MDC-T acting president Thokozani Khupe has sensationally claimed that her party was part of the MDC Alliance which contested the 2018 harmonised elections under Nelson Chamisa’s leadership.
Khupe made the startling claims during an interview with The Sunday Mail in which she said Chamisa should account for $2 million of the party’s $7 million total allocation which the government released to the MDC-Alliance under the Political Parties Finance Act. Said Khupe:
Currently, I do not have details of how the money was used. I have read also in the media about the allegations [that the funds vanished from the MDC Alliance’s coffers].

In the MDC-A, we have our party MDC-T; certainly, we will be interested to find out what has been happening with regards to public funds under the previous leadership of Mr Nelson Chamisa.
I would like to lead a corruption-free organisation and if time permits, I would like to get to the bottom of the matter.
Khupe’s remarks come in the wake of last week’s Supreme Court ruling which nullified Chamisa’ endorsement by the party’s National Council as substantive president in 2018.
The Court ruled that Khupe was the legitimate acting president of the party as the most senior elected official after the death of founding president Morgan Tsvangirai on February 14 2018.
