Tendai Biti Says He Is Not Aware Of New Appointment In The MDC-T
Leader of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, Tendai Biti, has told media that he is not aware of his latest appointment as the Deputy National Chairperson of the MDC-T led by Nelson Chamisa.
The MDC-T presidential spokesperson, Nkululeko Sibanda revealed on Tuesday that the party had appointed Biti as its deputy to new chairperson Thabitha Khumalo.
Biti is the leader of the PDP a partner with the MDC-T in the MDC Alliance coalition which is in the process of being formulated to be a new united political party instead of an election alliance.
The new party leadership configurations, announced at a press briefing by Sibanda, saw another Alliance partner Professor Welshman Ncube of the MDC being appointed as co Vice-President with Morgen Komichi and Elias Mudzuri.
Asked for his opinions about the deployments, Biti professed ignorance about the new appointments.
“Appointments by who? I am not aware of those. So, please talk to people who know,” Biti said.
Asked if he would be satisfied with his new position if eventually informed, Biti was adamant he was not the best to respond to the question.
“Why are you now talking to me? I am just telling you that I don’t know yet.”
Sibanda however suggested that Biti was aware of the new developments but was yet to be handed his formal appointment letter.
“We made the announcements today and he is yet to receive his call from the office. I will check for you whether he got his appointment letter,” Sibanda said.
Further asked if the position of deputy national chair was befitting of the former party secretary general and MDC Alliance co-principal, Sibanda said Biti was at ease with his position.
“I think he has. He is a disciplined politician. He would certainly understand the position of the president.
“He is not playing games. He is probably genuine about that. I know the honourable (Biti),” Sibanda said.
