MDC-T secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora on Monday claimed to have taken over the party’s headquarters, Morgan Richard Tsvangirai (MRT) House located in central Harare.
Mwonzora said the MDC-T, as a law-abiding party, will keep the offices locked until the 21-day national lockdown lapses. He said:
I am the secretary-general and I am in charge of the day-to-day running of the party. I have closed the party offices up until the end of the 21-day lockdown. We have to follow the law.
Mwonzora’s claims come after the Supreme Court ruling that declared Thokozani Khupe the legitimate leader of the opposition party.
The Court further ruled that the MDC-T should go back to its 2014 structures before calling for a congress in 90 days.
