MDC-T is insisting its leader Morgan Tsvangirai will be fit
THE main opposition MDC-T is insisting its leader Morgan Tsvangirai will be fit and ready to run the rigorous elections race in 2018 despite being blighted by ill health and growing calls from senior party members and family for him to step down.
Party spokesperson Obert Gutu dismissed statements made by Eddie Cross on his blog, which he passed off as sentiments from the family.
Gutu said Cross had no authority to speak on behalf of Tsvangirai, his family or the party and the opinions expressed he expressed were purely personal.
“President Tsvangirai is doing very well and we want to thank God for the wonderful work that He continues to do in healing, you know doctors treat and God heals,” he said.
“We are happy he is on the rebound and that he will be back very soon. I am not even going to dignify the comments of the senior official because he was writing in his personal capacity.
