I stand with Chamisa, he is the people’s President, says Chinyanganya

Kadoma Central legislator Muchineripi Chinyanganya says he still stands with Nelson Chamisa despite the Supreme Court judgement which declared that Thokozani Khupe is the legitimate leader of MDC-T.

Chinyanganya joins a host of other MDC Alliance officials who have expressed their continued support to Chamisa’s leadership.

In an interview, Chinyanganya who is also a legal practitioner by training said while he is still studying the judgement but his support remains with the youthful politician.

I am still studying the judgement but I am standing with president Chamisa.

He is the one who was endorsed by the people at the 2019 congress.

In the Presidential elections, he got more than 2.6 million votes. He is the people’s President,” he said.

The Supreme Court judgement has however raised more question that will need to be answered for example Dr Khupe already has legislators in the National Assembly under the banner of MDC-T and if she is to assume leadership of the MDC Alliance by virtue of being MDC-T leader how will this be treated and what will become of those legislators.

There are also legislators from Tendai Biti’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and those of Professor Welshman Ncube’s MDC-N.

How will Khupe work with the Alliance when she was against its formation arguing that MDC had the capacity to contest and win on its own.
