Khupe Declares Herself New MDC-T President

Khupe Declares Herself New MDC-T President

Suspended MDC-T vice president, Thokozani Khupe, has announced the split of the opposition party and declared herself president of the new faction.

This comes barely 24 hours after MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora suspended Khupe and her close ally and former party spokesperson Khaliphani Phugeni.

In announcing Khupe’s suspension on Thursday, the party’s spokesperson Witness Dube said she was being investigated on several allegations. 

But addressing journalists and party supporters at Macdonald Hall in Mzilikazi, Bulawayo, on Friday morning, Khupe said Mwonzora fired himself from the party when he announced they would contest the upcoming by-elections as MDC Alliance. Said Khupe:

Mwonzora has notified the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission that he will contest the upcoming by-elections under the MDC Alliance party, in so doing Mwonzora has fired himself from the party because, in terms of the MDC-T constitution, membership of the party shall be terminated if a member joins or supports a political party other than the MDC-T, termination of membership in these circumstances is automatic.

With all these transgressions, Douglas Togarasei Mwonzora cannot continue at the helm of a democratic party such as MDC-T.

It is in this vein that today, we, who are gathered here and many others scattered around the country, declare an official split.

They are now two MDC-T formations, one led by yours truly, Dr Thokozani Khupe, who is also the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly and the other who I don’t know who their leader is.

Iyo zanu yacho ma cracks oga oga but whats left in it is ZANU NDOO IRI KUDYISA PA ZIMBABWE. Aslong u in the top brass of zanu unorarama mu zim.even zrp chaiyo haikubate unless wapesana ne ZANU or isisakude. Thats y ana madam khupe vave kusiiwa so. Mwonzora will be next. It might not be earlier but his usefulness is going to dwindle and by that tym ndoopachabuda chokwadi.

Both Khupe & Mwonzora are deplorable individuals, but Mwonzora has the upperhand at present and he will prevail legally & politically. Mwonzora has effective occupation of the HQ Harvest House and the support of the MDC-T Structures, no matter how bogus they are. Whereas Khupe has Khaliphani Phugeni. Just two individuals cast out political paradise. Mwonzoro is more useful to ZPF than Khupe. Khupe was suspended procedurally and she is due to face disceplinary processes. She has not submitted to the disceplinary hearing and she has not yet exhausted internal redress mechanisms. She has no constitutional power as an individual to suspend her superior Mwonzora. That can only be done by the NEC through a majority resolution. Its just a matter of sour grapes on Khupes part, all along she participated in MDC-T activities without raising objections only to now turn around bcoz she has been suspended. She is not only fighting against Mwonzora but against ZANU PF too. Hence the odds are stacked against her. Mwonzora is not only apolitical serpent but a cunning lawyer as well. Thats why ED gives Mwonzora an audience. Whereas Khupe is emmotional abd hasty uncalculated decisions.

Khuphe plays her cards closed on chest, don't take her granted.. A split doesn't need a NEC or whatsoever... Khuphe has preparing for that,a long time now.. Mwonzora is a lawyer buh doesn't follow e constitution.. MaKhuphe, constitutionalism is her strength..e MDC constitution backs her.... Mwonzora dismissed himself from Mdct as he wrote to Zec that he will contest as an MDC alliance, that is an automatic dismissal.

In recent days, Dougie warns that all names relating to MDC and all MDC variants refer to MDC family. However, ZEC did not share the same view. This is unusual. Dougie made the same mistake that Chamisa of operating under a non-existing political party MDT Alliance. The name casts long shadows.

Dr Khupe is applying the law. In essence Dougie joins another grouping called MDT Alliance. It remains to be seen if Khupe will hold fresh elections.

At MDC ALLIANCE, MWONZORA HAS GOT NO DOOR BECAUSE OF RECALLING THE MDC ALLIANCE PARTY MEMBERS SAYING THAT THEY ARE NOT OF THE MDC T.

AT THE MDC T, NO DOOR AGAIN BECAUSE HE FIRED HIMSELF BECAUSE OF WRITING A LETTER TO ZEC ABOUT CONTESTING THE BY ELECTIONS AS THE MDC ALLIANCE PRESIDENT

MAYBE THEY CAN BE 2 MDC T PARTIES.
ONE CAN BE MDC THOKOZANI AND THE OTHER ONE WILL BE MDC T ALLIANCE MWONZORA I DON'T KNOW

MWONZORA MWONZORA MWONZORA MWONZORA

THEN WHO WILL BE AT THE MDC T HARVEST HOUSE HEADQUARTERS NOW

MADAM KHUPE CAN WIN THIS ACCORDING TO THE MDC T CONSTITUTION

MWONZORA WILL BE HELPED BY HIS HELPERS WHO HELPED HIM TO OVER TAKE OVER THE HARVEST HOUSE HEADQUARTERS BUT THAT WAS MADAM KHUPE'S REGIME WHICH WAS ON POWER WHEN THE HARVEST HOUSE HEADQUARTERS WERE COLONISED

NOW IT'S YOUR TIME TOGARASEYI TO DREAM ABOUT YOUR PAST

WITHIN TWO YEARS YOU WERE IN MDC ALLIANCE AND THEN YOU LATER SOLD YOURSELF TO MDC T THINKING THAT YOU CAN DRIBBLE THE OLD MAGOGO NOW YOUR BEARS ARE BURNING KKKKKKK

JUST DO IT DOUGIE IT'S YOUR TIME KKKKKK
