MDC Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora has ruled himself out of running for the presidency of the party and endorsed Nelson Chamisa instead. Mwonzora has backed Chamisa and declared his candidature for the Secretary-General post of the party instead.

This will come as a major blow to the ruling Zanu-PF which has been backing Mwonzora to take over the leadership of the party arguing that he was more ‘mature’ than Chamisa.
