Nelson Chamisa is banking on sympathy for Tsvangirai, a prominent figure who challenged Mugabe and later joined a troubled coalition with him. Without Tsvangirai the MDC-T party has now fractured, with some violence. “Tsvangirai has been our best foot forward. He had a lot of goodwill and I am inheriting all the positives. We are simply harvesting,” Nelson Chamisa said.
The opposition is apparently now crying foul accusing Mnangagwa of stuffing his government with military personnel or better still claiming government is now being run by a military council. Even so, opposition MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu declared this week that the democratic struggle in Zimbabwe is “far from over”.
