MDC Secretary-General Douglas Mwonzora has said that he is almost done consulting the party structures and that he has rights to contest whatever position the party members think he’s suitable for.
Speaking in The Standard’s Big Interview with Obey Manayiti, Mwonzora was asked if he had made his mind up on which position he will contest at the 24 May MDC Alliance Congress. He responded:
I think now my mind is almost made, but I am still consulting within the party.
I am consulting the structures, the districts and I am almost through with the districts now.
I have consulted the provinces and I am through. I have an idea of where they want me to be deployed and I am going to be making an announcement when the time comes, but let me say that as a member of the MDC I have my rights to contest whatever poe sition my party thinks I am suited for.
The best people who know me and know what I am capable of are my colleagues within the pare ty and they are going to deploy me definitely.
The MDC Alliance congress set for 24-26 May will choose the late Morgan Tsvangirayi’s successor following his death in February 2018. Nelson Chamisa has been the defacto leader of the MDC – Alliance since the late leader’s death following a takeover of power.
