If you want a long life, follow the constitution, Komichi tells Chamisa

By James Martin

MDC-T chairman Morgen Komichi has told MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa that if he wants to live a long life he should consider following the constitution.

Chamisa is accused of having violated the party’s constitution in his ascendancy to succeed the late founding president Morgan Tsvangirai in February 2018.

The ascendancy by Chamisa was this week annulled by the Supreme Court which declared that Thokozani Khupe is the rightful person to takeover Tsvangirai’s place ahead of an extraordinary congress.

“I call upon Honourable Nelson Chamisa to accept the court ruling and participate in the election processes.

“He may actually win who knows. He is a popular guy why should he be afraid? He should actual shame the devil and he will live a long life if he respects the constitution and people will support him so much,” he said.

Komichi, a long-standing loyal figure to the late Tsvangirai said he tried all he can to advise the party and Chamisa to abide by the party’s constitution but to no avail.

“I have never endorsed the idea of going against the party’s constitution. I have always advised in a respectful manner to say let us follow the constitution.

“When we decided to support Nelson Chamisa, he was the best way forward but it was not based on violating the constitution.”

However, another school of thought is of the view that Komichi supported Chamisa but is bitter that the youthful leader did not offer him protection at the 2019 congress which saw him losing big time. Get all COVID-19 statistics for Zimbabwe from COVID-TRACKER
