MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai has decided against naming any of his three deputies to act on his behalf while he recovers from a recent ailment.

According to, to avoid a leadership vacuum in his party, Tsvangirai announced last Friday that his deputies Thokozani Khupe, Nelson Chamisa and Elias Mudzuri will be in charge of the party but only in their respective party portfolios.

"In the meantime, the three vice-presidents will continue to execute their assigned tasks to ensure consistent and uninterrupted leadership to the various party programmes currently taking place," Tsvangirai said through Tamborinyoka Friday.

Khupe is in charge of Admin and Women while Chamisa superintends over Policy, International Relations and Youth with Mudzuri head of Organising and Elections.

The opposition strongman was flown to South African over a week ago to receive treatment over a complaint linked to his colon cancer.
