Chamisa Forced To Change Party Name After Courts Took Too Long To Resolve Dispute With Khupe: Mwonzora


Secretary-General of the Nelson Chamisa led MDC-T Douglas Mwonzora has revealed that the party resolved to register for the July 30 elections as the MDC Alliance after the courts took to long to resolve the dispute between them and Thokozani Khupe. The Supreme Court ordered the High Court to resolve the fight over the MDC-T name and symbols between Chamisa’s camp and the breakaway MDC-T party led by Thokozani Khupe. Said Mwonzora,

We are filing as the MDC Alliance to distinguish us from our other cousins. For the purposes of this election, the MDC Alliance is a political formation. We did that to get around the legal hurdles on whether we are a political party or not. And yes we are a political party. We hope Zec (Zimbabwe Electoral Commission) sticks to what is fair to start the ballot by the surname, not first name in order to suit certain candidates.
