People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Tendai Biti has told President Robert Mugabe that he should brace up for what’s coming because the Coalition of Democrats (CODE) is coming for him.
Speaking during the signing ceremony of PDP to the CODE, Biti said it is not going to be business as usual as the coalition is going to exert more pressure on the 93 year old leader.
“I personally believe we have not done enough to demand reforms, our response has not been equal to the abuse we have suffered. So far there has not been equal opposite force to the abuse.
“My final word to Zanu PF is, we are coming for you Mugabe, we are coming for your wives, we are coming for your kids and we are coming for your grand children.
“We are not asking for too much, but we are only asking for what is in the constitution, which is our happiness,” said Biti.
Biti’s PDP becomes the ninth opposition political party in the country to join the coalition of democrats; other parties include Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn, MDC-N, Renewal Democrats, DARE, ZUNDE, PDZ among others.
Opposition parties are banking on the power of coalition to unseat President Robert Mugabe who has led the country from 1980 and has given indicators that he will seeking another mandate to led.
Biti said he is not worried about President Robert Mugabe adding that God has an agenda with him and that the wall of Jericho will this time fall.
“You might ask if I am worried, no I am not worried and it’s not an accident that we are signing this CODE in church, it’s because God has an agenda with Mugabe and like the biblical Jericho he is going to fall,” he said.
The PDP leader also revealed that CODE was not in competition with any political party in the country, adding that everyone is welcome to join but they will not go out begging other parties to join the union.
Meanwhile, current CODE president Farai Mbira has revealed that their invitation to MDC-T, ZimPF, TZ and any other Zimbabwean still stand.
“We are Zimbabweans first so we must unite to reclaim our freedom together and we remain anti-nobody, our invitation to Morgan Tsvangirai, Joice Mujuru and Jacob Ngarivhume remain open.
“In fact their seats are empty and waiting for them on the table and any party that wants to join us is welcome,” he said.
