MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai has been told to make his succession plans known as it is key for a winning presidential campaign.
This statement was made by prominent lawyer and Mt Pleasant house of assembly aspirant Fadzayi Mahere after MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu refuted claims that Tsvangirai will soon resign from the party’s presidency.
In his New year’s message published by various media in Zimbabwe, Tsvangirai hinted that he would hand over power to a youthful leader.
Chamisa was reportedly being groomed for the top post.
“Maybe Tsvangirai should speak directly to the people and make his plans known explicitly,” tweeted Mahere.
“A clear message on who is running and a strong vision are vital for a winning Presidential campaign. As things stand, we have neither.”
MDC-T has merged with various political parties under the banner MDC Alliance aimed at unseating the ruling party in the forthcoming elections.
However, these efforts might be offset by the current squabbles and succession challenges that haunted Zanu PF and led to the ouster of former President Robert Mugabe.
