No Unity As Chamisa, Mudzuri Call For Separate Meetings Despite Tsvangirai’s Death

It seems as the leadership crisis in the opposition MDC-T party will not stop anytime soon after feuding vice presidents Elias Mudzuri and Nelson Chamisa called for separate meetings at two different locations. At a time when many are expecting the two to be united as they mourn their former principal, Morgan Tsvangirai, who died last night, the feud seems to be continuing. The two fell out after both claimed that they were the rightful acting president when Morgan Tsvangirai was still being treated in South Africa.

Using Microblogging site Twitter to communicate, Chamisa said:

The tragic passing on of Pres MT is a huge blow to the party and the nation. As a party of excellence, we will unite, be disciplined & honour our HERO. A special Executive meeting at 10.  Presser at 11 am Harvest house.

Mudzuri then later posted,

As we mourn our hero, Dr Tsvangirai I want to thank the State for all forms of assistance they have rendered to him and his family and also thank the hospital staff and govt of South Africa for the services rendered All senior officials to meet at his Highlands home 9:30 am today.

Party spokesperson Obert Gutu is yet to comment on the issue.

  1. Appreciate each other’s strengths and remember all those who died, have been persecuted, are hungry for a humane life and are looking up to you for a unified leadership which all of you are capable of providing. Backing down is not always a sign of weakness.

  2. If you want MDC to end with Tswangirai continue doing this Chamisa and Mudzuru, your leader is dead and you are busy fighting for his position.Why can’t you do that after burial.Plus there’s no need for you to fight just be there for each other so as to strengthen the party
