Komichi Narrates How Thabani Mpofu Convinced Chamisa To Appeal At SC Against Advise From Hwende, Chidziva, Chibaya,

Opposition MDC official Morgen Komichi has said that he, together with Chalton Hwende, Happymore Chidziva and Amos Chibaya, tried to persuade party leader Nelson Chamisa not to appeal against a High Court ruling.

Komichi’s remarks come when Chamisa and his supporters are refusing to accept the ruling of the Supreme Court on the party’s leadership crisis that reduced Chamisa to a Secretary of Policy and Research in the party while Thokozani Khupe was reinstated as the leader.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Zim Morning Post, Komichi said that they approached Chamisa and advised him not to appeal but to hold a congress to correct the violation of the party constitution. He said:

We made our presentation to Chamisa at his advocate chambers offices. He did not respond to my advice but invited advocate Thabani Mpofu.

Mpofu argued saying he had found 11 faults in the judgment so there was need for an appeal and promised that he was going to win at the Supreme court.

Komichi claims that he had realised how serious the issues raised by “MDC-T acting president Thokozani Khupe” were.

Meanwhile, some MDC officials claim that Chamisa appealed the ruling because “there is confusion in the judiciary about the multiple and separate MDC political formations. The MDC Alliance did not want to fall victim to the confusion in a manner that would have disturbed the party from holding its congress in Gweru.”

  1. perhaps it is high time to change the legal advisors.When you persistently and consistently go to courts and lose dismally,after guarantees from the legal representatives that we will win and you lose,can’t you try something else? Moreover, MDC top hierarchy is made of lawyers who represent other parties and win.Probably ,they don’t think rationally when looking at their own cases but emotionally which impair their judgement.there was no need for appeal,if they had done their homework.The right thing should have been followed and avoided disagreements in the party and splitting.MDC could have done much better in the 2018 harmonised elections.MDC needs a president who is not selfish,asingati MDC ndini and who represent all people.The MDC performed dismally in parliamentary because the president was saying I don’t need parliament or councillors.At no point did he campaign for MPs.How can you rule when you don’t have parliamentary majority unless he wanted to become a dictator by suspending the parliament.I wonder why the MDC MPs can support a president who did not support them during campaigning.Even on contesting the validity of the election,you see the MDC (former) president only worried on the presidency only.Other MDC MPs who were contesting had no backing whatsoever from the MDC president.is this not selfish?.It is high time to call a spade, a spade.
