THE interim leadership of the MDC has been thrown into fresh turmoil after party youths assaulted acting leader Thokozani Khupe’s aide and some party workers in Harare on Monday, the Daily News reports.
“Team Mwonzora is blocking all party members who have shown their support for other leaders from entering Harvest House (MRT).“On Monday, they attacked a presidential aide, Fatso. On Sunday, they also assaulted some party members who had been sent to clean the president’s (Khupe’s) office.“This is being done by the youths who took over the national offices from the MDC Alliance,” one of the insiders claimed.
“The matter will be thoroughly investigated and if it is found to be true, those behind the assaults will be brought to book because we want to build a party anchored on constitutionalism and tolerance. We cannot condon violence,” he said.
All this comes as Khupe and Chamisa have been involved in an ugly brawl for the control of the party ever since the death of Tsvangirai from colon cancer in February 2018.
