Splinter Dr Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T Deputy President Obert Gutu reports that the mainstream MDC-T led by advocate Nelson Chamisa has withdrawn from the High Court roll the matter against leaders of the splinter group on the use of the MDC-T name.
According to Gutu, the withdrawal makes the Khupe led splinter the genuine MDC-T which Chamisa was contesting.
Gutu wrote on his Twitter handle on Monday shortly after the court sitting.
Our erstwhile comrades,have this morning i.e.Monday.July 02,2018, applied to have their matter against Thokozani Khupe, Obert Gutu and Abednico Bhebhe removed from the High Court roll. The matter was heard before Honourable Justice Dube in chambers.
Our lead Counsel, Professor Lovemore Madhuku, consented to the matter being removed from the roll with costs being in the cause, because, essentially, our erstwhile comrades have thrown in the towel and realized that their case against the three (3) of us was ill-advised and unwinnable. Our erstwhile comrades were represented by Advocate Thabani Mpofu.
What this essentially means is that the MDC-T led by Hon Dr.Thokozani Khupe continues as the legitimate and lawful MDC-T.
