Addressing a campaign rally at Chisamba Grounds in Mutare, MDC-T Vice President Nelson Chamisa who is standing in for ailing party leader Morgan Tsvangirai, warned his detractors, particularly top MDC-T officials, against plotting to derail the MDC Alliance and said that the coalition is irreversible.
The MDC-Alliance is irreversible; there is no debate about that. We are very loyal to it. If you have ulterior motives, then you can cause divisions. This is about people and this is about people who have suffered and the alliance is on the electoral act.
When contacted by NewsDay after the rally, Chamisa declined to comment. His comments came amid reports that some top MDC-T officials in Mutare had attempted to sabotage yesterday’s rally by absenting themselves while others distributed posters falsely indicating the venue as Sakubva Beit Hall. MDC-T Manicaland provincial chairman Trevor Saruwaka confirmed the hitches in organising the rally, but denied the sabotage reports.
