THE MDC Renewal Team yesterday said South Africa-based Zimbabwean businessman Mutumwa Mawere was not involved in the merger between the party and United Movement for Democracy (UMD).

MDC-T Renewal spokesman Jacob Mafume said the Biti led outfit merged with UMD after negotiations with its leader, Ashiri Mawere, and not Mutumwa Mawere.

"From where we stand, Mutumwa Mawere is a victim of poor economic policies.

"He is a businessman who has done so much for himself and employed many. But the likes of Patrick Chinamasa [former Justice minister] decided to disregard the law and caused the fall of Shabanie and Mashaba Mines," he said.

Mutumwa Mawere has persistently denied links to the UMD.
