Former MDC Legislator Joins ED
2 November 2020

By A Correspondent- Former MDC legislator for Masvingo Central Tongai Matutu has rejoined the ruling Zanu PF saying the opposition party “in its various forms” has lost direction.

President Mnangagwa said he felt elated in welcoming back “home” Cde Matutu.

He said more people were expected to follow suit as they were fed up by the loss of direction within the MDCs.

The former Youth and Indigenisation deputy Minister and MDC member in 2019 failed to secure a single nomination for the MDC’s Masvingo chairperson post.

He is among MDC members who left the party to form the People’s Democratic Party, then led by Tendai Biti.

Matutu’s departure from MDC comes when the main opposition in the country is arguably at its weakest point due to the leadership crisis that manifested during the last days of its late leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
