MDC-T national chairman Lovemore Moyo has quit the party and his position citing among other issues, the un-constitutional power grab by leader Nelson Chamisa.
His adviser, Artwell Sibanda, told VOA Studio 7 that Moyo “will with immediate effect stop associating himself with this party.” Said Sibanda:
He has quit MDC as a card-carrying member and also in his position as chairman of the national movement. Since the appointment of vice presidents (Nelson Chamisa and Elias Mudzuri) which were a deviation from the principles of the Movement for Democratic Change coupled with a violent streak that has been on the rise in the MDC-T, the former national chairman cannot and will not continue to associate with a party that has deviated from its noble founding values and principles, non-violence, non-tribalism, sexism and constitutionalism. These are the values that made the MDC the party of the people.
Sibanda noted that Moyo will no longer be associated with Ms. Thokozani Khupe of the other MDC-T formation that has criticized Chamisa for allegedly grabbing the post of president following the death of Morgan Tsvangirai, who succumbed to cancer of the colon last month.
