I DON’T OWE MWONZORA ANY FAVOURS
Chalton Hwende who is challenging Douglas Mwonzora for the MDC secretary-general post says he does not owe him any favours.
For the record, Mwonzora did not step down from challenging Chamisa for the post of party president. The truth of the matter is that Mwonzora failed to get any nomination for the post of president while Chamisa garnered 13 out of 13 nominations from the party’s provinces. Mwonzora did not do Chamisa favour at all and nobody owes him a favour in return, he said.
Hwende said when he takes over from Mwonzora after the congress he will reform the secretary-general’s office from being a centre of power to a centre of administration.
“In terms of the MDC constitution, the secretary-general is not the leader of the party. The leader of the party is the president of the party. The secretary-general is a subordinate of the president. Unfortunately, successive secretaries-general of the MDC have refused to acknowledge this constitutional reality and it has caused major conflicts and divisions in the party.
Under my stewardship, the office of the secretary-general will not compete with the office of the president because it is not only wrong but also retrogressive. The secretary-general should complement and not compete with the president of the party. Unbridled ambition and disloyalty have also been a source of conflict in the party.
The MDC splits in 2005 and 2014 were spearheaded by sitting secretaries-general of the time.
This will not happen during my tenure.”
