Reinstated Secretary-General of the opposition Movement for Democratic (MDC) party, Senator Douglas Mwonzora has reportedly been involved in a minor road accident along Lomagundi road.

Reports suggest that Mwonzora got hit by a petrol tanker.
MDC Alliance bigwigs have been threatening Morgen Komichi and Douglas Mwonzora whom they have described as sell-outs who were due to be flushed out of the feuding political organisation.

The two invited strong resentment from their colleagues when they openly celebrated last Tuesday's Supreme Court ruling declaring MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa's leadership as illegitimate.

In its ruling, the court found Chamisa had violated the main opposition's constitution when he rose to the helm of the party following the death of founding MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai February 2018.

The court also ordered the party to restore its executive elected in 2014 and to convene an extra-ordinary congress to find a new party executive within three months of the ruling.

A defiant Komichi, elected then MDC-T deputy chair in 2014, has lost no time in marking his territory while Mwonzora is claiming his job of party secretary general.
