Battle for succession in MDC: What is more important, what Tsvangirai said or what the party constitution says?


The late Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s spokesman Luke Tamborinyoka has promised to release an audio of what Tsvangirai said about who should succeed him.

From the tone of Tamborinyoka’s opinion piece, this is obviously Nelson Chamisa who was appointed by the party’s national council to act for a year within hours of Tsvangirai’s death.

Tamborinyoka even wrote: “That revelation will put paid to any doubts about the satisfaction of Tsvangirai’s spirit at what is about to unravel.”

But as the battle to succeed Tsvangirai rages on with Thokozani Khupe, the only elected vice-president, insisting that she should be holding the mantle, people should be asking: What is more important- what Tsvangirai said or preferred; or what the party constitution says?
