Khupe confronts "unapproachable" Tsvangirai, worried about "centralisation of power in one person"

MDC-T vice president Thokozani Khupe has written a letter to party President Morgan Tsvangirai accusing him of being unapproachable and “unilaterally” signing the MDC Alliance deal. Khupe argues that the deal is not good for the MDC-T as the party was giving away a good portion of its seats in its strongholds. Part of the letter reads:


We write this memorandum to reiterate our concerns about the MDC Alliance co-operation agreement you signed with other alliance partners on August 5, 2017 . . .

We are, however, concerned about the seemingly centralisation of power in one person, and method that was employed, which gave birth to the alliance agreement, which is fraught with inconsistencies, as we were never consulted regarding the substantive contents of the alliance agreement.

….More specifically, we are concerned about the formula or method that has been used to come up with the distribution. Precisely, because mathematically, the party has given away 45,7% of the parliamentary seats and remained with 54%.

Our concern is that even if the party is to win all the contested seats, it may not achieve outright majority presidential victory.
