Chamisa calls a crucial MDC National council meeting

The MDC national council, the party's supreme-decision-making body between Congresses, is meeting today to discuss the health of the party and the crisis affecting ordinary Zimbabweans, among a host of other issues.

Of concern to the party is the on-going onslaught against ordinary Zimbabweans, which has seen the arrest and harassment of innocent citizens, including the party's elected MPs.

Today's crucial meeting will also deliberate on the general health of the party, the current economic crisis and the dire plight of the ordinary people, who can barely eke out a living in the current tough economic conditions.

Some members are reportedly accusing party leader Nelson Chamisa of manipulating the structures in his favour and making it hard for his challengers to come out and openly campaign ahead of the congress.

Chamisa rose to power in February last year following the death of founding president Morgan Tsvangirai, who succumbed to cancer of the colon.

Today's national council meeting is meant to craft the congress roadmap.




Chamisa's challengers accused his lieutenants of tampering with structures and indirectly making it difficult for those reportedly outside his camp to freely open up and prepare for the elective congress.

This has forced disgruntled structures across the country to appeal to secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora to intervene.

Early this month, Mwonzora wrote to provincial secretaries and chairpersons to furnish him with structures so as to counter the alleged on-going manipulations.

"You are directed to submit copies of names of current members in all structures in your provinces to the secretary-general's office on or before February 4, 2019," the letter read.

"Make sure the information you submit is the same information in your organising department. Please be advised that in terms of article 9.5.1 (d) and (e), the secretary-general is the custodian of all important party documents, papers, records and contracts, as well as the membership list."
