The MDC youth assembly has categorically stated that they will not fold hands while the Zanu PF regime attempts to use the courts to destabilize the movement.

MDC youth assembly in a statement said the regime wants to use use the Supreme Court judgement to destabilize the party by parroting an idea that a judgement will be issued to choose a new leadership for the MDC.

"There are those, for reasons best known to themselves, who believe that such a time will come when the Zanu PF courts will foist a leadership on us. Never," the youth said.

"On cheap corruption allegations against the party, this is a fabricated narrative to divert us from the real crisis affecting the people of Zimbabwe. Their intention is to equalize our party the MDC with Zanu, whose corrupt oligarchy have stashed loot worth a whopping US$7 billion outside the country, according to the ZACC."

"We therefore state as follows: the Movement for Democratic Change gathered in Gweru on the 26th of May 2019 at our 5th national congress elected a leadership whose outcome is a matter and fact of public knowledge. No leader of this great movement will emerge from the court! "

The youth said Nelson Chamisa their president is not a signatory to any party account.

"This is a task constitutionally mandated to the Secretary General and the Treasurer General who are signatories and anything related to party funds shall be unveiled in the audit report," said the youth.

"The people must know that this is a hatchet job to malign and besmirch the character and image of our leadership. Those who in their infinite wisdom, or lack of it thereof, are wont to believe that there is or there can be another leadership outside that of President Chamisa and his team are day-dreaming."

The youth said as the vanguard of the party, whose key values are justice, freedom and solidarity, we respect anyone's freedom to lead the movement, but only through a democratic process as the one we conducted in Gweru.

"Those imagining themselves at 44 Nelson Mandela without the popular mandate of the people must wake up from their slumber. We will not allow such shenanigans. Our focus is and shall be on taking the fight to the doorstep of this callous, brutal and ruthless regime. Our sole intention being to transform the concrete realities of our people," said the youth.
