MDC-T secretary for Information and Publicity, Nqobizitha Dumakile Khumaloreleased a statement on Friday 27 August noting that MDC Alliance principals held a meeting and acknowledged MDC-T leader, Douglas Mwonzora as the leader of the pact.
The MDC Alliance, a union of seven political parties, was formed in 2017 to unseat the ruling ZANU PF. There have been fights between the MDC-T led by Mwonzora and MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa over the name with each side claiming to be the legitimate one.
Pindula News presents a statement released by MDC-T following the “Pact Meeting” held at the Morgan Tsvangirai House formerly Harvest House.
Today the MDC Alliance Principals Forum met under strict COVID regulations at Morgan Tsvangirai House in Harare. The meeting was chaired by MDC-T President Douglas Mwonzora.
The various political party leaders acknowledged President Mwonzora as the leader of the MDC Alliance, in line with the constituting document of the pact. The meeting reasserted full commitment to the Alliance Agreement.
The meeting, however, noted the continued abuse of the MDC Alliance name and symbols and urged those doing so to cease and desist forthwith. The meeting further agreed that it heartily welcomes and accepts any political players who subscribe to the MDC Alliance ethos.
The meeting also deliberated and asserted its full commitment to inclusive, genuine and unconditional dialogue to end problems currently afflicting many Zimbabweans.
The MDC Alliance Principals Forum also took the opportunity to warmly congratulate President Hakainde Hichilema on his recent election as the President of Zambia. The Forum noted the smooth transfer of power in Zambia and acknowledged the role all political actors played to facilitate the process.
