Mutambara, Ncube clash again

welsh_ncubeHARARE Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara and MDC-N president Welshman Ncube (Pictured) look headed for collision at todays SADC Troika summit, to which both have been invited.

The two are embroiled in an increasingly acrimonious dispute over who leads the MDC. “Yes we have been invited,” Ncube told The Zimbabwean. “We have no right to tell SADC who it should or should not invite to its meetings. All we know is that he (Mutambara) can not attend as the MDC President, even if invited as such, because he is interdicted by a court order from attending as MDC President because he is not.

Ncube obtained an interdict from Justice Nicholas Ndou that stopped Mutambara from claiming he was still party president. Mutambara alleges Ndou worked in cahoots with Ncube in granting the order. Ncube had also wanted the High Court to stop Mutambara representing the party at the Troika meeting, at which President Jacob Zuma will present his report on the outstanding issues in the implementation of the GPA.

Ndou did not grant that relief, but ruled that Mutambara was no longer MDC president because he had stepped down at congress and handed the baton to Ncube.
