MDC-T deputy chairperson Morgen Komichi claimed that party supporters across the country are keen on attending the pending extra-ordinary congress (EOC) to choose the opposition party’s substantive executive.
Komichi however, refused to reveal the position he is aiming for, saying it was up to God and the people to decide for him. He said:
In Gwanda, people are phoning me, in Binga, they are also calling me. They are committing themselves to come, they are prepared even to sell their goats and cattle to come and attend this congress.
They are prepared to come and sleep outside for the sake of this congress. Some people are saying to me ‘Morgan Tsvangirai has risen from the dead’. They are saying our party is back on track.
… It is up to God and the people to decide the position they want for me. That question is, therefore, really difficult for me to answer, it is up to the people.
Meanwhile, MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa’s close confidant, Jameson Timba said his party is not worried about “small boy” Douglas Mwonzora, the MDC-T secretary-general.
