Zanu-PF divisions better than those in MDC, Mugabe claims

11 February 2016, 19:24

Harare - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, 91, has warned the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader, Morgan Tsvangirai not to "take pride in Zanu-PF misfortunes", claiming that the situation in the MDC was worse than that in his party.

According to New Zimbabwe, Mugabe said this while calling on Zanu-PF party bigwigs to desist from attacking each other in the media, saying their actions were "embarrassing" as they were playing into the hands of detractors.

The veteran leader was addressing party supporters gathered at the Zanu-PF headquarters in Harare.

Mugabe's party is face with succession battles, as two factional groups position themselves for an eventual take over from the nonagenarian.

Mugabe said some opposition parties which were more divided than Zanu-PF were now celebrating, thinking that they were better than his ruling party.

"These factional fights are giving currency to the opposition. To people like Tsvangirai, now they think Zanu-PF is more divided than their own party.

"But he does not realise that his party is finished. He has nothing left. In fact, he is left with [a]part of a party. I hear in the past few days he admitted that he cannot win against us," Mugabe was quoted saying.

Mugabe also reminded party members that Zanu-PF had channels to address grievances, describing the behavior of some politburo members in the past weeks as "indiscipline at its worst", the state-owned Herald newspaper said.

Mugabe's remarks came in the wake of frenzied tweeting by Higher and Tertiary Minister Jonathan Moyo.

Moyo has been under fire for fanning factionalism and using his Twitter account to attack senior Zanu-PF members, among them Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
