Former MDC-T organising secretary Abednico Bhebhe has refuted claims the he has rejoined the Nelson Chamisa led MDC Alliance.
Recent media reports suggested that the outspoken politician had re-joined the Alliance after a tense period with the rival MDC-T faction.
However, in a statement, Bhebhe maintained his position that only a united MDC can dislodge Zanu PF from power.
“It is common sense that only a united opposition can electorally dislodge the ruinous ZANU PF regime and usher an accountable government in its place. This is what the suffering majority want, and I am merely articulating the aspirations of the generality of Zimbabweans as a politician. My stand on unity of the MDC as well as of all oppositional forces is known by all the various leaders of our once glorious movement,” said Bhebhe
He said he was a victim of those against constitutionalism and that reports of rejoining the MDC A were not only ‘silly and mischievous’ but deceitful.
“Those opposed to the principle of constitutionalism and unity of the MDC have chosen to target me as a person and not the principle that I espouse. They prefer not to play the ball but harm a player. All done to give politics a dirty name when it is simple greed, manipulation and lack of character.
“Against this backdrop, it is silly and mischievous if not devious too, to suggest that Abednico Bhebhe has joined the MDC Alliance. I remain where I have always been and consistently so since 2017 when the discord began, I stand for unity of the MDC which is the only avenue to consign ZANU PF to the dustbin of history come 2023.
“Out of ignorance or malice, perhaps a combination of both, some have created an impression that I have 3 hop knobbed from one party to another. As far as I am concerned, I have stood by my beliefs which have not changed, and they are not about to change. I have worked with progress people across the factional divide, and I do not regret it and will continue to do so as long as that would yield a stronger opposition against the heinous ZANU PF.” he said.
Bhebhe said it is in ZANU PF taste to celebrate the so-called rejoining of the party.
