The Movement for Democratic Change wing of Zimbabwean Industry Minister Welshman Ncube and the National Constitutional Assembly have slammed the MDC formation of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai for violence during recent pre-party congress elections.
Ncube told supporters Sunday in Kezi, Matabeleland North province, that the violence in the dominant MDC wing was a sign the formation was becoming like the former ruling ZANU-PF party of President Robert Mugabe.
Ncube MDC spokesman Nhlanhla Dube told reporter Jonga Kandemiiri that the Tsvangirai formation should not be allowed to govern as it has bloodied its hands.
National Constitutional Assembly spokesman Madock Chivasa said the internecine MDC violence ran against the principles of democracy the party so often preaches.
But Tsvangirai MDC spokesman Nelson Chamisa denied his party was prone to violence, instead blaming ZANU-PF for allegedly instigating “pockets of violence.”
