BITI FIRED BY OWN PARTY | PDP president Tendai Biti and his VP Kucaca Phulu have been fired from the party by Gordon Moyo. Lucia Matibenga is now leading the faction of PDP.
PDP secretary-general, Gorden Moyo and NPP vice-president, Samuel Sipepa Nkomo announced last week that they had formed a separate alliance which also includes Zapu to prepare for next year’s general elections. But, Biti described the move as “tribal” and committed his party to the MDC Alliance led by MDC-T president, Morgan Tsvangirai.
“The People’s Democratic Party is part of the MDC Alliance; the party has no intention of forming another parallel coalition,” he said, accusing Moyo of trying to pull the PDP out of the MDC Alliance over his alleged personal vendetta against Tsvangirai,” he said.
