The MDC-N has denied news reports stating the party wants to fire Secretary General Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga, as factionalism rears its head in the party.

The MDC-N, like its two partners in the coalition government, has been rocked by allegations of infighting as the political parties prepare for general elections expected this year.

The ZBC reported Wednesday that MDC-N "insiders say the party might be headed for a split with several senior members mulling a vote of no confidence motion in Misihairabwi-Mushonga."

ZBC claims Misihairabwi-Mushonga, who is also the Minister of Regional Integration and International Cooperation, has "stirred controversy" to such an extent that party's president Welshman Ncube is also calling for her dismissal.

But MDC-N spokesman Nhlanhla Dube denied his party wanted to suspend their Secretary General, and that the reports are aimed at spreading misinformation.

He said: "All we can say is that this can only come from the idle minds of those that have tonnes of time on their hands and nothing to do with it. A pure and undiluted infantile attempt at slander."

Dube said in a statement that the MDC-N  has never been more united as a party as it is now and "we believe that our consistency in our ideologies will pay off in the upcoming elections."
