MDC Officials Want Mwonzora Out

MDC officlas who spoke to the Daily News said some officials wanted the party’s secretary general Douglas Mwonzora out although they lacked the courage of their convictions to take him head on during the party’s national council meeting on Wednesday.

Said the source:

There were whispers calling for the head of Mwonzora and it was the president who actually silenced them, saying the party’s problems were not internal but external and called for unity among all. However, there is a strong feeling that Mwonzora should be relieved of his duties because he wants power and wants to remove the president. For now, he is in the party because Chamisa is holding the hounds back.

Contacted for comment, the Mwonzora said he was not the best person to comment on the issue. MDC national chairperson Morgen Komichi said they might have been whispers to that effect but the issue of Mwonzora was never formally raised. He denied that there were no divisions within the party. The Independent reports Mwonzora and Chamisa clashed during the national council meeting. Sources told The Independent that Mwonzora accused Chamisa of paying too much attention to gossip and misinformation from state security agents in a bid to expel him from the party ahead of the congress. Said the source:

Mwonzora was unusually forthright. He told the meeting that he had had enough. He accused Chamisa of sending people to harass him and he wasn’t going to take it anymore. At this point, Chamisa interjected saying Mwonzora was clearly working against him and he enjoyed support from Zanu-PF since he was recently endorsed by (Zanu PF politburo member and war veterans leader Victor) Matemadanda at a press conference.
