ZIMBABWE – THE People’s Democratic Party first president Tendai Biti has apologied to the nation for ‘collective idiocy’ during the inclusive government era.

At the time, Biti was Finance minister under MDC-T.

He ditched MDC-T with a host of other legislators and members.

Speaking at the PDP inaugural congress in Harare today, Biti said “We feared failing you. We could not sleep afraid of embarrassing ourselves.

“We have been disappointed by our own collective idiocy. You saw our nakedness in the GNU. For this I would like to apologise,’ he said.

He added: “We have lived in fear and highly intolerant society. It has delegitimized any citizen who has dared Zanu-PF. Our response since 1999 got us nowhere. We became an asymmetrical idiom of the same system we sought to remove.

“The failed aspirations, the dream that was deferred and the dream that was stolen in the democratic movement”.

Biti said his party will continue to engage  MDC and Kusile/ Mavambo.

“Yes we will talk to Welshman Ncube, Simba Makoni and finish the unfinished business of the coalition.”

But he shut doors for engagement with Morgan Tsvangirai.

“Today we begin to create a 3rd force. We will leave you with your leaking Big Tent”.
