The People Democratic Party led by Mr Tendai Biti yesterday announced that it will unconditionally join Dr Joice Mujuru’s Zimbabwe People First and will not even front their leader as a presidential candidate for 2018 elections. 

PDP vice-president Mr Samuel Sipepa Nkomo announced this at a ZimPF rally which was addressed by Dr Mujuru at Manjolo Business Centre in Binga yesterday. Mr Sipepa Nkomo, who struggled to stand and spoke while seated, claimed Dr Mujuru was God-sent to save Zimbabwe as he quoted a verse from the book of Esther in the Bible.

“We bring a message of solidarity from PDP to say we are together. Zimbabwe is OK and all we need to do is change the driver and direction,” said Mr Sipepa Nkomo. Mr Sipepa Nkomo was accompanied by Messrs Gift Mabhena, Eugene Dube and Lameck Ndlovu, all PDP provincial members. PDP is an offshoot of MDC-T.

Speaking at the rally Dr Mujuru confirmed that her party has the same traits with the MDC-T which has been seeking to effect regime change with the help of western countries.

“When we combined with MDC-T in Gweru, some said I was a sellout. MDC-T had their demonstration and we had our rally so as opposition parties we agreed that as democratic parties we should unite when we do things that are common with our people,” she said.
