MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has blasted President Mnangagwa for abusing the COVID-19 national lockdown to fight and decimate the opposition.
The most loved politician said the use of the army and police to take over his party headquarters, Harvest House and hand it over to his rival Thokozani Khupe, was unfortunate.
Chamisa described Khupe’s seizure of his party offices as “child’s play”, adding that it would not take his party “two minutes” to reclaim the party headquarters if it so wished.
“He (Mnangagwa) is busy fighting people, ignoring calls to unite and defeat COVID-19. He is now sending our army to take over Harvest House, how is it a security issue? Are there weapons at Harvest House?”
“It’s just that we don’t want to go there yet, it won’t take us two minutes to go there. Who will stop me from going to Harvest House? I will go there in broad daylight. It is only that we are not a violent people and that is why we went to court to respect processes and we hope all will go well, but if it fails, we can’t have a stranger forcing us out of our place. Khupe can’t just come and claim everything she knows is not hers, it is embarrassing for her. It is dangerous to claim what is not yours,” Chamisa thundered.
