Mudzuri Blames Party Members👊 for Chamisa’s Rise
MDC-T deputy president Engineer Elias Mudzuri has cast aspersions on the presidency of Mr Nelson Chamisa, saying party members “followed the wind” in choosing the late founding party president Mr Morgan Tsvangirai’s successor.
In an interview, Eng Mudzuri, who was non-committal on his support for Mr Chamisa’s presidential bid in the forthcoming elections, said it was regrettable that the party had split following the sacking of Dr Thokozani Khupe and her allies.
Eng Mudzuri, one of the three MDC-T deputies who were angling to succeed Mr Tsvangirai, but fell into line as it became clear that Mr Chamisa had grabbed power, said Mr Tsvangirai had wished for the party to remain united.
He said he was not sure if the party was taking the correct path following its recent split.
“There is a lot I can say, but he is already there and we have to find a way of working with him and to see whether we can deliver the political goods,” said Eng Mudzuri.
“Opinions sometimes don’t matter about public office, it is the public that judges people.
“The only thing that I can say is he has reached 40 years. That’s the age you are allowed to become a president. And we have to work to find if we get there.”
