MDC-T Vice President Nelson Chamisa has denied reports that he is aiming to succeed Morgan Tsvangirai as the opposition party’s leader.
There is nothing to take over. If anything, we need a take-off, president Tsvangirai is well. He is our best foot forward in 2018, he is the popular candidate, he deserves all the support by all of us in the movement and in the country to deliver victory in the 2018 watershed elections. So, instead of people calling for him to step down [if ever there is anything like that happening], I think the correct message is to ask him to step up and to encourage every Zimbabwean to register to vote so that we deliver a decisive blow to poverty and backwardness.
Sources told NewsDay that Chamisa is being groomed to take over from the ailing Tsvangirai.
