MDC-T leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, who snubbed Wednesdayâ€™s National Anti-Sanctions Petition Campaign Launch says his party has no obligation to call for the removal of illegal sanctions imposed on the country by the west, arguing that he was not part of a government that caused their imposition in the first place.
Addressing a media briefing at his Strathaven home in Harare, Prime Minister Tsvangirai claimed his party has no role to play in condemning illegal sanctions as it is not responsible for their imposition in the first place.
Despite, Mr Tsvangiraiâ€™s denial that his party was not involved in bringing the sanctions to Zimbabwe, former British Foreign Secretary, Mr David Milliband made it clear last year while addressing the House of Commons that Britain can consider removing sanctions on Zimbabwe through advice from the MDC.
Wikileaks, a whistle blower website, has also revealed that MDC -T Secretary General, Mr Tendai Biti provided the list of names for candidates put on the sanctions list.
Responding to questions on the absence of his party at the National Anti-Sanctions Petition Campaign launch by the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe this Tuesday afternoon, Mr Tsvangirai described the initiative as a Zanu-PF programme attended by Zanu-PF supporters, claiming that he is not a Zanu-PF loyalist.
This however, is in contradiction with Article 5 of the Global Political Agreement (GPA), which compel all the signatories to the GPA to unanimously call for the removal of illegal sanctions.
Turning to the uprisings in the Arab world, Mr Tsvangirai said he has urged his supporters to stand by what he called their brothers and sisters in the Arab world as the people are trying to assert their freedom through the removal of tyrants and dictators.
This confirms the notion that Mr Tsvangirai supports the revolt in Libya, which is being sponsored by the Americans, who have since sent arms to support the uprisings.
The revelations that Tsvangirai is sympathetic to the unconstitutional removal of governments which are supported by detractors confirms the belief that he is a puppet of the west as he recently voiced similar sentiments in a fox news interview when the Egyptians took to the streets to compel Mr Hosni Mubaraki to cede power.
The spates of violence across the country began when PM Tsvangirai said in an interview with Fox News that the violent protests in Egypt could also happen in Zimbabwe and the arrested culprits are MDC-T supporters, a clear indication that their leader supports violence to effect regime change.
