“Only Tsvangirai must lead the coalition”-Chamisa

    By Mlondolozi Ndlovu

    Movement for Democratic Change Vice President Nelson Chamisa has shot down at any attempt by other opposition political parties to lead the much-envisaged coalition saying his party leader Morgan Tsvangirai had worked so much and that he was the only capable candidate to lead the coalition.

    Chamisa who recently travelled to Kenya to meet that country’s opposition leader Raila Odinga said Tsvangirai had shared notes with Orange Democratic Movement leader on how to deal with ‘electoral crooks’.

    Addressing party youths at a rally in Chitungwiza Chamisa claimed that they was no way Tsvangirai- the country’s longest serving opposition leader was going to lose the 2018 polls adding only him was fit to challenge 93-year-old Mugabe in next year’s polls.

    “What we know is that in 2018 whether the sun sets from the East or from the West, only president Tsvangirai will win. If he fails to win only one man will win- him,

    “It’s not possible not to win. Because when one goes into the bush to hunt for a long time they eventually get what they want. No one who has persevered like Tsvangirai will fail,” said the Kuwadzana legislator.

    In a thinly veiled attack on other opposition parties and their leaders, the MDC Vice President said they should just join his boss and stop fighting from their own corners.

    “We want you to be aware of other parties, that want to take the meat we have been hunting, beware of these.  All those that want to joining come and join, Mai Mujuru come and join, Biti come and follow save, Debengwa come and join Save, Mangoma come and join Save,” said Chamisa.

    These statements come days after the National People’s Party President Joice Mujuru joined the Coalition for Democrats a grouping of other opposition parties that have refused to be under Tsvangirai’s leadership.

    As the country prepares for next year’s general a number of political parties have been formed with calls for a coalition to unseat Zanu PF, however they are differences among the political parties on who should lead the coalition.
