Acting Chairperson of the MDC-T Guardian Council, Sekai Holland has assumed leadership of the MDC Renewal Team as interim president until the party's next congress.

Holland said the MDC-T, which is currently in disarray, requires a return to the founding principles of the party, accusing founder leader Morgan Tsvangirai of the current divisions in the party and for making the party a personal property.

Holland said in line with the resolution by the National Council at Mandel Training Centre early this year, she is assuming the role of the interim party president and will work towards establishing systems for the survival of the party.

"The renewal team is where those who still adhere to the original values and principles of the party are. I therefore on this occasion officially assume the role of interim party president," she said.

Mrs Holland bemoaned the repeated tailor-making of the constitution to suit the personal needs of Tsvangirai, the use of violence as a means to control, abuse of party finances and persistent leadership failures.

Meanwhile, Zanu PF Secretary for Information and Publicity, Rugare Gumbo has described Tsvangirai's recent calls for people to rebel against an elected government as grandstanding.

"Tsvangirai's speech is a non-event and an act of grandstanding. We are making efforts to revitalise the economy through the massive economic deals we have sealed with our partners, yet others want to destabilise the country," said Gumbo.

The MDC-T is currently working on amendments to the constitution in a process being spearheaded by the Constitutional Review Committee.

The party is however divided on the constitutional review process with some sections against the centralisation of power in the hands of Tsvangirai.

party iya yataichemera zvino yaita mamvemve. Do not centralise power on Morgen give secretary general all his powers. And the idea of not allowing secretary to stand for any other posions is bull shit. Ingori nyaya yekuda kurambidza Chamisa nemamwe maMP kukondesta popinda varanda vako vaunoitisa zvavanoda

Feel pity for the greedy, indecisive and philandering Morgan once touted the saviour of the people. Of coz we once beleived such rubbish but time has been very cruel on him. It has exposed him for who he really his; a poor fellow who thought that the western donours literally feed from his has had, a guy who thought that the MDC is his personal tuckshop from which he can withdraw money at will to finance his sexapedes. Every one has now gone. His confidantes have gone, the west have gone; the supporters have gone, the guardian council has gone and the poor party's coffers are dry. And in his small warped mind everyone else is wrong save for him and his Zanu wife and a bunch of bootlickers who themselves dont like the fella but are eyeing positions of authority in the struggling party. So long Morgan. It has been nice doing business with you. Adious!

With all this confusion going on in opposition parties , the future of this country is in limbo. With a ruling party that has reversed the gains of independence , the future of our children looks bleak. With a certain family that has practically turned the country into their own , we are doomed. Our aspirations for a better and prosperous nation are fast becoming an illusion. I cry for my country as labour in foreign lands hoping that one day a true hero of the people will emerge like the biblical Moses.
