Chamisa,Khupe Ready For Unity Talks
The two warring MDC-T leaders, Nelson Chamisa (pictured) and Thokozani Khupe, who are fighting over use of the opposition party’s name and symbols following their acrimonious split last month, have reportedly agreed to go back to the negotiating table to resolve their differences amicably with a possibility of reuniting.
This comes against the backdrop of a failed High Court bid by the Chamisa camp to bar Khupe from using the party name and symbols.
On Tuesday, Bulawayo High Court judge, Justice Francis Bere ordered the two camps to seek arbitration on the matter, saying he could not tell which of the two MDC-T factions was legitimate.
MDC-T acting chairperson, Morgen Komichi yesterday seemed to suggest that he was ready for unity talks with Khupe, adding “there is unity (power) in numbers”.
“I said Thokozani should come back. She must comply and respect the decision of the national council and we are prepared to accommodate her, even today and continue working with her.
“(Former organizing secretary Abednico) Bhebhe should come and we want to work with him, (former party spokesperson) Obert Gutu must come and we want to work with him,” he said.
