Nelson Chamisa, the Movement for Democratic Change Alliance leader, has cited alleged threats on his life as the main reason he has not been too keen to reveal his movements.

According to, he said this at late party official Tafadzwa Mhundwa's funeral wake in Harare on Wednesday.

"After we ended our programme in Bulawayo," Chamisa said, "I told Mr (Morgen) Komichi that we were now leaving for Harare to which he told me that he does not travel at night. I maintained that I will be travelling at night and told him to rest.

"My travelling at night has a reason, when we travel, we do not publicise it because we are always in danger. We are swimming in a river full of crocodiles."

Chamisa added in a sarcastic apparent reference to arch-rival President Emmerson Mnangagwa whose moniker is crocodile, "When you are swimming amongst crocodiles, you have to make sure that they will only see you when you have crossed the river and are on the other side."

The MDC leader also said his place of residence was a secret with only a few trusted friends in the know.
