Speaking on the Platform hosted by Larry Kwirirayi on ZiFM Stereo, Linda Masarira has responded to criticism that she is an opportunist after she was appointed spokesperson of the MDC-T faction led by Thokozani Khupe.
Masarira however said she has been an MDC-T member since 2000. Said Masarira:
I joined the MDC in 2000 and I still have my card when I joined the party. When I decided to lie dormant there were issues that I was not subscribing to. That is Linda Masarira.
When asked if she was still an MDC-T member when she announced she will be running for parliament as an independent candidate, Masarira said she has the right to change her mind since politics is dynamic. Said Linda:
The aspect of my changing my mind from being an independent candidate to running on a party ticket, you should understand that politics evolves on a daily basis, politics is dynamic. Sometimes you have to make the best decision on our quest for having nation building and having a common national vision.
