By A Correspondent| The MDC Alliance Youth Assembly has defended party Secretary General Charlton Hwende following a Twitter war in which he is being accused of defending an Ad Hoc committee report that exonerated Bulawayo Women’s Assembly chairperson Tendai Masotsha of any wrongdoing in the abduction of Tawanda Muchehiwa by state security agents.

Hwende has come under fire from among others ZimLive Editor Mduduzi Mathuthu and Professor Jonathan Moyo who felt he was defending the party Ad Hoc committee which they said failed the nation by exonerating Masotsha.

Posting on his official Facebook page, MDC Alliance Youth Assembly Secretary General, Gift Ostallos Siziba defended Hwende saying, “Thank you Secretary General Charlton Hwende for the support you have given the youth assembly…”

Reached for a comment, Ostallos said as the vanguard of the party, they had a primary role to defend party leaders from unnecessary attacks which he said only served to derail the struggle for change in the country.

“What ever the case, we have the primary role to defend our leadership as they are a vital cog of the National Democratic Revolution, of which we are a vanguard to.”

“Our forces must remain focused, until victory,” said Ostallos.

Masotsha was exonerated of any wrong doing in the abduction of Muchehiwa by suspected state security agents in the run-up to 31 July anti-corruption protests.

The internal inquiry committee made up of Concilia Chinanzvavana, Jameson Timba and Kucaca Phulu concluded that there was no evidence that pointed to Masotsha’s involvement in Muchehiwa’s alleged abduction besides social media claims.
