Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has given his strongest hint to date that he may be grooming his youngest deputy, Nelson Chamisa, to succeed him in the MDC-T – after he gave the youthful politician the crucial task of leading the party’s selection process of parliamentary and council candidates for the party’s selection process of parliamentary and council candidates for this year’s crunch elections.
This is part from Tsvangirai having also significantly chosen Chamisa to stand in for him and to handle all the party’s business within the MDC Alliance – as former prime minister in the government of national unity valiantly battles colon cancer.
Meanwhile, President Emmerson Mnangagwa ruled out another coalition with MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai shortly after visiting the ailing opposition leader at his Highlands home in Harare yesterday.
Pressed further on the question of a coalition, as there was a strong lobby for it, Mnangagwa insisted there would be none.
Since Mnangagwa’s rise to the presidency, there have been calls for a unity government, which many hope is the best way out of the economic crisis, but these have been dismissed by the ruling party.
Mnangagwa, with his deputy, Constantino Chiwenga, paid a largely unexpected visit to Tsvangirai, with pictures portraying an unwell MDC-T leader.
