Chamisa Hints On New Party Name, Again

Chamisa Hints On New Party Name, Again

MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa has hinted, yet again, that the opposition party will adopt a new name as the party gears up for the 26 March by-elections and 2023 harmonised elections.

The MDC-T led by Douglas Mwonzora said it will use the MDC Alliance as its name in elections, leaving Chamisa’s party without a name.

Mwonzora has gone as far as writing a letter to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) asking the electoral body not to allow any other political party to use the name MDC or its derivatives in any election as it is their identity.

Tweeting on Sunday morning, Chamisa hinted of a new party name by referring to a Biblical story of a quarrel between the patriarch, Isaac and the Philistines over wells of water.

The Philistines were jealous of Isaac’s wealth and they claimed a spring he had dug as theirs.

Isaac then dug another well and gave it a new name, and yet again, the Philistines claimed it as theirs, forcing him to move to another place and digging another well and giving it a different name. Wrote Chamisa:

WE WILL FLOURISH… Then they dug another well, but they quarrelled over that one also; so he named it Sitnah.

He moved on from there &dug another well, no one quarrelled over it. He named it Rehoboth, saying, “Now the LORD has given us room & we will flourish in the land.” Genesis: 26.20-22.

University of Kent law lecturer, Alex Magaisa, a former advisor to the late MDC founding president, Morgan Tsvangirai, recently urged Chamisa to abandon the MDC brand and adopt a new name for the party

Magaisa argued that there are some battles that are not worth fighting. That was after the Chamisa-led party had vowed not to give up the MDC Alliance name without a fight.

When Mangoma and Biti acrimoniously left Tsvangirai(mhdsrip) after arguing that the latter should step down as MDC T president , Mr Nelson Chamisa was in BiTI s camp.Imfact he advised BiTI to leave and form a new party , promising that he would follow him soon.Upon seeing the Secretary General position left vacant by BITI, Chamisa developed cold feet and remained frozen at haverst house knowing that the congress was near.After losing the SG position to Mwonzora, he was pained since he felt Tsvangirai had deliberately rigged it for Mwonzora.I happened to be a friend of the late Islam Madhosi(mhdsrip), who was chief of security in the MDCT and a very close friend of Chamisa.They drove him from City sports center to a harare location where Madhosi stayed.I saw him being consoled by the following words."don't worry iwe mfana , tabirwa ehe but pako unopaziva .Ipo paari Ipapo inguva chete"
When Tsvangirai (mhdsrip) passed away in 2018 Feb, Chamisa literally grabbed power before even going to commiserate with the beareved ones.I know everyone knows that but don't want to accept it , especially MaZiZi.We the people of Zimbabwe allowed grief to overwhelm us and allow one individual to disregard democratic processes that were provided by the MDCT constitution , inorder to bring him to the helm of the party.Leve headed people pointed it out that very on 15 Feb 2018 that he came to power unconstitutionally but we paid a deaf ear.
After the elections Chamisa decided to abandon the MDCT to MDCA during their ill fated gweru congress in that served as a moment to push out all the old guard that had travelled with Tsvangirai from the beginning .Mr Chamisa surrounded himself with the Maheres of today.He felt threatened with the Old Guard.
Now it seems mr Chamisa has finally decided to leave the last vestige that connects him with Morgan Tsvangirai , the name itself.He has formed his party after dragging the people with him, clever art of politics! However the moment of truth is beckoning for him.
The 2023 elections will have a sobering reality of the extended of the damage he left behind.

Well spoken guys Chamisa is undemocratic and a trickster, his ascendancy to power in the opposition is a clear demonstration of his follies. He faces outright defeat in 2023.

@cleopas@, sorry I didn't finish up , I wanted to say Chamisa wanted to be president for a long time.Thats were developed his character of political backstabbing and grandstanding.He tricked BiTI to leave MDCT simply because he wanted the sec general position to vacant inorder for to be well placed for presidency.I was trying show the part of genesis of his shenanigans, his trail of betrayal , use and dump strategy.Also that the issue of concourt was self made by him.
There are lot of people out there who were mdc but not anymore because he dumped them.
Of course you guys might blinkered not to accept that the guy has a lot of undemocratic tendencies but he has them.And for that matter he has managed to divide the votes ...it's coming
