond mines and the civil society as the battlefields for for perpetuating their selfish grip on power,” Biti said.
“Their determination to enrich themselves at the expense of national development risks keeping all our citizens mired in poverty.”
The MDC said the continous farm invasions , disobidience of court orders, attacks on Tsvangirai, their leader and Zanu PF’s failure to resolve outstanding issues in the Global Political Agreement will lead to the breakdown of the inclusive government.
“The inevitable consequence of their homicidal actions would be the holding of free and fair elections under the protection and supervision of SADC to ensure that the dreams of the people are never again dashed nor denied.”
“The MDC is ready for this election.”
The MDC’s statement comes after Zanu PF’s politburo last month said they will not make any concessions to the GPA negotiations to resolve outstanding issues of the unity government.
Meanwhile, MDC’s leader Tsvangirai addressing the World Economic Forum in Davos,Switzerland urged investors to invest in Zimbabwe saying the current political process is irrervesible.
