Recently Zanu PF has been on the crusade of arresting MDC Alliance leaders in Masvingo who include MDC Alliance National youth organiser Godfrey Kuraone, MDC Alliance National acting women assembly chairlady honourable Mugidho and other 9 MDC Alliance Chiredzi West leaders on false charges.
Political analyst Kimberely Tariro Mamhende said, “Zanu PF is using intimidating tactics such as arresting political opponents such Godfrey Kuraone, Jacob Ngarivhume, Mrs Mugidho among other. This is satanic and uncalled for in mature democracy.”
Senator Marava, encouraged MDC Alliance members not to join MDC T party led by Khupe. He argued that MDC T led by Khupe is Zanu PF proxy employed by Zanu PF to destroy MDC Alliance.
On the other related story, MDC T presidential hopeful at the forthcoming extraordinary congress Senator Elias Mudzuri was rejected in Chivi South.
Mr Wiseman Damba former Chivi North MDC Alliance district treasurer led Mudzuri faction in failed campaign in Chivi South.
On source in Mwonzora faction that is contesting for presidency in MDC T said, “We successfully blocked some 2014 Chivi South delegates to attend Mudzuri factional meeting aimed at campaigning for Mudzuri as MDC T president. Mudzuri is trying to use “wezhira” tribal card to win Masvingo support. We are happy people took heed to our call to snub Mudzuri meeting in Chivi South.”
There is growing infighting in MDC T led by court appointed president Khupe.
MDC T presidential hopefuls Mwonzora, Komichi, Khupe and Mudzuri supporters have been engaged in both verbal and physical fights as extraordinary congress dates are drawing nearer.
In Masvingo, there 3 MDC T camps that are visible: Mwonzora, Komichi and Mudzuri factions.
Khupe faction is non-existing in Masvingo.
However, all these three MDC T factions have few 2014 members who are allowed to vote at extraordinary congress as directed by supreme court.
