Chamisa To Have One VP Once In Power
MDC president Nelson Chamisa said that the party will maintain the current structure of having three vice presidents, but will have one once in power.
Chamisa revealed that three vice presidents will be elected at this week’s elective Congress set to be held in Gweru as a way of continuing with the legacy left by the late founding party president Morgan Tsvangirai: He said:
The issue of three vice-presidents is a legacy for our late president Mr Tsvangirai, with a trade union background. The party is different from the government.
The party can have as many leaders as possible, but in government, we will have a lean cabinet, with one vice-president on the basis of State resources.
I want you to know that none of the vice-presidents is paid any salaries by the party. It’s voluntary work.
Even the president is not paid. Not that I want a salary because my salary is a victory, if we have a victory, then my salary would have come.
