THE re-entry of former president Robert Mugabe into active politics will not have any effect on MDC Alliance's election victory chances, the opposition coalition has said.

Alliance spokesperson and MDC leader Professor Welshman Ncube said the MDC Alliance is not having sleepless nights on Mugabe and his grouping.

"Those who were in Zanu PF as G40 and they feel they cannot join existing political parties and want to create their own parties, let them be," said Professor Ncube.

"We think it is wrong for President Mnangagwa to begin to speak as if Robert Mugabe and his G40 have no right to organise themselves, and as if action will be taken against them.

"It is fundamentally wrong. Let the people judge them and the people of this country know what damage, what harm and suffering Mugabe brought to this country.

"I believe they will meet the full wrath of the people at an election, but no one should stop them from organising themselves."

The MDC leader added, "So while, we think it is quite surprising that after they did so much harm to the country they still think they can go back to the people and ask for their votes, it is their right to do so.

"We are totally unconcerned about them. None of the Zimbabweans who would vote for us would be inclined to vote back Mugabe or the National Patriotic Front or whoever is fronting it, be it Mutinhiri, (Saviour) Kasukuwere, Jonathan Moyo or Robert Mugabe; it's the same thing."
