MDC Treasurer General aspirant David Coltart has denigrated Thokozani Khuphe over her remarks that she wanted to reclaim her leadership in the MDC. Khuphe’s remarks came after the High Court nullified Nelson Chamisa’s presidency in the party.
The court ordered the party to go to an extraordinary congress to elect a new leader. Commenting
Dear Thoko Zanu Khupe … You did your congress together with Gutu, Linda Masarira and others, you were elected president and you indicated that your party is the original MDC-T. You participated in the presidential race using the name MDC-T and you got 0.9 percent … Chamisa also participated and got over two and half million votes, so I don’t see the logic why you are saying you want to lead the MDC, which MDC?
Coltart further described Khuphe’s decision as total madness. He added:
You want to be a leader of 2 million people who didn’t vote for you really, this is total madness give us a break madam Khupe …This will not work, you will not work, Chamisa will work … Simple.
Chamisa has engaged advocate Thabani Mpofu to represent him in the matter. Meanwhile, Khuphe has since roped in Professor Lovemore Madhuku to help her implement the court order.
Chamisa’s supporters and sympathisers are arguing that the ruling was influenced by the ruling ZANU PF which prefers any opposition leader but Chamisa.
