The late Morgan Tsvangirai’s youngest son Richard has endorsed MDC-T acting president Nelson Chamisa as the successor to his father.
Richard,who made an appearance at MDC-T’s Harvest House headquarters, said Chamisa was the chosen one who was with his father since 1999 when the party was formed. Said RIchard:
This man (Chamisa) is a true leader, he is the one who walked a great distance with my father and he knows what is needed for this party to move on. So lets rally behind him and give him maximum support ahead of the elections. My father would be very proud to be replaced by such a man with great qualities,” said Richard.
Richard’s comments come after the mother to the late Tsvangirai, threatened to commit suicide if Chamisa and Tsvangirai’s widow, Elizabeth attend the burial of the former trade unionist. Tsvangirai’s wife is believed to be Chamisa’s supporter. Reports suggest Tsvangirai’s family is rooting for Engineer Elias Mudzuri to take over the MDC-T leadership while some senior party leaders are for Chamisa.
