Simba Makoni's response to his alleged dismissal from party

PRESS STATEMENT FROM MAVAMBO.KUSILE.DAWN ON THE STATEMENT BY THE SO-CALLED NATIONAL COORDINATING COMMITTEE OF MKD – \r\nWe are aware of the allegations made in a statement by a shadowy group of a so-called National Coordinating Committee against Independent presidential candidate Simba Makoni.

Because of the libelous nature of this completely false statement, we have engaged our lawyers with a view to taking legal action.

What we would like to assure the nation, however, is that Simba Makoni refuses to be distracted by these persons who are clearly driven by an anti-democratic agenda. He remains focused on delivering an honest and democratic dispensation in Zimbabwe. In this regard, work to build a new party continues undeterred by these spurious and false allegations from people who have no mandate from anybody.

Those who know Simba Makoni will attest to his commitment to democracy, good governance, transparency and respect for the people. This was, indeed, the reason he left ZANU PF in February 2008.

The people of Zimbabwe should remain resolute in their support and belief in Simba Makoni’s leadership.
