Obert Gutu banned from MDC-T HQ by the Vanguard

Obert Gutu banned from MDC-T HQ by the Vanguard
Published: 19 January 2018 (274 Views)
MDC-T Spokesperson Obert Gutu has dismissed claims that he has been banned from setting foot at the party's Harvest House headquarters by a group of party youths calling themselves The Vanguard.

According to NewZimbabwe.com the youths, ordinary supporters who are not in any structure of the party, circulated a statement purporting that they had, with immediate effect, suspended Gutu from speaking on behalf of the MDC-T and banned him from entering Harvest House.

The group was last year accused of battering party Vice President Thokozani Khupe and other senior party officials in Bulawayo who had organized a meeting to discuss the MDC Alliance a day after they had boycotted the launch of the Bulawayo chapter of the Alliance launch.

The youths accused Khupe, party chairperson Lovemore Moyo and National Organising Secretary Abednico Bhebhe of sabotaging the Alliance and party leader, Morgan Tsvangirai.

And in their statement, the youths are raising the same allegations against Gutu.

"We do hereby announce the suspension of Obert Chaurura Gutu with immediate effect from his position as spokesperson of the party. We have reached this decision after realizing his continued undermining of the Congress resolution and President Tsvangirai's Alliance building efforts."

They added; "For the meantime, Obert Gutu will not be allowed to speak on behalf of the party, to attend any party meeting or enter Harvest House. Any attempt to resist this directive will meet its right response according to the Order of the Vanguard mission statement of 2014,"

Gutu, however, dismissed the claims, saying he had just attended a meeting at the party headquarters.
