MDC-Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is now in a two-front war after his deputy Elias Mudzuri declared he was ready to challenge anyone.

Mudzuri joins MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora, who has also declared that he would challenge Chamisa if nominated.

After keeping his ambitions a closely-guarded secret, Mudzuri yesterday opened up on his bid saying he would contest any position, including the presidency, if he is nominated.

“If nominated, I am prepared to challenge anyone,” he said.

The former Energy minister dismissed reports that he had struck a deal with Chamisa where he would have backed the party’s 2018 presidential candidate to lead the country’s main opposition part

“The news report that made emphatic claims about a supposed deal between myself and Advocate Chamisa, is wholly untrue,” Mudzuri said.

“No such understanding has been considered, much less reached.

“The story could have only originated from a very mischievous tale bearer, seeking to engineer and manipulate public discourse to fit in a personal scheme.”zimsituation
