“I never wanted to part ways with Khupe”- Mwonzora

By Dylan Murambgi

MDC leader Douglas Mwonzora says he never wanted to part ways with Thokozani Khupe underscoring that circumstances left him with very limited options.

He made the remarks while addressing his handful party supporters at a rally held in Bulawayo.

He said when he won the elections, he tried to unify the party by embracing all contestants.

” I said Dr Khupe you should remain as vice president. I appointed Ellias Mudzuri as the second vice president and said to baba Morgan Komichi you should continue with your chairmanship,” he said.

“I was surprised on January 21 when a press conference was held saying they have split the party because the president has said he has joined the alliance. We then sat as national council and we said as MDC, our constitution does not have a split. And also there is no one who can become a president without going through congress, so if someone calls herself a president, they have left the party,” he added.

“It’s never something that we wanted, we wanted a united party, but as the president what could I have done. So, I am sorry that this had to happen. But what consoled me is that Bulawayo province wrote a letter saying they were not in agreement with what had happened, they said they didn’t want a split, as did all other provinces.”

Mwonzora is widely suspected to be the Zanu-pf political party functionary tasked with the responsibility to derail opposition party politics in Zimbabwe.
