New Pressure Is Being Put On Mwonzora To Resign

Douglas Mwonzora, president of the MDC-T, is allegedly facing increased pressure from his colleagues to resign.

Mwonzora is charged with violating the party constitution, stealing money, and socializing with ZANU PF while undermining the once-opposition movement.

Additionally, he is charged with appointing his supporters to crucial positions in order to strengthen his hold on power while failing to announce a date for the party’s long overdue election congress.

According to sources cited by the NewsHawks, people associated with Mwonzora want the standing committee so they may use it as a platform to prevent the congress from taking place until the party reorganizes its structures.

Branch congresses were scheduled on May 28 and 29, and district congresses were scheduled for May 30, according to a roadmap created by the party for the congress.

Provincial congresses, including those of exterior provinces, were slated for June 6–11, with a national council meeting on June 17 and other events leading up to the congress on July 23–24.

However, none of the congresses have yet been conducted despite reports that Mwonzora and his group of supporters oppose convening an election congress. A party insider said:

His pact with ZANU PF is haunting him. His handling of finances is not transparent and he has failed to finance party projects in the provinces.

He attacks opposition other than ZANU PF and people feel he has betrayed the struggle and people no longer want him.

He attacks Chamisa as a person not adhering to the constitution, but he is doing exactly that.

According to reports, MDC-T vice president Elias Mudzuri, national chairperson Komichi, and businessman Norest Marara are interested in succeeding Mwonzora as party leader.

Mwonzora is said to have lost favor with the movement after the MDC-T, now known as the MDC Alliance, did poorly in the by-elections on March 26.
