Africa-Press – Zimbabwe. Recalled Masvingo Urban ward 3 councillor, Tarusenga Vhembo (MDC Alliance), said that he is ready to contest by-elections set for 26 March this year on either an MDC Alliance or MDC-T ticket.
The MDC-T, which recalled Vhembo, is led by Douglas Mwonzora, while the MDC Alliance is led by Nelson Chamisa.
In an interview with NewZimbabwe.com, Vhembo said he will take the offer from any of the two factions depending on which side approaches his first. He said;
Right now, I am not sure what’s going on because the Chamisa-led MDC hasn’t told me that they no longer need me.
If they tell me that, I will go where I’m wanted, but it seems both sides want me.
Vhembo was recalled by Mwonzora last year together with three other Masvingo Urban MDC councillors, Godfrey Kurauone (ward 4), Daniel Mberikunashe (ward 5), and Richard Musekiwa (ward 7), on allegations of hobnobbing with Chamisa.
Mwonzora later apologised, claiming Vhembo had been fired by mistake and promised to reinstate him. However, Vhembo is still to be reinstated.
