A group of disaffected former MDC members under the banner, In Defence of Morgan Tsvangirai Legacy (IDMTL), have slammed opposition leader Nelson Chamisa for hobnobbing with exiled ZANU PF G40 members.
IDMTL Chairperson Eddin Dzambara told journalists on Thursday that by accepting cash gifts from the likes of Jonathan Moyo and Patrick Zhuwao, Chamisa has opened the MDC to capture by Zanu PF. He said:
In a short period of time after Jonathan Moyo confessed his influence in the party, much to the disappointment of party members, senior party members Grace Kwinjeh and Tracy Mutinhiri resigned from the party.
Chamisa is being funded by G40 members, particularly Jonathan Moyo and Patrick Zhuwao as evidenced by their recent admission on Twitter that a total of $6 000 was availed to MDC by G40 for the purpose of campaigning and publicity.
Dzambara urged Chamisa to come out in the open and publicly deny his allegiance to ZANU PF’s G40 and the money he received from members of the faction.
The IDMTL also called upon the 2014 MDC national council and all structures to reconvene and reorganise the party outside alliance system.
