According to other party members that spoke on condition of anonymity, Matutu, who last year was convicted of assaulting Chief Serima, kept on interjecting while Tsvangirai was addressing a meeting before he was finally ordered out.
Tsvangirai had gone to Masvingo to try and unite different factions of his MDC-T party after provincial elections held recently left the party more divided ahead of the party’s national congress expected to be held in Bulawayo at the end of this month.
Matutu confirmed that he was ordered to leave the meeting.
“That’s what happened,” he said.
“I did not even last five minutes outside, before he called me back in again,” Matutu said.
