Chin’ono urges Chamisa to form new, clean party

By Mutsa Makuvaza

JOURNALIST Hopewell Chin’ono has challenged MDC Alliance Nelson Chamisa to drop the MDC brand and form a new party saying the MDC Alliance has been heavily infiltrated by ruling Zanu-PF agents.

Chin’ono was speaking to an online TV run watched mostly by Zimbabweans in the diaspora when he said Chamisa would do well by forming a new political project untainted by the MDC which has seen infighting between rival factions fronted by former colleagues.

“What Nelson Chamisa and the MDC-A needs to do is to defend that vote, but more importantly, the MDC brand has been decimated so much that it is now associated with splits.

“So, Nelson Chamisa simply needs to rebrand, form a new party, go with those that have chosen to stand with the people that voted for him, and his political party and move on,” said the prominent journalist who is still smarting from a 40-day imprisonment on charges of plotting to unleash violence on President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government.

Chin’ono avers that the recent recalls of elected MDC Alliance officials by a rival factional leader Thokozani Khupe were enough evidence that Zanu-PF virtually controls the MDC-T.

“Recalls we have seen them, they have given Zimbabweans an opportunity to see who was genuine and who was not.

“The recalls [of MDC Alliance elected officials by the MDC-T] are a product of illegal and unconstitutional judgements. They are meant to decimate the opposition.

“Emmerson Mnangagwa is now running a puppet opposition movement led by Douglas Mwonzora, Thokozani Khupe, Morgen Komichi and Elias Mudzuri.

“There is nowhere in the world where in a normal democracy, people voted for the MDC Alliance then the MDC-T comes and says these are actually our votes,” Chin’ono said.

Chin’ono asserted that the opposition has been heavily infiltrated by regime agents even during the days of Morgan Tsvangirai and the challenges the party is facing today can be attributed to the work of moles within its ranks.

“The MDC has been infiltrated for a long time. I told Morgan Tsvangirai in front of (his then advisor) Alex Magaisa that James Maridadi was an infiltrator.

“Tsvangirai did not take that seriously, and as they say, the rest is history.” – Zimbabwe Voice
