MDC officials have revealed that severalķ party provinces had already endorsed their youthful leader Nelson Chamisa as their 2023 presidential election candidate ahead of the opposition’s May congress.
The MDC stalwarts are reportedly arguing that there is no need to “change the commander in the middle of a battle”.
This was revealed by MDC vice-president Morgen Komichi, deputy chair Tendai Biti and national organising secretary Amos Chibaya following a consultative rally held in Chinhoyi yesterday.
In his address, Biti accused the ruling Zanu PF of infiltrating the opposition structures and sponsoring some top executives to challenge Chamisa at the opposition party’s elective congress.
“Zanu PF is trying to influence the MDC congress in May, but we are not fools who can change the commander in the middle of a battle.”
