MDC former Chairman Morgen Komichi has a vendetta against Nelson Chamisa because the late MDC President Morgan Tsvangirai did not appoint him Vice President in 2016.

The revelations were made by the party's Deputy  Spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka on Friday.

Said Tamborinyoka, "Komichi's only frailty that I ever knew was that of ambition, which explains why he was so desperate to be Vice President and sulked when the late icon passed him over for Elias Mudzuri and Nelson Chamisa for appointment to the position."

He narrated how Tsvangirai confided in them that Komichi cried when he heard that he wont be appointed Vice President.

"He was here and he slumped in that couch over there, dripping in tears and sulking: complaining that for all his loyalty, I was passing him over. I told him that if loyalty was my only factor of consideration, it would have been a very difficult choice as there are millions out there who have always been loyal to me since I began this political journey," Tsvangirai is quoted to have said.

Tamborinyoka added that Komichi had betrayed his human judgment because he always held him in high esteem.  

"Morgen Komichi betrayed my mortal, human judgment. I always presumed him to be better than that, notwithstanding his unwavering faith in prophets and n'angas. For me, has always been a man of unstinting loyalty and principled service to the democratic struggle, the godfather of the party's peaceful and non-violent democratic resistance campaign.

"Komichi is the man with whom I spent three months in the D-class section of a notorious prison after several days of brutal assaults and torture.That is why in the National Standing Committee meeting of 10 March 2020, the majority of us were prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt. After what he has gone through in this struggle, it was always difficult to believe Komichi would fall for Zanu PF trinkets. Maybe they are right when they say every man has a price!"
