MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa has turned 41 today. Chamisa became MDC leader after the death of founding party president Morgan Tsvangirai died in February in February 2018.
Tsvangirai’s daughter, Vimbai Tsvangirayi Java wished Chamisa a long life full of blessings. Writing on Twitter on Saturday, Vimbai said:
Happy birthday to the People’s President Adv Nelson Chamisa. Wishing you many more years of blessings and grace. May God continue to give you wisdom and guidance on this journey.
A few months after becoming MDC president, Chamisa contested the Presidential election where he lost narrowly in controversial circumstances to ZANU PF’s Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Chamisa became so popular that at one point ZANU PF was mulling plans to raise the minimum presidential age limit in order to bar him from contesting the next two elections.
