Tinashe Sambiri|MDC Alliance Secretary General, Charlton Hwende has said the defection of Tongai Matutu to Zanu PF is a non-event.
Matutu crossed the great divide on Monday and he told reporters he made a personal and bold decision to leave the MDC Alliance.
Zanu PF leader Emmerson Mnangagwa and his deputies Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi literally went into ecstatic frenzy as they embraced Matutu.
Hwende wrote on Twitter :
Shocked by this level of desperation shown by
@ZANUPF_Official leadership. A whole President and 2 Deputies receiving such a low key new Member. Mr Matutu resigned from the MDC A when he lost to Chair Gumbi
He also took a swipe at Douglas Mwonzora describing the MDC Alliance as a G-40 project.
“Mwonzora always lies about G40 involvement in MDC Alliance affairs.
This is a narrative that he got from @edmnangagwa
it’s meant to justify the crackdown on us by State Agents and MID operatives.
We have nothing to do with G40 we only take instructions from our Members.”
