Zimbabwe's MDC Says Dumped ZANU-PF Minister Free To Join Tsvangirai Party


MDC Organizing Secretary Nelson Chamisa said Mutinhiri is very lucky to have been thrown out of what he called a "sinking ship" of a party, saying there is plenty of room in the MDC for the former ZANU-PF politician

The Movement for Democratic Change formation of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said on Friday that it would be pleased to welcome Deputy Labor Minister Tracy Mutinhiri as a member following her expulsion by President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF party.

The ZANU-PF politburo this week drummed Mutinhiri out of the party for allegedly violating the party's constitution and being too friendly with the Tsvangirai MDC formation.

The politburo urged President Mugabe to remove her from her ministerial post. The decision is also likely to cost Mutinirhi her seat in the House as well.

Reached by Studio 7, Mutinhiri declined to comment though she said she had issued no statement regarding party affiliations.

MDC Organizing Secretary Nelson Chamisa said Mutinhiri is lucky to have been thrown out of what he described as a "sinking ship" of a party, a jab at the former ruling party.

He said there are plenty of seats and space in the MDC for the former ZANU-PF politician.

“So if she ever knocks on our door we will actually open before she finishes knocking,” Chamisa said.
