Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) led by Professor Welshman Ncube says it will not engage in coalition talks with the MDC -T.




In an exclusive interview here the MDC spokesperson, Nhlanhla Dube, declined there had been such talks, adding they would never be anything like that in the near future.

"It is our hope that this final clarification will put to rest the often annoying and pushy attempts through public pontification for a coalition of any shape, form or type by those who want an MDC -T success at our and the people's expense," said Dube.

"This for us is a critical time in our pursuit of electoral success and those who think they can distract our impetus in working diligently towards a successful election outcome should now know that the game is up. Our determination to succeed on the basis of principle, truth and non-prostitution of our cardinal values of democratic change where the masses are free to choose from a multiple of political parties their own leader remains unflinching and undeterred. This for us is the very cornerstone of democracy," explained Dube.

He added that It has become crystal clear that due to feelings of inadequacy in some quarters, certain elements have switched to panic mode and are thus agitating for the so called coalition, which will never happen.

"History knows that we have tried this route before, history also records that we went on a limb in attempting to find common ground with the MDC -T in 2008, history further remembers that we came out of that attempt the worse for wear, hence to us that was a lesson well learnt.

"We stand guided by the resolutions made at our last elective party congress that we will visit every village, homestead, growth point, farm, and town, climb every mountain and cross every river to explain our policies to Zimbabweans and seek their vote and mandate. We have grown from being part of a political party to the political party. We are emboldened by the reality that since the last elections, we have grown bigger and better and meaner," said Dube.
