MDC youths appeared fed up with the factional wars in the main opposition after they seized the iconic Harvest House before vowing to force dialogue between Thokozani Khupe and Nelson Chamisa. The youths said the action was meant to save the party from collapse as its leaders' bloodletting escalates.  

The opposition youths are demanding urgent national council and national executive meetings to help interpret the Supreme Court ruling of March 30 and chart the way forward.

Former MP for Highfield West Happymore Chidziva said that youths from the factions were fed up and had decided to force dialogue using 2014 structures.

MDC Harare provincial youth leader Paul Gorekore said the move to takeover the party headquarters was meant to unite the leadership and save the party from being hijacked by Zanu-PF.  

Gorekore accused acting SG of making illegal decisions without consulting party structures and of working closely with Zanu-PF, police and the military while blocking Khupe allies from entering the party offices.

On March 31, the Supreme Court declared that Nelson Chamisa's leadership of the MDC was illegitimate and placed Khupe in temporary charge. It also ordered the party to hold an extraordinary congress within three months.
