Former MDC Alliance official, Trace Mutinhiri has said she rejoined ZANU PF after noticing the main opposition was “a white man’s party”.
Mutinhiri who is also the former Labour and Social Welfare minister recently rejoined Zanu PF and claims she made the decision because of ZANU PF’s ideology that seeks to champion the interests of the African man.
Speaking to reporters, Mutinhiri said:
When I was an MDC official, I discovered that it is a white man’s party which will destroy the gains of the liberation struggle, if given a chance.
Therefore, we must all unite ourselves in Zanu PF to defend our independence and our sovereignty.
We want everyone to come back to Zanu PF. There is nothing in MDC. It’s a white man’s agenda where blacks are just used to serve the interests of white people without benefiting anything.
What motivated me to come back is that Zanu PF is a party with ideology. I would want to be part of President Mnangagwa’s New Dispensation which has brought economic reforms. The Second Republic is saying Zimbabwe is open for business and indeed it is open for business. It is for that reason that I want to join my comrades and continue defending the revolution.
The New Dispensation is a success, which is why you see a lot of people coming back to Zanu PF. No one wants to be associated with failure. I have come back home with valuable strategies that will help my party.
She suggested that more MDC officials were inquiring if they could also “rejoin the revolutionary party.” She added:
