Fed up youths take MDC lead… but jury is out whether taking matters into their own hands will stem party chaos
On his part, MDC Harare provincial youth leader, Paul Gorekore, said they had taken over the symbolic party headquarters to unite the leadership and save the party from being hijacked by Zanu PF.
“We as the youths of the party as per 2014 structures, have decided to go beyond our differences and unite to resolve the current crisis,” Gorekore said further.
“We are going to take our property back today. They came and overpowered the guards at MRT House yesterday (Sunday), and they are still holding some of them hostage.
“The problem is that the leaders at this moment are thinking with their hearts instead of their heads. They are using their sentimental attachment to the name but are only damaging their morale and confidence.
