President of the recently formed opposition party LEAD, Linda Masarira, has mocked fellow opposition politician Nelson Chamisa after the High Court on Wednesday delivered a ruling that Chamisa’s presidency of the MDC was illegitimate.
“He legitimacy what not what not. The legitimate has been ruled the illegitimate. Karma karma karma… Operation Restore Legitimacy. Oh what a wonderful way to start my Wednesday,” Masarira said.
Masarira, who has oftentimes received attacks on social media from perceived MDC supporters, said she was not commenting as a politician, but as an ordinary member of the society.
Court Judge Justice Esther Muremba has ruled that MDC leader Nelson Chamisa’s appointment as vice president by Morgan Tsvangirai was illegal.
The High Court has also ruled that Chamisa’s subsequent assumption of the MDC presidency following Tsvangirai death was unconstitutional, and has ordered the party to hold extraordinary congress within a month to elect a legitimate leader.
