MDC-T Challenged to Reveal Its Agenda for the Region.

Mgcini  Moyo

In the past few weeks, there has been a mass movement of supporters from MDC-T to the MDC led by Professor Welshman Ncube.

These defections which are widely reported in Matabeleland but happening all over the country, reflect the defectors' vote of confidence in Prof Ncube. This mass movement is not surprising as it is a culmination of a whole range of incidents that have proved beyond reasonable doubt that the MDC-T as a party has no vision for Zimbabwe in general and no agenda for Matabeleland in particular. It is my interest in this piece to argue more on why I believe the MDC-T is not useful to Matabeleland.
The movement of people from MDC-T was always going to happen because time is an equaliser as it allows for people to analyse people's actions and promises and judge their future commitments on the strength of past delivery. The MDC-T came to the region soliciting for votes being wolves wearing sheep skins and now their true colours have come out clearly that they are wolves whose agenda is to consume the people of the region. Simply put, the MDC-T has no agenda for Matabeleland; if they do I challenge them to a public debate on that subject. I have no doubt that they will fall flat without any explanations of what their agenda is for the region.
