Senior MDC-Alliance leaders jump ship

Senior MDC-Alliance leaders jump ship
Published: 17 July 2018 (353 Views)
TWO senior MDC-Alliance officials in Masvingo Province have dumped the opposition outfit and joined Zanu-PF, citing lack of direction in the outfit fronted by Mr Nelson Chamisa.

The officials are Mr Tavengegwei Machingura, the MDC-T deputy provincial youth chairperson for Masvingo, and Mr Lovemore Machanja. Mr Machanja is a deputy youth chairman for Chivi District.

The pair attended a zanu-pf rally at Dare Primary School in Chivi South where they were introduced to the gathering by the ruling party's Masvingo provincial chairperson Ezra Chadzamira.

Mr Machingura said he joined Zanu-PF after his ancestors visited him in a dream and advised him to leave opposition politics.

"I was visited by my ancestors in a dream and they told me to join Zanu-PF. To those who knew me in this area, I was one of the founders of the party and I was walking side by side with Nelson Chamisa," said Mr Muchingura. Mr Machanja said there was darkness in the MDC-T and he wanted light.

"I have come back to Zanu-PF after realising that there is darkness in MDC-Alliance. I have not benefited anything in MDC-Alliance and have decided to be in the light in the Zanu-PF, a party which has a visionary leader in the person of President Mnangagwa."

Chadzamira said Zanu-PF was a home for everybody who wanted to rejoin the party.

"Zanu-PF is accommodating everyone and we are happy you have decided to come back home," said Chadzamira.

A number of MDC-T officials are not happy with Mr Chamisa's undemocratic leadership style. He grabbed the MDC-T leadership following the death of Mr Morgan Tsvangirai in February this year.
