MDC president Nelson Chamisa has appointed Welshman Ncube and Morgen Komichi as his co-deputies as he begins presiding over the much-anticipated MDC reunification process which also co-opted Tendai Biti as deputy national chair.

This was revealed by his spokesperson Nkululeko Sibanda at a press conference held at the Morgan Tsvangirai House this Tuesday.

"The following are the presidential appointments, deployments and redeployments," said Sibanda who was accompanied by new party spokesperson Jacob Mafume.

"Senator Elias Mudzuri remains vice president, Senator Morgen Komichi previously the chairperson of the party is now appointed vice president, Professor Welshman Ncube is appointed vice president, Senator Thabitha Khumalo has been deployed to become the national chairperson and honourable Tendai Biti has been appointed vice national chairperson. The secretary-general remains honourable Douglas Mwonzora."

The commonly known MDC-T also reverts back to its original MDC name which is not qualified by any affixation.

Said Sibanda, "The president is keen to let the country know that he is beginning the process of strengthening the party and to manage it along on the basis of his smart policy, in line with the need to prepare the party to reclaim the stolen victory.

"The president is also working hard to return the party to its original strength by integrating members of the MDC alliance into the MDC.

"The president is doing all this on the basis of the constitution and after meeting with the National Executive."
