Tsvangirai says work with me or leave


Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai today urged his lieutenants to work with him or leave the party. He told a rally in Chitungwiza today: “Kane pane asingade kuita fall in line, be out of line….I have not run out of manpower, but ndiri kuti kana muchida struggle yekuti uyai tiite change, ngatibvisei ZANU-PF, let’s work together. But if you do not want to work with me, you are free to leave.” Tsvangirai was speaking a day after the suspension of deputy treasurer-general Elton Mangoma. Mangoma was suspended for ignoring the directive from the national executive not to discuss party business through the press and fanning factionalism within the party. MDC secretary-general Tendai Biti said the suspension was unconstitutional but party spokesman Douglas Mwonzora, also a lawyer, said it was above board. The MDC leader went:”Isu ana Tsvangirai tinoenda ku congress. Kana pane aneshave rekudyiwa, anouya. There are some who wish this party away. Every day, they are saying what they want, even journalists, they are writing what they want . . . but we are saying, they cannot destroy our collective spirit.”
