The Mthwakazi Republic Party (MPR) has dismissed claims that it is engaged in coalition talks with the Nelson Chamisa-led Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC).
During his recent rallies in Bulilima West and Gwanda Central, Chamisa reportedly told his supporters that CCC was negotiating with MRP.
However, the MRP secretary for information and publicity for Matabeleland South province, Khethani Nxebalendoda Ndlovu, said CCC is no different from ZANU PF, hence, they will not negotiate with either of the parties. Said Ndlovu:
The party’s Matabeleland south leadership had a successful visit to Madlambuzi. It emerged that the CCC led by Chamisa had just swarmed the area propagating blue lies that they had struck a unity deal with MRP.
They claimed that the MRP was working with CCC, hence people must attend CCC meetings. Even their party leader Chamisa was quoted as claiming to be working with Mqondisi Moyo (MRP leader).
Let it be known that, under no circumstances will we, as MRP coalesce with CCC. Working with CCC is exactly the same as working with ZANU PF.
We can’t cooperate with ZANU PF, a party that led to the genocide of our people in the 1980s, and continues to lead the marginalisation of Mthwakazi, CCC is no different from ZANU PF.
