The opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) formation led by former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai says it is not working with under fire Vice President Joice Mujuru in an alleged plot to overthrow President Robert Mugabe but is prepared to work with her and others if they want to join their fight to dislodge Zanu PF and Mr. Mugabe from office.

Mr. Mugabe has accused the vice president of working with the MDC-T to topple him and has recommended that the party should dismiss her.

A report by the ruling Zanu-PF party’s Central Committee at the congress has also singled out the MDC-T as a security threat.

The report reads "the greatest threat faced by the party in the past five years was the existence of rabid opposition political parties which were backed by the USA and European Union."

The report says to neutralize the MDC, the ruling party should “not rest as 2018 is fast beckoning.

The focus should be always on people-oriented programmes and the provision of agricultural inputs to farmers especially the less privileged”.

MDC-T spokesman Obert Gutu said they will remove Mr. Mugabe through democratic means.
