MDC leader Nelson Chamisa has created a bloated National Executive which is a concoction of four factions of the original MDC  and that is bound to cost Chamisa in the next elections a former MDC Youth leader  Shephard Dube has said.

In an MDC National Executive critique on Thursday Dube said, " Nelson Chamisa's national executive is bloated. It may cost him the next election. Too many people holding too much power on lower structures is a recipe for disaster. I thought as a Christian he would learn from Moses and Jesus. Moses had a core team of 10 and Jesus had 12. A lean team is always effective and has manageable conflicts."

On Thursday MDC announced a list of its NEC members and shadow cabinet. Former Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora a junior position while Morgan Komichi was made to lead the Office of the President.

Dube added that the creature created by Chamisa was a four headed monster which makes Chamisa a first among equals.

"MDC has become a 4 headed beast. Welshman Ncube led MDC-Green, Tendai Biti led MDC-Renewal, Job Sikhala led MDC-99 and Nelson Chamisa led MDC-T. Now they have formed MDC Alliance trading as MDC. Legally this is a Political Party but politically this remains nothing more than a Political Alliance.

"The outcomes of the Congress and NEC Appointments clearly indicate that balancing Alliance factions was far much more important than meritocracy. The difference between a Political Party and a Political Alliance is that the former is formed on the basis of ideology and the latter is formed to pursue common interests, in this case, the interest being survival.

"Chamisa has become merely a first amongst equals his major strength being a huge Grassroot following."
