Tanonoka Joseph Whande says the MDC-T needs to acknowledge and value the support it has in and outside Zimbabwe, and explain some of its actions during its time in government. Whande says the party’s campaign to have targeted sanctions against ZANU PF removed, among other issues, has confused MDC-T supporters.

But the people from Midlands have shunned his call and are refusing to take his instructions, obviously fearing repercussions; while Manager says people should not get excited and buy into the idea of ZPF and MDC having elections this year.
