MDC battle has turned nasty in Mashonaland East province, with the Mwonzora allies having approached the courts seeking a protection order against the Chamisa-led MDC Alliance councillors.
MDC-T provincial administrator Wellington Makonese has approached the courts seeking a peace order against Chamisa allies.
“I have filed for a protection order at the Marondera Magistrates Court against three councillors and other MDC Alliance officials who are threatening me as well as causing mayhem at party offices. These are the same people who besieged and ransacked the party offices,” he said.
Three councillors, Charles Ngwena (ward 4), Saizi Vilela (ward 11) and Wonder Siriya (ward 6), are set to appear in court on May 27.
The councillors are also being investigated for allegedly breaking into party offices and removing 47 chairs, among other property, following the Supreme Court ruling that ordered the party to revert to the 2014 structures, edging Chamisa from the apex.
In a letter dated May 5, Mwonzora said Makonese was the acting provincial administrator who should stay at the party’s provincial headquarters.
