The Member of Parliament for Goromonzi West Constituency and Deputy Minister for Information and Publicity, Energy Mutodi says that MDC’s late founding president’s children should take over the party leadership.
Mutodi’s comments follow the recent victory of an opposition party in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The election officials in the DRC declared Félix Tshisekedi to be the winner against the incumbent, Joseph Kabila. Felix Tshisekedi is the son of the late veteran opposition leader Etienne Tshisekedi.
Mutodi said that Tsvangirai’s children will have a better chance of winning compared to Chamisa whom he said is arrogant. Mutodi had this to say:
With the DRC election commission declaring Félix Tshisekedi as President-Elect of Congo, it’s high time Tsvangirai’s children take over the MDC, the party of their father. They stand a better chance. NC can never win an election, not even unity talks because of his arrogance.
According to BBC.com, Etienne Tshisekedi founded the Union for Democracy and Social Progress (known by its French initials UDPS) in 1982, and was a feared rival of dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, who died months after being ousted in 1997, and later of Presidents Laurent and Joseph Kabila.
