Jacob Ngarivhume’s Transform Zimbabwe political party has threated to ditch the coalition MDC Alliance after making claims that the party was being marginalised by the MDC-T.
The party claimed that the distribution of parliamentary and council seats was now going against the spirit of the coalition agreement.
Speaking at a conference, Ngarivhume said,
Transform Zimbabwe Congress acknowledged the compromises made by the party in accepting a 19 seat allocation in the MDC Alliance.
Among the concerns raised was the general disregard for the letter and spirit of the Alliance agreement by MDC-T through appointing candidates in constituencies earmarked for Alliance partners.
The Alliance institutionalisation process has not progressed as agreed and there was a general sentiment that the Alliance was now heavily reliant on MDC T party infrastructure.
