Chamisa Accused Of Being Behind Mwonzora Booing
A source who spoke to NewZimbabwe.com accused MDC leader Nelson Chamisa of being behind Douglas Mwonzora’s booing at a party rally in Mutare.
This is despite the fact that Chamisa intervening and threatening to leave the rally if Mwonzora was not allowed to address the crowd. Mwonzora’s supporters argue this was Chamisa’s way of trying to manage his rival. The source said:
It was a sinister move with Chamisa’s fingerprints all over. Three bus-loads of people who booed Mwonzora were transported from Chitungwiza by known people. Mwonzora does not normally address these rallies but after realising the secretary general had been warmly received during introductions, someone realised the moment had been missed. That’s when the plan to get him to address the crowd came.
However, Chamisa’s spokesperson, Nkululeko Sibanda dismissed the suggestion that the MDC leader had anything to do with the incident. Said Sibanda:
Our president does not need a hired crowd. If anything, he does not have the money to do that. Chamisa is on the ascendency and any challenge on his candidacy will only work to diminish his standing not necessarily to defeat him. It’s a Zanu PF project
