Controversial Zimbabwean flip-flopping activist Gerald Mutumanje - also known as Acie Lumumba - has called MDC-T president Thokozani Khupe the useless "Mphoko of MDC."

In a no-holds-barred rant, Lumumba roasts Khupe over her fight with Nelson Chamisa, saying: "Thokozani hauna kana basa… It's not because you're Ndebele or you're a woman… It's just that hauna kana ma supporter. You are the Mphoko of MDC. No-one loves you as a politician…

"Vanhu ve MDC vakasarudza kuti vari kuda mukomana anonzi Chamisa. Pa fair chaipo chaipo Thokozani Khupe haun kana dhiri…"

Khupe has of late been ratcheting up pressure on Nelson Chamisa to vacate the Harvest House as well as surrender party assets following a High Court ruling which rendered Chamisa illegitimate.

The latest move by Khupe has seen her hiring prominent lawyer Lovemore Madhuku to implement the High Court ruling.

The recent judgement by High Court judge Edith Mushore further revoked late founding MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai's 2016 appointment of Chamisa and Elias Mudzuri as deputy presidents.

The ruling also ordered the MDC to return to its 2014 structures and conduct an extra-ordinary congress within the next one month to elect a party leadership as dictated by the constitution.

However, this is far not a favourable option for Chamisa followers who fear a return to the 2014 structures as dictated by the court will shift power to Mwonzora, famed for defeating Chamisa to the post of secretary general at the time.
