Writing in a column in The Herald, Zanu-PF United Kingdom, Nick Mangwana said MDC-T secretary general Douglas Mwonzora is waiting for his chance to strike against Nelson Chamisa.
Mangwana writes that Mwonzora wants the MDC-T presidency and is likely going to strike immediately after the elections regardless of the outcome. Below is an excerpt of Mangwana’s article:
Mwonzora chose a different approach to his allies. To stay under Chamisa and wait his moment to strike. At the moment he is trying to pretend to preserve party unity for the sake of an electoral payoff, after the election that might not happen. What he is assured of is purging at the December congress. There will be a new executive, which will include coalition partners but exclude Mwonzora and all the leaders being systematically replaced by the former ZINASU cadres.
Let’s face it, this coalition is a ragtag assemblage of little organisations with no internal coherence. They lack an ideological synchrony that will ensure that they cannot resist natural power dynamics. Right now the unity of purpose they have is based on the self-serving quest for power.
