    The MDC-T president Mr Morgan Tsvangarai has finalresponded to what Mr Tendai Biti said he and his group of the Re-Newal team had fired,the MDC-T president and his executive.Mr Biti was supposed to call for an elective congress of the whole party.He and his group were trying to usurp power.Power is only attained at a congress,not for one to declare that Iam the leader.One has to be elected by the people.That’s democracy.Perhaps Mr Biti and his Re-Newal Team must go back to the drawing board.

    We could smell the rate when Biti was regarded as the best lawyer to represent his estwhile opposite, Mr. Gono of Zanu pf. Blue eyed jonathan moyo of MDC

    Biti is not behaving like a Lawyer. He should have known about how procedure breeds legitimation. His move smacks or a renegade and an impatient greedy man who cannot wait. But them everything comes to those who wait. God said to Saul….”wait for Samuel”….but Saul thought it was too late and he got feverish with impatience….the same fate for Mr Biti. We dont need a divisionist. Biti could have procedurally challenged Tsvangirai not t o behave like the rebel he is. His behaviour will give those who are waiting the excuse to rig again!! Biti, being the fine lawyer we know was well aware of these repercurssions but he was preoccupied with personal power at the expense of national interest. Not to say that Tsvangirai is the best but Biti’s conduct does not help the nation except himself and his coterie of hooligans. So Tsvangson till congress when procedure is followed. OK?

    Tendai Biti tested power as Minister of Finance….and the lawyer for Mr Gono…. We saw it coming Mr New Political Party. But dont destabilize Morgiza’s party. Behave like a civilized citizen. Kikikikikikiki

    Morgiza’s party? That is exactly what is wrong with the MDC-T, it has been personalized.Worse still, it has been personalized by someone who has no clue how to gain power.Only after expelling Biti and others, they bring the congress forward to October 2014,surrounded by sycophants any simpleton can guess what the outcome of that congress will be. Morgiza has no clue what political strategy is, he is intolerable of alternative thought,resorts to violence when ever his power is challenged. That is what Biti et al are trying to tell us, what Welshman tried to tell us in 2005. The truth of the matter is that with Morgiza at the helm, state house will remain a distant hope.Maybe that is for the better for I shudder to think what would happen if Morgiza becomes the President of Zimbabwe and commander in chief of the defence forces. Then we would be in trouble.
    Perhaps most people are not seeing this but the 2018 elections will be the most crucial in the history of the MDC. The only reason that the western countries are keeping the pressure on Zimbabwe is Mugabe. It is likely that Mugabe will not participate in the 2018 election and Zanu PF will field a moderate candidate.Despite what we are told, the guys at Jongwe house are not stupid, they will want to re-engage at some point. And so will the western world. Should that happen, our economic isolation will come to an end so will the relevance of MDC. Remember the foundation of MDC is in protest politics, fix the economy and people will have no need to protest. To avoid that eventuality, the MDC needs to reinvent its self and unfortunately, Morgiza is the face of the old MDC. Look at the established democracies, UK, USA, Australia etc, how often do they change leaders? Before you can demand change from Zanu Pf, first exercise that change in the MDC.
    And people, let us stop theorizing on non-existent conspiracies, Biti has not been bought by Zanu Pf, he has only expressed an alternative view.If MDC is a trully democratic party, they would explore the relevancy of that view, not condemn it .Think on this, now that both factions have expelled each other, technically this means that MDC does not exist anymore! That might seem funny now but I tell you, that eventuality will not remain distantf with Morgiza clinging to power.

    Biti must be made to account for every penny he received from his so-called brother Stanford of MDC South end branch in the UK to fund his campaign even though through the
    Twinning Programme he was not supposed to benefit

    Aaa Tsvangirai this Tsvangirai that… we all have our own short comings… we are all human beings. The enemy is not Tsvangirai… we all know it is Robert Mugabe.

    For how many years now is ZANU PF in power… my son who was born while Mugabe was in power has “grown beards…atova nendebvu zanu ichingotonga”

    Leadership is not about degrees ask Pro Mutambara… ask Prof Ncube…as Prf Jonathan.Mr Biti good luck with you endeavour …. I admire you as a good lawyer but not for what you did …you are a good lawyer but you behave otherwise!

    @the Oracle plse if you dont know hw parties go about their busines dont comment what you dont know,one question to you is,Did Biti and his guys had a quoram to suspend Tsvangirai?? If he had a quoram yes people were going to say thats ok but now he didnt have so the only vaid suspension is the one caried out on Monday were he ws suspended and that one wil stand in court.

    Biti should have learnt from Ncube at least. The road he is taking would not be easy. They lack grass root support from where most votes come from. Its a pity, educated but not learned.
