Tsvangirai beats Biti


The drama in the Movement for Democratic Change continued today with Judge Happias Zhou granting an interim order to stop the Renewal Team from hauling Morgan Tsvangirai for a hearing on at least 17 counts including violating the party constitution. The Tsvangirai faction hailed this is a major victory with organising secretary Nelson Chamisa saying: “It’s a blow to Biti because they had wanted to proceed with their muppet show and portray as if they have some form of political muscle and legitimacy but the court has clearly said they have no legs to stand on. And our hope is that they don’t lose their mind as we go forward.” Judge Zhou said he had blocked the hearing pending the finalisation of the case brought to the High Court by Tsvangirai in which the MDC leader is seeking to have the resolutions passed by the Biti faction at Mandel Training Centre nullified. He also wants to be declared the legal custodian of all party assets including the party headquarters at Harvest House and 120 vehicles.
