The youthful MDC leader Nelson Chamisa while addressing his huge followers online in the e-rally yesterday took a jibe at the MDC T led by Thokozani Khupe and said they were going to be destroyed by their enemies soon as speculation about the Khupe faction soliciting help from the government to destroy the MDC Alliance increases.
Said the firebrand lawyer and politician:
If you are a political leader, when you go and seek an enemy so that you fight your family, that’s your end. Never go to the enemy to fight your family, once the enemy finishes with your family it will come after you
Chamisa took the time to address the possibility of the party losing the MDC Alliance name and said:
Some are afraid that we will lose the name MDC Alliance, the name has no significance, what is important is your agenda as Zimbabweans, and that is what we are going to be delivering, we have a strategy. We are already facing the future, we are already building livelihoods, we are gathering people and strengthening the party. Don’t be shaken, be comfortable the ship is under control. Thank God I am the captain. Thank God I am in good shape, thank God I am seeing clearly and the vision is very clear of where we are going
Chamisa also explained why the MDC Alliance kept saying the MDC Alliance is different from the MDC T and said;
Understand this thing, MDC Alliance is a separate political party from the MDC-T, you can go to court and go visit sangomas, then go to the dead, try and speak to the late president Tsvangirai, that will not change that the MDC Alliance is a party left by Tsvangirai when he made a decision to move from MDC-T to unite the party and go back to the 2000 status. Don’t come pretending as if you want to build the legacy of Tsvangirai when you are actually destroying it,
Tsvangirai left me in charge, and I am in control, there is nothing you are going to do to change it, you can try by all means, but you won’t succeed. All that is happening that Mwonzora is running around claiming that he is the secretary-general is child’s play. You can’t continue being the SG when your term of office expired in October 2019 without going back to the membership.
At the same e-rally, Chamisa also reiterated that the party was behind the 31 July planned protest which is circulating on social media.
