Embattled MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai was embarrassed in Gweru yesterday when vendors heckled him during his tour of vending stalls in the city.
The former Prime Minister’s aides struggled to keep away the hecklers, some of whom were shouting, “Go and tell Britain to remove the illegal sanctions you advocated for.”
Tsvangirai was accompanied by Gweru Mayor, Councillor Hamutendi Kombayi. Vendors said Tsvangirai was wasting ratepayers’ money by touring the city.
They said their lives were not going to change for the better just because he had visited them.
More drama was to follow at TM Supermarket when a resident was assaulted and pushed away by Tsvangirai’s aides as the man tried to find his way towards the MDC-T leader.
The man wanted to throw some fliers denouncing the MDC-T leader’s visit.
