“In Defense of Morgan Tsvangirai Legacy” Suffers A Huge Blow

Former Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai’s family has distanced itself from a group under the name, Morgan Tsvangirai Legacy.

The group of disgruntled MDC party members who have formed a pressure group has been resisting the current MDC leadership.

Manasa Tsvangirai, brother to the late opposition leader down-played the seriousness of the group. Speaking to the NewZimbabwe he said:

This is just a social media pressure group and it has nothing to do with the Tsvangirai family and it does not have our blessings,

We have no issues with them if they stick to just being a social media pressure group in support of the late Tsvangirai legacy but we will not allow them to monetise it.

We will never allow them and others to go beyond that and legalise their actions, which is the prerogative of the family.

The MDC national spokesperson Jacob Mafume also questioned the motive of the group. Mafume said:

If you want to talk about the legacy of a leader, you don’t form a pressure group to fight a political party he set up.

If you talk of a group that wants to preserve the legacy of a leader, you create a trust that gives scholarships, that enhances democracy, just like the Nelson Mandela Foundation, (Barack) Obama Foundation and so forth.

You don’t take his name to fight the legacy and the political party he set up, that is an oxymoron and that is an abuse of the legacy of Morgan Tsvangirai.

  1. Morgan tried his best, even when he was riddled with Cancer, to build a free, democratic Zimbabwe. His death was tragic. RIP Morgan. Your deeds are not forgotten here! Pity that Chamisa trashed them.
