By A Corresppondent- The MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe is having its Standing Committee meeting as well as a press conference today at the Harvest House in Harare, just a week after evicting the rival MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa from the building associated with Zimbabwe’s fight against Zanu-PF rule.

In a statement inviting the media, the party said security would be tight. The heightened security measures are in light of fears that youths aligned to the dislodged MDC Alliance camp might seek to launch a strike back said a source affiliated to the Mwonzora camp.

When youths aligned to the Khupe camp seized control of the Harvest House on the 4th of this month, MDC-T Secretary-General Douglas Mwonzora advised that all future meetings would be held at the building which is the citadel of opposition politics in Zimbabwe.

Said Mwonzora in the short notice addressed to the party’s National Council on 4th June:

“The party wishes to advise that following communication sent by the acting President Dr. T Khupe to Advocate Nelson Chamisa, the latter has today (last night) through party officials allowed for a peaceful handover takeover of control of the Morgan Tsvangirai House (Harvest House).”
