The 2013 harmonised elections in Zimbabwe once again brought about a disappointing result for MDC-T as they failed to secure a win. Since the results were announced, the President of MDC-T, Morgan Tsvangirai has not been very vocal about the events that took place before, during and after 31 July, 2013.
However, there have been a number of supporters and critics who have had a lot to say about him and the Movement for Democratic Change. This has included commentary from pundits that the party did not do much over the years to prepare themselves for the elections; that they haven’t done anything different to what they have done in the past to try and defeat Mugabe and Zanu-PF; that this event has marked the beginning of the end for Tsvangirai; that SADC/AU is not to blame; and the list goes on.
He recently sat down for an interview with Violet Gonda on 1st TV where they discussed a number of issues surrounding the elections and the way forward for MDC-T. Even though what Tsvangirai has to say may seem a bit vague and confusing at times, it gives a bit more insight into his thoughts about the elections, his current frame of mind, possible actions that they may take and the way forward for the party.
Watch it and let us know what your thoughts are (by leaving a comment below) on the future of Tsvangirai and MDC-T.
