Chamisa ‘Chickens Out’ Of Party Name Challenge

The Thokozani Khupe led Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) faction has scoffed at their rival group led by Nelson Chamisa for chickening out of a legal battle over party name and logo saying they finally seen the light.

Writing on his Facebook page, MDC-T Khupe faction Vice President, Obert Gutu said the MDC Chamisa group has applied to have the matter against Khupe and others removed from High court roll.

“The ill-advised legal challenge by the Chamisa led faction against the leadership of the MDC-T has dismally failed. This morning Monday The 2nd of July 2018, our erstwhile comrades applied to have their matter against President Dr Thokozani Khupe, Vice President Adv Obert Gutu and National Chairperson Eng Abedinico Bhebhe, removed from the High Court’s roll,” wrote Gutu.

Linda Masarira who is Khupe’s National Secretary for Information and Publicity, hailed the legal team for what she deemed a sterling job.

“On behalf of the MDC-T party, I would like to thank our legal team led by the very able and exceptional Professor Lovemore Madhuku, for the sterling work done in defense of what is just and fair. The MDC-T led by Hon. Dr. Thokozani Khupe continues as the legitimate and lawful MDC-T,” said Masarira.

The Chamisa faction of MDC-T was represented by Advocate Thabani Mpofu.
