MDC-T Vice President Thokozani Khupe accused her counterpart Nelson Chamisa of being power hungry and staging a coup.
Khupe dressed down Chamisa down when he arrived at Tsvangirai’s Highlands home in the company of deputy national chairman Morgen Komichi. She accused the acting MDC-T president of being insensitive. She argues that Chamisa should have waited for Morgan Tsvangirai to be buried before going on with an MDC-T national council meeting which anointed him interim leader for the next 12 months. Said Khupe:
You can’t even wait for two days to have Tsvangirai buried so that you can do your shenanigans to get power? You are very power-hungry and your conduct leaves a lot to be desired. Even in our culture, even if there is a wedding and someone dies, the wedding is called off. Tsvangirai dies and you go on with a meeting to appoint yourself as leader. How shameful! All we were supposed to do was to suspend everything except funeral arrangements.
