A senior MDC T party official while speaking to Zimbabwe Independent said MDC T members against the party’s secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora were plotting his demise ahead of the court-sanctioned congress set for October 2020.
Speaking to the publication on condition of anonymity, the official from the women’s assembly said:
Mwnzora’s biggest problem right now is that he is hobnobbing with violent people and his rivals are plotting to expel him from the party ahead of the congress and this will greatly affect his eligibility if it happens.
The official further made claims that Khupe and Mwonzora cannot work together and said:
There are even growing calls for a neutral person to stand instead of these top people whose ambitions work against the good of the party. Khupe and Mwonzora surely can never work together. People make the mistake of assuming that when Tsvangirai died, the party split into two camps led by Chamisa and Khupe, but the real truth is that it split into three camps, the third being led by Mwonzora.
Mwonzora has always had a support base big enough to cause problems and has always harboured presidential ambitions. So, his collaboration with Khupe against Chamisa was purely driven by self-interest and it’s coming out clearly now
Khupe and Mwonzora’s collaboration against Chamisa is reportedly on the rocks as the former is being accused of being a factional leader and nominating her camp only to replace MDC Alliance legislators she recalled from parly.
