MDC Internal Fights Benefit ZANU PF - Nyikadzino

MDC-T secretary-general Nixon Nyikadzino has called on warring MDC factions to bury the hatchet for the good of the country.

Nyikadzino was elected secretary-general of the party in Bulawayo in 2018 when the party, then led by Thokozani Khupe, held its congress.

However, a Supreme Court ruling in April nullified the original MDC-T National Council decision to appoint Nelson Chamisa party president following the death of Morgan Tsvangirai in 2018.

The apex court also ordered the party to revert to its 2014 structures, with Khupe as the acting president, pending an extraordinary congress. Khupe abandoned her political project, leaving the likes of Nyikadzino in the cold.

In an interview with NewsDay Senior Reporter Moses Matenga, Nyikadzino said the chaos within the MDC only benefits the ruling ZANU PF party. He said:

My heart bleeds as I see the opposition continuously being fragmented.

My honest take is that at some point we must converge to work together and use our different strengths for the good of our people.

More so, we must not conflict ourselves in knowing the difference between charisma and mediocrity.

Some leaders are there by chance or sympathy and yet others have it.

You can claim the name, members, money, property etc but it all boils down to your appeal to the real shareholders, the people.

If they do not like you like in this case, they will show you the way out at the ballot.

Some of us have come to terms with that reality and no wonder why we are prepared to go all the way and rebuild a party that was not really known but only its leadership who made names elsewhere before the formation of the party in 2018.

At the end of the day when two elephants fight it is the grass that suffers. Zanu PF is laughing all the way to the bank.

I am convinced that even this ruling and without taking anything from the learned judges have created confusion in the opposition society while Zanu PF enjoys the dance floor.
