Nelson Chamisa, a leader in the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has hinted that he will fight Mnangagwa’s ZANU PF to restore “everything the nation was robbed of.”
Chamisa’s remarks come when the MDC’s reinstated leader Thokozani Khupe recently recalled some members of the party, those reportedly aligned to Chamisa, from Parliament.
Chamisa’s supporters claim that Khupe and her associates are being used by ZANU PF to destabilise the opposition party. Posting on Twitter, the youthful leader said:
- You can’t rob people forever.
- You robbed the 2018 vote.
- First, you abused ZEC & robbed.
- Then abused the ConCourt & robbed.
- You abused the Supreme Court& robbed.
- You abused Parliament & robbed.
- You rob people’s lives daily.
- You rob a whole generation.
- Now we want everything back!

The MDC party still claims that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) connived with ZANU PF and manipulated the 2018 presidential election in favour of President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The party also claims that the ruling party influenced both the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court, in that order, to declare President Mnangagwa as the winner of the 2018 presidential election and to reinstate Khupe as the leader of the MDC.
MDC also accuses ZANU PF of bad governance which it says collapsed the country’s economy.
