MDC-T leader, Morgan Tsvangirai has described Zanu PF political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere as a “confused weevil” following his claims that the former premier was a ruling party functionary.

Kasukuwere on Friday told journalists in Mt Darwin that Tsvangirai was a Zanu PF political commissar, his own position, because of his decision to recall 21 MDC-T MPs from Parliament and the subsequent resolution by his party to boycott by-elections for the seats.

Tsvangirai, through his spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka yesterday said Kasukuwere seemed desperate to have the MDC-T participate in the by-elections for the 14 seats that are up for grabs.

“Saviour Kasukuwere is a confused weevil. He appears desperate for us to participate in this cheap fraud,” said Tamborinyoka.

“The by-elections and any elections for that matter taking place in the absence of reforms is a circus and being part of any circus has never been our favourite pastime because we are a serious party. We are so serious that we take seriously the party’s highest decision making body congress which resolved that the party would not take part in any election in the absence of reforms.”

Tamborinyoka added: “You will see us abstaining from an election of a burial society committee leadership because the credibility of that election is not guaranteed. The problem is that the weevils have already eaten into this by-election.”

He said the MDC-T national executive and national council would meet soon and expose the shenanigans around the by-elections.

Tamborinyoka said the MDC-T congress in November last year adopted a road map to legitimacy and participating in already rigged elections was not among the four sign posts of the road map.

“We are concentrating on dealing with a bigger picture of the national electoral environment and in the meantime we will not sanitise petty theft disguised as elections so Morgan Tsvangirai and the MDC T are sticking to the decision of congress, but we understand Zanu PF is desperate for a competent political commissar that is why Kasukuwere wishes MT [Tsvangirai] were in their team,” he said.
