Addressing opposition supporters during a campaign rally in Plumtree on Sunday, MDC-N Welshman Ncube, claimed that MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa’s appointment had been endorsed by the guardian spirit at Njelele shrine.
Ncube dismissed reports that Chamisa grabbed power and revealed that he was anointed by the late Morgan Tsvangirai to take over. He also added that the MDC-T national council’s appointment of Chamisa as party president following Tsvangirai’s death last month was constitutional. Said Ncube:
This was the second anointing. For the third time we met as alliance principals of all seven political parties and we agreed that Chamisa will be the one to give President (Emmerson) Mnangagwa problems in this year’s election. You, who do not get satisfied by this, what do you want? Here, the King of Matabeleland South, who oversees the Njelele shrine, has brought rains today. We know that when rains come in such circumstances, God has agreed that he is a leader.
