Chamisa Eyes MDC 'Life Presidency'

MDC president Nelson Chamisa intends to be at the party’s helm for many years to come and does not want to be contested at the next Congress set to be held in 2024.

In his acceptance speech after getting the presidency unopposed during last weekend’s elective congress held in Gweru, Chamisa said;

I thank you for giving me 13 nominations. I think this is the trajectory that we should always have, giving the president a clear mandate, in the same manner, we used to give our late icon Tsvangirai a clear mandate.

We never went to Congress where he was contested, not even one. I hope you will give me that same hand.

Chamisa took over leadership of the MDC party soon after the death of founding president Morgan Tsvangirai in 2018.

His rise was not without controversy as he had to fight off rivals Thokozani Khupe and Elias Mudzuri who were also vice presidents.
