MDC Veterans Back Chamisa, Reject Mwonzora

A group calling itself the MDC Veteran Activists Association (VAA) on Tuesday vowed to support MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa, saying the former ICT minister was the one carrying forward the late Morgan Tsvangirai’s vision.

In a statement yesterday, VAA leader Felix Magalela Mafa Sibanda distanced the grouping from Gideon Mangena, who had spoken in support of MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora. Said Sibanda:

We want to make it clear without any equivocation or ambiguity that (Morgan) Tsvangirai’s legacy of servant leadership, courage and indefatigable resistance in the face of brutal repression, service and self-sacrifice, the iconic leader of democracy and egalitarianism can only be realised under the leadership of Chamisa and his entourage.

As such, we want to rest assured genuine veterans of the democratic struggle that we are not part and parcel of Gideon Mangena’s group that has salivated at Mwonzora’s poisoned carrot to the extent of congratulating him for the so-called presidential ascent of MDC-T.

Mwonzora was elected MDC-T president at a chaotic extraordinary congress (EOC) held at the end of December last year.

He won the race by a country mile ahead of Thokozani Khupe, who was then interim leaders Morgen Komichi and Elias Mudzuri. Another contestant, Abednico Bhebhe, was fired from the party a month before the EOC was held.
