Political observers have condemned intra-party violence that has rocked the MDC-Tâ€™s Provincial elections, saying this has revealed the partyâ€™s violence nature in solving political issues.
The violence in Bulawayo, Mutare and Mashonaland West shook the ranks of the MDC-T as members jostled for positions ahead of the partyâ€™s congress set for this weekend.
Political Analyst, Dr Maxwell Hove, described the recent spates of violence as a true reflection of the partyâ€™s desire to instigate violence and provoke other political parties to send incorrect signals to the international community.
â€œThe MDC-T has in the past been quick to apportion blame over politically motivated violence to Zanu PF and the unfolding developments should come as a wakeup call to the entire international community,â€ Dr Hove said.
The MDC-T leader, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is on record for having misled the SADC Troika Summit that the country is incapable of conducting free and fair elections owing to violence which he attributed to Zanu PF.
However, political commentator, Mr Alexander Rusero said the latest violent clashes in the Premierâ€™s party have proved that violence is entrenched in the MDC-T.
â€œThe recent developments within the MDC-T are not surprising given the founding of the political party on violence,â€ Mr Rusero said.
The Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe, has taken every opportunity to adviceÂ Zimbabweans on the need to shun violence when resolving political matters and his independence message was no exception.
