MDC-T president Thokozani Khupe said that her party is preparing to hold an extraordinary Congress in line with a recent High Court ruling by Justice Edith Mushore.
The High Court ruled that the late MDC founding president Morgan Tsvangirai acted unlawfully when he appointed Nelson Chamisa and Elias Mudzuri as deputies alongside Khupe.
As such, Chamisa’s ascendancy to the MDC presidency was declared null and void.
In a statement issued through her spokesperson Khaliphani Phugeni, Khupe said:
The preparations for the MDC-T extraordinary congress are at an advanced in line with the High Court Judgment.
Very soon all the delegates of our 2014 congress will have an opportunity to once again retain our movement to its former glory days of steadfastness to the culture, character, values and principles of Social Democracy.
There is, therefore, no need to panic or even employ money and energy in stopping some gathering purported to be our congress as such a gathering is null and void and only amounts to a jamboree.
I will soon be visiting all the districts and wards of our Movement in preparation for the MDC-T legitimate Extra-Ordinary Congress.
