Welshman Ncube rules out re-uniting with Tsvangirai

ZIMBABWE – MDC leader Professor Welshman Ncube has ruled out prospects of reuniting with MDC-T, describing the former as a violent and corrupt political party.

He said these “fundamental” differences made it impossible for the two parties to re-unite, scampering hopes of the two joining hands to fight Zanu-PF in next year’s harmonised elections. Prof Ncube said this on Monday in an interview with Zimpapers’ Star FM Radio.

Said Prof Ncube; “You cannot have unification if one of the parties believes completely in non violence and the other believes there are circumstances where you can resort to violence as an instrument of political organisation.”

He said MDC-T leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai exhibited dictatorial tendencies when he overruled the united MDC national council resolution to contest in the 2005 Senatorial polls. Prof Ncube said this led to the split of the party.

“We also do not believe that there are any circumstances where one individual whatever their title in the party can overrule a collective decision of the majority of the structures of the party,” Prof Ncube said.
He added that sponsored violence by some senior leaders in the MDC-T dashed any hopes of opening reunification talks.

“In 2005 and if we look at the reports which are now available . . . they are in the public domain . . . there were sections of the party who sponsored, recruited, trained young people who were abducting leaders of beating them. In fact they stripped them in the presence of girls and boys and beating them up at the head office of the party,” he said.

“Frank Chamunorwa was abducted and in fact dragged to the street in front of my own house, beaten and had his arm broken during those assaults. Many, many others were beaten in similar circumstances by those people who were the youths sponsored by the political leadership of the party and that was a matter of fundamental contestation among the party leaders.”

He also cited the violence that rocked the run up to the MDC-T congress held in Bulawayo last year.
Prof Ncube said his party did not condone resorting to violence for political organisation, which the MDC-T exhibited.

@George Kwangwa I respect its your right to pontificate over my tribulations by M D C Tsvangirai thugs.You know what George ;what infuriates me most and others in similar circumstances is not so much the beatings but the act of being beaten and maimed by your own moreso on instructions from the leadership as they boasted to my face that nothing would happen to them.You then have people like George whom I do not wish to experience what we went through but urge them to pause and reflect before uttering. I have scars from torture by the Smith regime and from ZanuPF yet those beatings from my party then: remain the ugliest experience of my political career ever.
