Morgen Komichi, outgoing MDC vice president has said that he is hurt by his loss as he expected victory at the just ended elective congress.
Komichi failed to retain his post as the Congress chose his rivals, Tendai Biti and Welshman Ncube.
Speaking at the Congress after his loss, Komichi said:
President (Nelson Chamisa) the line up that is before you today is the design of the Lord, you can not change it. When God designs the leadership all we have to do is follow.
As a human being who has been foreseeing victory, it is natural to feel hurt and disappointed. However, one should quickly accept it. Its the voters who have selected these leaders, so who am I to go against the people’s choice.
Komichi, however, pledged to give full support to the winning candidates and the party president. He said:
I will never abandon the revolution, neither will I leave my young man (Chamisa). Please help me to heal because I want to. I will support the president and the entire team with anything they need from me.
He managed to get 1 306 votes which fell short to Biti’s 1 672 and Ncube’s whopping 1 917.
