NOT even the High Court ruling could take the sting out of the MDC Congress, as the day the party holds its 5th Congress is just a few hours away.
MDC leader Nelson Chamisa says delegates have already started pouring in at the Congress venue in the Midlands city of Gweru.
This is despite that Maureen Tawengwa, who was a secretary for Gokwe Sesame under the 2014 structure, yesterday filed a High Court application through her lawyer, Ashel Mutungura, seeking an order to stop the MDC congress from going ahead.
“Delegates are arriving from all the corners of Zimbabwe. All roads lead to Gweru, Midlands this weekend for the MDC 5th National Congress. No matter what! Noma kanjani!,” Chamisa says, oblivious of the latest court application.
Chamisa’s lawyer, Advocate Thabani Mpofu, said he was yet to be served with the interdict papers.
“I don’t know anything about the application. I have not seen any papers,” he said.
Despite indicating that he would appeal against the Justice Mushore judgment, Chamisa is yet to do so.
The ruling, however, did not explicitly bar the MDC from holding the congress, which starts tomorrow with the election of youths and women’s assembly members for the main organs.
