NewsDay reporter Blessed Mhlanga has suggested that the excitement which Thokozani Khupe the leader of the opposition MDC-T has ahead of a Supreme Court ruling scheduled for this afternoon could be an indication of her victory in the power wrangle against Nelson Chamisa.
Khupe and Chamisa are embroiled in a power struggle which started when MDC founding leader, Morgan Tsvangirai was on his death bed.
Chamisa and Khupe, in that order, participated in 2018 elections using different party names, that is, MDC Alliance and MDC-T.

The Supreme Court rules on the power wrangle this afternoon. Commenting on Khupe’s excitement, Mhlanga said:
Khupe sounds happy ahead of the 3 pm judgment some insiders said they are already aware of the judgement. Chamisa could soon be moving out of Harvest House. Or Khupe will have to call for Congress soon.
Khupe had said:
I’ve just received a call from my lawyer @ informing me that the SC, judgement will be handed down today @ 3pm. I call upon our members & supporters to remain calm & accept whatever the outcome of judgement is. In unity let’s renew & build our great Party and Country!
The High Court had ruled in favour of Khupe which prompted Chamisa to appeal at the Supreme Court.
