Background

Tracy Mutinhiri was born in 1956. She is the former wife of retired brigadier Ambrose Mutinhiri and mother to socialite, Vimbai Mutinhiri[1]

Firing From ZANU PF

She was a member of ZANU PF and a former deputy minister before her expulsion from the party in August 2011. The charges raised by the ZANU PF disciplinary body against Mutinhiri alleged that she had engaged in actions which were not in line with ZANU PF's constitution and its standing regulations under Article 3, Section 18 (1) of the party’s constitution. After her expulsion, Mutinhiri inevitably lost both her portfolios as deputy minister of Labour and Social Welfare and legislator for Marondera East.

The Joining of MDC T

After Mutinhiri was expelled from ZANU PF, Mutinhiri joined the MDC in May 2012. Thereafter she contested for a parliamentary seat against former husband Ambrose Mutinhiri. There were mixed reactions from the MDC T camp and ZANU PF over the crossing of floors by Tracy Mutinhiri. The MDC stated that they would welcome her with open arms after her ill-treatment from ZANU PF while ZANU PF insisted that she was a traitor and deserved what she got.
