The MDC renewal team says it will not participate in any future elections without democratic and electoral reforms that it says are necessary to curb voter fraud by Zanu PF.

Addressing more than 500 supporters in Bulawayo on Sunday, renewal team official Tendai Biti said a free and fair election cannot be achieved under the status quo.

Biti also criticized Tsvangirai for poor leadership saying he has failed dismally over the past years as an opposition leader.

He urged supporters to brace for the party’s elective congress next year where a new leadership will be installed.

Speaking at the same event, party chairman Sam Sipepa Nkomo criticized both Tsvangirai and Zanu PF’s president Robert Mugabe, saying they have no solutions to the Zimbabwean crisis.
