The Harare province has vowed its allegiance to Mwonzora amidst tension in the party. The tension was caused by Mwonzora when he announced the suspension of the Vice President.
In response, Khupe held a press conference in Bulawayo where she said she was now the head of the party claiming that Mwonzora had expelled himself from the party by claiming that he was the leader of the MDC Alliance. Amidst this tension, the Harare province has pledged its allegiance to the Mwonzora faction.
A Statement issued by Fungai Chiposi reads :
The MDC-T Harare Province led by Chairman Zivai Mhetu would like to put on record that it stands resolutely and unequivocally with the elected and legitimate President of the MDC-T as well as leader of the MDC Alliance, Douglas T. Mwonzora.
The province hereby dismisses the so-called statements by suspended Vice President Thokozani Khupe alleging that there is a split in the party. The wishes of a few misguided imposters gathered from opposing political parties will never be the voice of the majority of MDC-T family.
Further, Harare Province stands with the decision of President Mwonzora to suspend Thokozani Khupe. Ever since the conclusion of our successful Extraordinary Congress, the Province noted numerous provocations instigated by the former Vice President and efforts to disrupt the rebuilding exercise being driven by our beloved movement and President.
Harare Province remains committed behind President Mwonzora. As such we are completing Primary Elections for by-elections as well as finalising preparation for our party 5th Ordinary Congress scheduled for 5 March 2022. Victory is certain.Fungai Chiposi, MDC-T Harare Province Secretary for information and Publicity.
