MDC-T secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora says his efforts to get in touch with Nelson Chamisa to discuss the Supreme Court judgement have been fruitless as the MDC Alliance leader has not been picking his calls.
Mwonzora said there are some MDC Alliance members who are trying to influence Chamisa not to accept the court ruling as they fear they will lose positions after the extraordinary congress that was ordered by the court.
“I have made phone calls to him but I have not been able to talk to him ever since the judgement came out.
“Previously I have been able to talk to him but now I have not been able to talk to him. He is not picking my calls,” Mwonzora said.
He added that he only got to know of Chamisa’s reaction to the judgement through social media posts.
“I have been however made to understand his thinking regarding this case through what he has posted on social media
“My understanding is that he is in agreement with what Professor Welshman Ncube and Tendai Biti are saying, that we must defy the court order. That is wrong,” he said.
Chamisa wrote on Twitter on Wednesday saying politics is defined by numbers, not the courts.
