By A Correspondent- Opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has weakened the vibrant and outspoken party’s Vice Chairman, Job Sikhala and appointed Sesel Zvidzai to the same position.
Zvidzai, a former Deputy Minister of Local Government and Urban Development, confirmed the appointment in a Facebook post on Friday. Read the post:
After two days pasting together the jigsaw puzzle for the change we all need. Change that will deliver for us all, the Zimbabwe family.
Happy to make my contribution in my newly appointed post of VC of the Party of excellence by President Chamisa
Chamisa also appointed pro-democracy human rights lawyer and legislator for Hwange Central Fortune Daniel Molokele as the new Deputy Treasurer-General. Molekele confirmed the appointment:
Confirmation of my Appointment …
I am so humbled to confirm that President Advocate Nelson Chamisa has appointed me as the new Deputy Treasurer General of the MDC Alliance with immediate effect. Thank you.
There have been mixed reactions to the appointments with some suggesting that the appointment of Zvidzai is a blow for Job’ Wiwa’ Sikhala who is the elected Vice-Chairperson.
Some said Chamisa was violating the party’s constitution as the holders of that office must the elected by the people.
