Chamisa Receives Huge Boost Ahead Of Showdown With Mwonzora

MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa has received the backing of many structures in the party ahead of a potentially bruising contest for the presidency.

In an interview with the Daily News on Monday, Mashonaland West provincial secretary Edson Ndirayire said:

We met as a provincial executive council on Sunday and unanimously agreed to stand by the president (Chamisa) so that he takes us to 2023.

It was not a difficult decision to reach because what he has done so far is there for all to see … It is clear that nobody in the party at present can match that.

Chamisa has also received the backing of Mashonaland East province. Provincial chairperson Piniel Denga had this to say:

As the chairman, I made that proposal and it was agreed to by all … so when the nomination day comes, we are simply going to refer to that agreement, and so our position is already clear that we are going with Chamisa.

Women’s assembly chairperson Lynnet Karenyi-Kore also backed Chamisa. She said:

As women, we are confident that only Chamisa has what it takes now. He managed to get us over two million votes despite the handicap of having to be thrown at the deep end at the last minute.

We still want him to continue and see where he takes us because the road we have travelled with him so far is promising … and so comes congress he is our man.

The MDC youth wing’s secretary-general Lovemore Chinoputsa said:

Our support for Chamisa is premised on the principle that young people should be promoted into positions of leadership — hence for purposes of this Congress, we have taken a decision to work towards convincing all other structures in this regard.
