MDC-T's 'bhora musango' moment

Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) Bulawayo Provincial Chairman, Gift Banda, and his Provincial Administrative Committee have declared that they "are 100% behind Acting President Advocate Nelson Chamisa in line with the National Council resolution that he takes over the reins following the untimely passing of the late President Morgan Richard Tsvangirai."

The declaration comes after Dr Khupe declared that she does not recognise the National Council's appointment of Chamisa as the party's Acting President.

Dr Khupe's faction is alleged to have rallied Western ambassadors against the Chamisa and to have portrayed him as a coup leader. However some analysts claim that, Dr Khupe's faction will not say that they were evicted from the MDC-T offices in Bulawayo after violently seizing it on 4 March 2018. They will also not reveal that MDC-T National Organising Secretary Abednigo Bhebhe called for a bhora musango (electoral sabotage) at an Ibhetshu Likazulu meeting in Bulawayo on 2 March 2018. As if this was not enough, Norman Mpofu, a former legislator and staunch supporter of MDC-T Vice President, Dr Thokozani Khupe, posed a rhetorical question: "After the Buhera debacle where not only Thokozani (Khupe) was insulted and threatened but the entire Mthwakazi members … should we allow Chamisa to come address Mthwakazi at Plumtree?"
