Addressing a press briefing at MDC headquarters, Nelson Chamisa responded to Deputy Defence Minister Victor Matemadanda’s statement he made last year.
Matemadanda declared that the war veterans preferred Douglas Mwonzora to take charge of the MDC saying Chamisa was immature. However, Chamisa said Matemadanda is an admirer of MDC that is why he is commenting on the party. He also said the war veterans’ deputy minister prefers him. Said Chamisa:
They want to try and divide us by thinking that they can choose one in our midst. This is not a Zanu PF congress. This is an MDC congress. Why are they showing preference of one candidate or the other? But I know that inside his heart Matemadanda prefers Chamisa.
