Biti Regrets ‘Tribal’ Tweet


By Zandile Tandi

MDC-Alliance vice president Tendai Biti has apologised after receiving a backlash from people over his tweet in which he insinuated people from Chipinge practised witchcraft.

The tweet was in response to Professor Lovemore Madhuku’s post that President Emmerson Mnangagwa had not violated the constitution by failing and or neglecting to inform the nation of Vice President Kembo Mohadi’s resignation.

Responding to Madhuku’s statement Biti said, “Lovemore you are very wrong.”
“The golden rule of statutory law is the ordinary natural meaning of words.

“Your contextual approach within the context of this debate is pure witchcraft.
“But then again you come from Chipinge.”

Wednesday Biti, tweeted, “My initial tweet and its reference to witchcraft and Chipinge was a metaphor, zest, and humor.”

“But upon realizing it could be misunderstood, l took it down.

“Any misunderstanding is therefore regretted.”
