President Robert Mugabe should retire from politics and go home to rest, MDC-T President Morgan Tsvangirai told an estimated 4 000 party supporters at Rudhaka Stadium on Sunday.

Tsvangirai, who visited developmental projects in the district before addressing a provincial MDC People’s Real Change Peace Rally, said: “In the interest of his legacy and family, Mugabe would be best advised to gracefully retire from his failed political career. However, if he wishes to suffer yet another humiliating crushing defeat at the coming elections, let him do so. Mugabe no longer had the capacity to focus into the future. He has no vision,” the Prime Minister said.

Tsvangirai swore never to involve MDC in any coalition government again as Zanu (PF) was an insincere partner beyond reform.

“I have experienced unimaginable disappointments in the GNU as it was impossible to work with Zanu (PF). It is just unpractical to partner with Mugabe and his sinking party in government. Zanu (PF) was aware that its fulfilment of the GPA would spell the end of its political existence, hence the dragging of its feet. I am glad that at least the GPA managed to bring about some economic stability, social delivery and some reforms. Unfortunately, Zanu (PF) would not go further than that.”

Tsvangirai said he was told by party co-chairperson at Copac, Douglas Mwonzora, that the constitution referendum was expected early next year. This would be followed by the much awaited elections.
