Douglas Mwonzora the new Secretary-General of the opposition MDC-T has said that after the death of the party’s founding leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, he advised leaders they should hold an extraordinary congress, as per the party constitution, to elect a new leader but his advice was rejected.
He said that if others decide not to attend the extraordinary congress that the Supreme Court ordered, it will be their own funeral as those present will make decisions on their behalf.
Responding to whether he and Komichi are likely to be recalled from senate for participating in 2018 on the ticket of the MDC Alliance, he said that they will not be recalled since they participated in the elections as members of the MDC in the MDC Alliance.
He added that there are some people who are not members of the MDCdo not qualify for the Congress and they are the ones advising Nelson Chamisa to boycott the Congress.
Tendai Biti, Jacob Mafume and Welshman Ncube joined the MDC Alliance through their parties, in that order, MDC Renewal and MDC-(Ncube).
