MDC-T Youths Hand Over Harvest House To MDC Alliance
60 youths linked to the Nelson Chamisa MDC Alliance (MDC-A) occupied the Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House, formerly Harvest House, on Sunday night with the help of some MDC-T youths.
The building was seized by the Supreme Court-reconstructed MDC-T four months ago with the help of soldiers.
The MDC-A youths told ZimLive by phone that they had resolved their differences with a section of the youth leadership loyal to MDC-T leader Thokozani Khupe.
Paul Gorekore, the MDC-T’s current youth chairman for Harare province, is believed to have facilitated the latest occupation of the building, accusing MDC-T interim leader Thokozani Khupe of aiding the suffering of the masses by collaborating with the ruling ZANU PF. In a brief statement, Gorekore said:
MDC-T Harare province (2014 structures) has taken over control of the party HQ tonight. This has been necessitated by our realisation of the need to unite the people in the fight for a better Zimbabwe.
We as the youths have decided to go beyond our differences and unite to resolve the current crisis.
We have been concerned by recent developments where the party (MDC-T) has been infiltrated by some ZANU PF elements battling to destroy the people’s movement thereby aiding the suffering of the masses.
MDC Alliance youth chairman for Harare Denford Ngadziore is understood to have also entered Harvest House and will address a virtual news conference at 10 AM on Monday.
