ZIMBABWE – Tendai Biti, the leader of the newly transformed People’s Democratic Party (PDP), says he has respect and high regard for his former leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
Biti said this while speaking on private radio station ZiFM stereo’s current affairs programme Monday night with Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa.
The PDP president said political parties are voluntary associations bound by common visions and the moment it becomes obvious that a leader is pulling the other direction the normal thing is for others to move on.
Biti indicated that he left the MDC-T not because of personal clashes with Tsvangirai but because of differences on principles and values.
He said the real issue was on the question of change and the refusal by some members of the MDC-T to accept the reality of renewal and transformation.
