'Chamisa is a Zanu-PF project'

The Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T has revealed that the main opposition party fronted by Nelson Chamisa is a Zanu-PF project whose agenda is to subvert the people's struggle.

Fierce succession fights rocked the opposition party since Morgan Tsvangirai's health condition took a nose dive in the past few weeks, culminating in his death last week.

Khupe and Chamisa have now completely failed to heal their rift, which emerged after the death of the party's founding leader, Morgan Tsvangirai - who lost his valiant battle against cancer of the colon on Valentine's Day in 2017.

The allegations are not new, former president Robert Mugabe's nephew Patrick Zhuwao also alleged that Chamisa was a Lacoste plant who was being used by the military.

Zhuwao, who has been in exile since his uncle fell from power, alleged that Chamisa was elevated to the MDC-T vice presidency at the behest of Zanu-PF political commissar Lieutenant-General (retired) Engelbert Rugeje.

Said Zhuwao in his weekly column, "The presence of Nelson Chamisa at the visit by Chiwenga and Mnangagwa raises the question on whether Chamisa has already been compromised by the coup conspirators and military junta. Chamisa was the only member of the MDC-T leadership who was at the meeting. The question of whether Chamisa is a Lacoste plant and mole in the MDC-T has consistently been gaining traction since the meeting between Tsvangirai, Komichi and Major General Rugeje where he pushed for the appointment of Chamisa as a Vice President in MDC-T.

"The coup conspirators and military junta want to influence succession within MDC-T by giving Chamisa the feeling that they can deliver the MDC-T Presidency to him. Chamisa would then be beholden to the coup conspirators and military junta such that he will deliver the MDC-T legislators to them for a constitutional amendment to postpone the elections.

Chamisa has always been allegedly working alongside Mnangagwa faction in Zanu-PF. He is reportedly been involved in haulage business involving Grace Mugabe.
