MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora was grilled by party members on his plans if given a second mandate to run the office, with some party members accusing him of being involved in the double nomination of candidates.

But Mwonzora brushed aside the accusations and vowed to stay loyal to party leader Nelson Chamisa, and ensure the party will never split.

"What is important is the relationship between the president and secretary-general. If I am not happy, I go to the office of the president. We are close to each other and deal with the disputes," he said.

"That's why I have been secretary-general under our late icon Morgan Tsvangirai. There was no split, I have been secretary-general under our president Chamisa, there was no split and there will be no split because we know how to deal with disputes in a mature way."

Party members also accused Mwonzora of having a hand in the recent High Court judgment which declared Chamisa as an illegitimate party leader.

"Zanu-PF killed our people, killed our industries and our economy, we have to remove this government. That is our main objective," Mwonzora said.
