MDC Alliance spokesperson Welshman Ncube has denied plans to join forces with former President Robert Mugabe and the National Patriotic Front (NPF) in attempts to unseat incumbent leader Emmerson Mnangagwa in the July 30 elections.

This comes after a faction of the newly formed NPF which has Mugabe's backing has landed support to the Nelson Chamisa led opposition front.

"We do not know the extent to which Robert Mugabe is or is not behind the NPF. We read in the press that he might be the godfather or the motivator. We have no desire whatsoever to be associated with the terrible rule of Robert Mugabe. Make that clear," Ncube told on the sidelines of an MDC Alliance manifesto launch on Thursday.

Ncube denied any formal talks with both Mugabe and NPF but said they were ready to welcome any additional support towards dismantling Mnangagwa's "junta".

However, NPF imploded Friday with a faction led by ex-Bulawayo provincial governor Eunice Sandi Moyo saying they were in talks with the MDC Alliance.
