MDC A deputy chairperson Tendai Biti has said only Nelson Chamisa has the capacity to lead the opposition party.Speaking to Daily News, Biti reacted to suggestions by Zanu-PF youth league leader Lewis Matutu that Douglas Mwonzora would beat the current leader, Nelson Chamisa at the opposition party’s Congress scheduled for May 24-26.
He said the party would not accept to be led by “a ruling party chosen half-wit”.
Biti has maintained the MDC A will reject any person who is not Chamisa. Said Biti:
“We will reject any nincompoop given to us by Zanu PF. We already have a candidate in … Chamisa. So, we will not tolerate that. Our duty is to protect the legacy of our dear leader Morgan Tsvangirai and we know with Chamisa we will be able to do that.”
The MDC youth assembly has also claimed that Zanu PF wants a “weaker candidate” to emerge as the party’s leader in May “for obvious reasons” — vowing that this will not happen
