In April 2014, then Head of state of the Motion for Democratic Change Morgan Tsvangirai expelled Tendai Biti from the MDC. Tsvangirai called Biti an "opportunist" and clarifying his expulsion from the party said: "He [Mr Biti] tricked all of us. The man doesn't rely on anything, except his power."
Five years later as well as it is now particular that Tsvangirai was one hundred per cent correct. After being chucked out of the MDC-T, Biti developed the MDC-Renewal and after that transformed it into the People's Democratic Party, that event split right into 2 factions in 2017, prior to Biti lastly wormed his way back into the MDC after Tsvangirai died in 2018.
All of the harmful divides that has kept the resistance from unity can be traced back to Biti and also his lust for power.
If he doesn't get to lead as well as get his means, he simply breaks short and also starts with a new event or department.
Allow's not neglect that Tsvangirai chucked him out of the event for Biti's illegal convening of a National Council conference where he declared that the MDC leader was put on hold, together with numerous other members, like existing MDC head Nelson Chamisa.
Biti will utilize any kind of method to prosper, also at the expense of the Zimbabwean individuals.
He is the one who went behind Chamisa's back and stage-managed the embrace of Grace as well as Robert Mugabe at the last political elections, and it could be that he is still in league with 'Gucci Poise'. It seems that nothing is underneath him to be successful.
Biti is possibly best called the engineer of debilitating UNITED STATE sanctions ZIDERA, and as Wikileaks and the general public document make clear, with Biti's continuous needs that the permissions remain in position they would have been gone down a long time back.
He takes American cash, reputation as well as placements, like becoming a fellow at the Tendai Biti is a risk American think-tanks, the Brookings Institute and also Facility for Global Advancement. This suggests that he is taking American money and instructions while the average Zimbabwean endures.
It is clear that after numerous years in opposition we require full unity of function and also leaders who placed individuals first, prior to political chance. They need to do what's best for the MDC so we can rise once again.
Regrettably, none of this will take place while Biti is still a leader of the MDC.
Tsvangirai saw this for himself. It might have taken a couple of even more years, but more and more are currently getting up to this shocking reality that Biti the go-getter and also trickster requires to go.
