MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa’s allies in Midlands are set to participate in MDC-T Extraordinary Congress set for next month.
The Supreme Court in March this year ruled that MDC was supposed to revert to the 2014 structures so as to elect a successor to founding MDC Leader Morgan Tsvangirai who passed on in February 2018.
The judgement saw brawling between rival factions in MDC taking centre stage with Chamisa insisting the judgement was did not affect his party MDC Alliance as he was not part of the MDC-T.
Former Tsvangirai deputy Thokozani Khupe who was leading another MDC faction immediately assumed leadership of the party on an interim basis.
The MDC-T structures of 2014 are set to meet in Kwekwe this Saturday in preparation for the party’s Extra Ordinary Congress.
Speaking to this publication MDC-T 2014 Midlands North Chairperson Sedwell Bhebhe said the 2014 structures were set to meet with the issue of the Congress top of the agenda.
“As 2014 structures we are going to meet at our party office in Kwekwe. On top of the agenda will be the issue of the coming Extr Ordinary Congress,” Bhebhe said.
He added that the 2014 structures were going to participate at the incoming congress.
“We are going to participate in the November 30 Extraordinary congress to elect a substantive party leader. Therefore, the purpose of this meeting is to audit party structures,” he said.
He preached the gospel of unity.
“We were told there were two camps in our party that is going to be a thing of the past. We need to be united. What we are simply doing is to respond to the Supreme Court ruling which allows us to take part in the Congress,” he said.
He added that the party faithfuls were ready to support anyone who was going to win at the congress.
” Everyone who was part of the 2014 structures is allowed to contest for the presidency if they so wish. And we will not only vote but also support whoever, is going to win,” he said.
