As the MDC-Alliance heats up for electoral congress, party vice president Elias Mudzuri and Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora are allegedly secretly working with the party leadership in Masvingo to remove Nelson Chamisa from the presidency, party sources have revealed.

Mwonzora and Mudzuri are taking full advantage of the clash between Chamisa and Masvingo provincial chairperson James Chafungamoyo Gumbi to advance their political ambitions.

Gumbi, who has been supporting Chamisa for the presidency switched camp after being embarrassed by the youthful leader at a provincial council meeting at Mucheke Hall in Masvingo two weeks ago.

“Gumbi is now working with Mudzuri and Mwonzora in plotting Chamisa’ s ouster.

Known Zanu PF members and state security agents are joining party structures at will,” said a senior party official.
