MDC Alliance member and party leader, Welshman Ncube claims that Morgan Tsvangirai knew he was dying and appointed Nelson Chamisa his successor.

Ncube is MDC-T Vice President Thokozani Khupe’s nemesis.

He told the Standard that the former prime minister, Tsvangirai realised that he was losing the battle against colon cancer and chose Chamisa to take over from him after his eventual death. Ncube said:

“I got a call during that meeting from Tsvangirai asking me to visit him the following day at his home.

I went to his house; it was a Saturday… that meeting was emotionally draining.In his words, he said let us be realistic, I am losing this battle with cancer and I will not be with you for long.

He said he would not make it and would not be with us during the election campaigns, during elections… I kept telling him not to say such things or ever entertain such thoughts.

I asked how we would go about it when he was not around. He then said ‘I will give you Chamisa to lead the whole process’.

He asked me to assist Chamisa with this important task to give Zimbabweans another fighting chance in the elections, but I said I could not do that unless Chamisa was also told the same.

I called Chamisa and he came and joined us and Tsvangirai said the exact same thing to Chamisa that he had chosen him to lead the MDC-T and MDC Alliance in his absence.”

Chamisa was eventually appointed the party’s acting president of the party. Read more in The Standard report.
