Khupe, Chamisa talks crumble

Khupe, Chamisa talks crumble
Published: 12 June 2018
Talks to reunite the feuding MDC-T factions have virtually collapsed with the Thokozani Khupe led formation saying it will not go to bed with a political outfit that is full of gangsters and is about to enter into an electoral pact with former president Robert Mugabe.

THE two warring MDC-T leaders who are fighting over use of the opposition party's name and symbols following their acrimonious split last month, had reportedly agreed to go back to the negotiating table to resolve their differences amicably with a possibility of reuniting.

This came against the backdrop of a failed High Court bid by the Chamisa camp to bar Khupe from using the party name and symbols.

Khupe's deputy, Obert Gutu, in April said he would only engage with the Chamisa camp if its leaders were honest and meant their words.

"Our position is clear, we are not vindictive. With all the abuses, we have said we are not abusive," he said.

"If our colleagues are truthful and honest, they should mean what they say and say what they mean. Their actions should reflect what they mean.

"Their actions have spoken of malice, vindictiveness, intolerance, even the decision to recall Khupe from Parliament.

"If they are not genuine, how can we work with them, but if they are honest, we can work together.

"Everyday, I receive of 200 messages from South African numbers scolding me."

The fallout between Khupe and Chamisa was triggered by the death of party founder, Morgan Tsvangirai in February this year, leaving a leadership vacuum, with both camps claiming to be the legitimate one.
