Rival Faction Wants Nelson Chamisa Arrested For Violence At Morgan Tsvangirai's Funeral

A rival faction in the opposition MDC-T party is reported to be plotting to have acting president Nelson Chamisa arrested. The faction is said to be alleging that Chamisa was involved in the political violence that marred Morgan Tsvangirai’s burial in Buhera, where MDC-T vice-president Thokozani Khupe and secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora were threatened with violence and had to seek police protection at one point.  This comes at a time when the MDC-T’s three vice presidents Thokozani Khupe, Elias Mudzuri and Nelson Chamisa are battling to succeed Morgan Tsvangirai.

Official who spoke to the state-owned newspaper, the Sunday Mail, said

Chamisa’s hunger for power is amazing. He could not wait for our president to be buried. But this time, we are going to find a solution to deal with him that may catch him by surprise.

You could soon see him being called by the police to explain what happened in Buhera. The matter cannot simply end like this and yet some hired thugs tried to burn down a house in which three very senior party officials had retreated to when faced with assault.

…There is a lot going on and many people are not happy with the manner that he is acting. He is now appearing like a dictator. At public functions, he does not allow anyone else to speak because he wants all the glory to be accorded to him.

When contacted for a comment, Chamisa dismissed the matter as being trivial, saying,

Those are petty issues. I don’t comment on those issues. Get in touch with (director of communications in the MDC-T president’s office) Luke (Tamborinyoka) or (MDC-T secretary for security) Giles Mutsekwa.
