Thokozani Khupe

The Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T has inevitably called off its Extraordinary Congress set for Saturday to elect a new party leader purportedly to replace the late founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai.

The party advised its members that it is calling off the congress due to administrative issues.

Members of the party who were meant to be delegates at the congress on Friday mobilised against attending the Congress.

Below is a memorandum circulated to members in Matabeleland South against the congress. Similar notices were distributed in all the other provinces.




MAT SOUTH 2014 MDCT Extra Ordinary Congress (EOC) DELEGATES.

This memorandum serves to advise & update

ALL CONCERNED 2014 MDCT MAT SOUTH EOC DELEGATES, that they are strongly and strictly advised & indeed directed NOT TO TAKE PART in the MDCT EOC on 19 December 2020 that the several social media platforms are awash with.

This is a bogus and purely a ZANU-PF/MDC Rebels’ programme that real democrats MUST shun because:

  1. Mat South was not accorded a chance to exercise it’s democratic right to nominate it’s preferred Presidential candidate.
  2. Neither our MDCT Constitution has, nor our 2014 National Council has made a provision for decentralised National Congresses.
  3. The EOC is a Zanu PF project to archieve premaditated results that Zanu-PF will want to use to form bedroom GNU.
  4. Many Presidential aspirants were disenfranchised outside the dictates or the party constitution hence the law.
  5. The same scenario in (4 above) goes true for several delegates. Many have been fired without due processes being followed.
  6. The 2014 National Organising Secretary and his deputy in particular, have been unlawfully expelled from the party and yet there are the ones in charge of structures.
  7. The High Court of Zimbabwe has just interdicted the holding of this EOC until 2014 National Organiser Abedinico Bhebhe’s illegal and summarily expulsion is determined as per MDCT party constitution. We therefore expect the MDCT to abide by the same (Latest) High Court of Zimbabwe judgment if the MDCT is as democratic and constitutional as it claims to be or atleast as it should be.

That’s done & undersigned on behalf of ALL- 2014 MDC T MAT SOUTH AUNTHENTIC PROVINCIAL COUNCIL(EOC DELEGATES).
