Tsvangirai says democracy is not mobocracy

Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai today said his party was not against individual opinions but there should be direction. Addressing a rally at Stanley Square in Bulawayo, Tsvangirai said the party was not going to be derailed by the current conflict within the party which has seen it suspending deputy treasurer general Elton Mangoma but would be guided by its vision and mission which is to liberate the people. “We are not against individual opinions in the party but all we are saying is there should be a direction. You cannot just wake up in the morning and say whatever you want just like that. Democracy is not mobocracy. We will condemn indiscipline so that the party can move ahead,” he said. Tsvangirai has been buoyed by the return of party founding members and those who had switched to the Welshman Ncube faction like Job Sikhala, Joubert Mudzumwe, Edward Mukosi, Siyabonga Malandu and Tedius Chimombe. “Let’s come back to the basics, let’s go back to the basis of the spirit of 1999 which is the spirit of unity and purpose. That is the spirit that is going to drive us to the last mile. We need that so that we energise the people,” he said.
