Mugabe Party Spokesperson Spills The Beans On Tsvangirai-Mugabe ‘Secret Pact’
NATIONAL Patriotic Front (NPF) spokesperson Jealous Mawarire has sensationally claimed that the late former MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai sent emissaries to former President Robert Mugabe in January this year to seek his support for the 2018 elections.
Tsvangirai was set to become the MDC Alliance’s presidential candidate for the elections before his death and he faced a quandary with a Zanu PF party which enjoyed massive support from Mashonaland.
According to Mawarire, Tsvangirai roped in Mugabe in a bid to sway the Mashonaland vote in the former’s favor.
Mawarire claims Tsvangirai sent his secretary general Douglas Mwonzora to Kenya in a bid to facilitate a meeting with Mugabe through exiled former cabinet ministers Patrick Zhuwao and Saviour Kasukuwere, who has since returned into the country.
“Mwonzora said that he had been sent to arrange for a meeting with the two presidents,” Mawarire said.
The parties, according to Mawarire, met at Four Points by Sheraton Bellingham Hotel in Nairobi in January this year.
Mawarire said Mugabe agreed to throw his weight behind Tsvangirai’s bid for presidency but on three conditions.
“The three conditions included that the MDC-T was supposed to call out the coup; they had to come out in the open and condemn what had happen on the 17th of November.
“Secondly, the party (MDC) had to rein in some of the characters like Eddie Cross because we knew Eddie Cross has worked with the Junta, Chris Mutsvangwa and they did quite a lot of lobbying in South Africa for the Junta in order to cover up the coup.
“Thirdly, MDC was supposed to refrain from attacking president Mugabe.”
However the pact fell through after Tsvangirai’s death in February this year. leaving Chamisa to take over the reins.
