Morgen Komichi has been reminded that at some point he said that the ‘T’ in MDC-T stood for Thokozani.
Thokozani was in reference to Dr Thokozani Khupe the leader of the opposition MDC-T which was formed in 2018 at the height of intra-party fights for the stewardship of the MDC.
Leaders of the MDC-T adopted the moniker “MDC-T” that was a moniker developed to distinguish the Tsvangirayi faction from that of Welshman Ncube/Arthur Mutambara when the MDC split.
When Khupe adopted it in 2018, it was a strategy to make supporters see she was leading the legitimate faction that was formed by the late former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.
A video clip in which Komichi made the remarks is circulated when the former MDC vice president quickly endorsed the Supreme Court ruling which restored Khupe as the legitimate leader of the party.
