MDC-T Extra-Ordinary Congress: Latest developments
I have to advise all our MDC-T party structures, supporters, and delegates that the much-awaited EOC has been postponed to a date to be soon advised.
This development has been necessitated by logistical challenges that we had underestimated and these are being sorted out so that the party holds a seamless Extra-Ordinary Congress.
We owe it to our members to hold a transparent, democratic and credible Congress that will elect the successor to our late iconic leader, Dr Morgan Richard Tsvangirai. The decision to postpone Congress was arrived at after all the contestants agreed that more preparations needed to be done in order to deliver a credible Congress that will reflect the will of the 4500 MDC-T delegates.
The four contestants are Dr Thokozani Khupe, the Acting President, Engineer Elias Mudzuri, the Acting Vice National Chairperson, Dr Morgen Komichi, the, National Chairman and Advocate Douglas Mwonzora, the Secretary-General.
Yours In Solidarity
Dr Tapiwa Maji-Marefu MASHAKADA MDC-T Acting National Spokesperson
