JOHANNESBURG – THE Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) ranks in South Africa are shell shocked to learn that their estranged Chairman Chief Ndlovu opposed Party President Morgan Tsvangirai’s decision to reinforce MDC presidency by appointing Nelson Chamisa and Elias Mudzuri as Vice Presidents.

Ndlovu acted in cohorts with his External Assembly counterparts in USA and UK in questioning the wisdom of Tsvangirai.

In an open letter to Tsvangirai dated August 2, USA province chairperson Den Moyo supported by UK’s Tonderai Samanyanga and South Africa’s Chief Ndlovu, urged the MDC-T leader to reverse the “hurried surreptitious appointments concocted in some smoky backrooms.”

In the emotionally-charged letter, the three demanded an explanation from Tsvangirai over the appointments, failure which the MDC-T leader ran the risk of being labelled tribal, chauvinistic and undemocratic.

The trio are surprisingly maintaining their positions even though all provinces back home threw their weight behind Tsvangirai’s decision to appoint the duo.

The Standard Newspaper reported that the ‘rebels’ were also threatening to take the issue to the court of public opinion after Tsvangirai failed to respond to his letter.

The MDC flock in RSA which he is supposed to be shepherding are however singing a different tune.

They are riling with anger over the abject misrepresentation of their feelings. Instead they are tacitly indorsing the elevation of the MDC fire brands Chamisa and Mudzuri.

“Districts and branches are fuming and asking me where the province got the mandate to adopt such a stance before consulting them. I have no option except to frankly tell them that I was equally surprised when Ndlovu stood up in the council and volleyed shots at the president,” said Trust Ndlovu the Organising Secretary of MDC SA.

Trust apologised to the file and ranks of MDC in South Africa and vowed to correct the misrepresentation that was made by Chief.

The Organising Secretary hit out at his boss who he accused of abandoning the MDC structures in South Africa preferring to meddle with politics at Harvest House.

“Chief never held any properly constituted MDC meeting in South Africa as he is always in Zimbabwe driving or sponsoring agendas that are at variance with the mandate of MDC SA Province. He never met with anyone to solicit input. So where did he get that,” said Trust.

Efforts to contact Chief were futile as his phone kept on ringing without being picked.
