Former Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) secretary general Wellington Chibhebhe is being touted as one of the likely challengers to Nelson Chamisa for the MDC presidency as the party is set to hold an elective Congress in May this year.
A top MDC official familiar with the goings-on within the party had this to say:
Chamisa will be contested and thus far three names are being bandied about. Mudzuri, Mwonzora and Chibhebhe. Chibhebhe was actually being touted as Tsvangirai’s possible successor before Chamisa pulled his stunt last year.
However, things have changed a lot. Chibhebhe would now just be a name. A lot of water has passed under the bridge. Mudzuri and Mwonzora are strong candidates but Chamisa is a shoo-in to retain his position.
NewZimbabwe sources claim that Tsvangirai’s daughter Vimbai, who serves as Glen View lawmaker is vying for the women’s assembly top job.
