Former MDC-T Vice President Says Party’s Candidate Selection Process Has Been Corrupted By Those With Money

Former MDC-T vice president Elias Mudzuri has bemoaned the way the candidate selection process is being done by the party. Mudzuri says that the party structures have been infiltrated as people with money and connections are being imposed ahead of long-serving members of the party. Writing on microblogging site Twitter, Mudzuri says,

We MDCT are being cruel to ourselves in candidate selection by allowing strangers a free ride at the expense of our long serving loyal committed cadres. Those with money and connections come through the window displacing poor trusted cadres.  Recipe for infiltration & destabilization.

His sentiments seem similar to those expressed by Job Sikhala who also said that the candidate selection had been compromised in order to tarnish the name of MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa. This comes after long-serving party cadre Jessie Majome announced that she was going to stand as an Independent in the 2018 harmonised elections complaining that she had been abused and pushed out.

  1. In a democracy, it’s not always the person you want who wins. In MDC however, they prefer selection rather than election.

  2. Mudzuri- you are the senior person in the party and we expect you at that level to fix the problem rather leaving everything for Nero. We do not want a lot of disgruntled candidates like Jesse. You should exercise your executive powers to fix things rather cry like a baby.

  3. Mudzuri must act as mature person we do not expect negative comments from him. The moment he point finger tothe more the other four fingers point himself. Better to keep quiet if you have nothing to say.

  4. at@Mudźuri i suppoŕt you but that guy Zvizwài why is he quite like that i suspeçt he has conñeçtion with pple he wants to be cañdidates nxaaa
