MDC Vice President Welshman Ncube has taken the time to reflect on How Morgen Komich And Douglas Mwoznora could utilise “the dud” that the supreme court sold them.
According to Wikipedia:
a dud is a thing that fails to work properly or is otherwise unsatisfactory or worthless.
The fundi opined:
Maybe before we go to bed tonight we could reflect a little on how Komichi & Mwonzora cd utilise the dud the Supreme Court sold them. In terms of the MDCT constitution an Extraordinary Congress elects a President to complete the uncompleted term of the deceased President.
The problem though is that President Tsvangirai’s term expired on 1 November last year. So what will be the term of office of the President the Supreme Court has ordered them to elect within the next 3 months now that President Tsvangirai’s term long expired already?
Komichi and Mwonzora’s own terms of office expired on 1 November 2019. So what will happen to their expired terms of office? The MDCT Constitution has no provision for the election of any other office bearer other than the President at an Extraordinary Congress.
When will they call the regular Congress for the election of the members of the National Executive Committee and National Council whose terms of office have already expired?
Before we even get there, the MDCT Constitution requires that the Notice of an Extraordinary Congress be given by the National Council. Komichi and Mwonzora don’t have on their side even a fraction, let alone a quorum of the National Council as it was composed on 14 February 2014
So how will they cause that National Council to give the requisite Notice convening the Extraordinary Congress given that the order of the Supreme Court cannot be a licence to disregard the MDCT Constitution on how to give notice of the Extraordinary Congress?
Even worse for them, where will they get the quorum from for the Supreme Court ordered Extraordinary Congress given that they don’t have on their side the National Council, the Provincial Executive committees, the district executive committees, etc, etc.
Professor Ncube’s reflection comes at a time the MDC Alliance is defending itself after a supreme court ruling declared that Chamisa was not the MDC rightful leader.
