Some school of thought is however of the view that Mwonzora want Chamisa to accept the outcome so that they can benefit from the party supporters and structures for the extraordinary congress that has been demanded by the court in the next three months.
It is believed that the Khupe’s faction, without Chamisa’s acceptance, cannot come up with the required number of at least two-thirds of total congress membership to hold the extraordinary congress.
Currently, most party structures including some individuals who constitute the 2014 strictures are reportedly rallying behind Chamisa.
“Given your rebellion against Tsvangirai it becomes a habit, doesn’t it? Only time will tell,” he said.
“We don’t need to wait for time to tell. Chamisa is astute, very astute. He doesn’t need me to make informed and strategic choices.
“Speaking for myself, and you can take this to your vault, I will not take over or rather I do not seek to take over in 2024 or at any other time,” he said.
The Supreme Court judgement has left a lot of people with questions especially with regards to how it is supposed to be implemented as both Khupe and Chamisa competed against each other in the 2018 general elections and both have legislators in Parliament.
The other question is whether Khupe has authority over legislators elected under the MDC Alliance banner, when at the same time she has her own legislators elected under the MDC-T banner. Get all COVID-19 statistics for Zimbabwe from COVID-TRACKER
