Breaking: Tsvangirai names Chamisa, Mudzuri MDC-T vice presidents

In what could be a move to deal with the succession issue in the opposition MDC-T, party leader Morgan Tsvangirai has appointed Elias Mudzuri and Nelson Chamisa as vice presidents of the opposition.

The two new appointees join the party’s first vice-president Thokozani Khupe to leave the party with three lieutenants to Tsvangirai.

Tsvangirai was recently diagnosed with cancer of the colon, an ailment that is likely to affect his role as party leader as the party gears for the land mark 2018 elections.

The MDC-T leader arrived yesterday from South Africa where he is receiving treatment. A legion of his supporters thronged the streets of Harare city to welcome him amid a heavy police presence.

  1. what about Khupe?

    1. Inga panzi to make vice presidents 3 wani pa article

    2. WHAT HYPOCRISY! 3 VPS! SICK! ALL MAKARANGA!NOT SERIOUS! THIS IS THE END OF THE MDC T!

      1. Tjigababili ,you dont understand principles on which mdc operate so shut up yo mouth.

    3. Whats Wrong With MDC

      We are castigating ZANU PF for having TWO unneccessary vice presidents, now MDC has THREE!!!! MDC learnt one or two things during their stay with ZANU. What a waste. Tsvangirai you want to make yourself a life president like Mugabe. No only that, you have three VPs, hesi mhani.

  2. So is the woman organising Kuchaya Mapoto, Ms Khupe fired ? Or Does MDC-T now have THREE VICE PRESIDENTS? What rank madness!!!!

    1. Do not just rush to post it’s clearly stated that the two appointees join the first vice president Thokozani Khupe. Do you ever read to understand ?

      1. Teach them to read well

  3. Chamisa suspect maan he has business deals with Gushungo Dairy

    1. Lovemore Moyo is married to a Zanu PF minister’s daughter and Morgan married to former CIO and Zanu PF member’s daughter saka zvekuita business kwaChamisa neGushungo Dairy zvanetsa papi ?? Makorokoto Hon Advocate Nelson Chamisa

  4. Sam Kurauzvione

    MDC – T = regionalism / tribalism / sexism / despotism

    1. Keep your disgusting comments to yourself you pathetic person.

    2. Even a layman would tell that you are not being genuine. can you not read between the lines that Tsvangirai is ceding power to Khupe who will be aided by Mudzuri and Chamisa??? Whats the problem there? Some coments soooo

  5. msana we ngombe

    Is that constitutional? Thought MDC vice presidents were elected. Thought the centre of power in MDC was the people.

  6. Khupe is on Chemotherapy daa!

  7. is this strategic, wil this bring anything towards the cause of the movement

  8. hakuna democracy yakadaro.MDC ne ZANU same same..#tajamuka #thisflag movement power to the people

  9. tsop tops post opts stop spot

    hahahahaha, mdc commiting suicide!

  10. This is simple maths. Khupe has become the president of MDC-T aided by two vice ie Mudzuri and Chamisa while Tsvangirai cedes power to become the advisor

    1. Simple question Levis. Is this in the MDC constitution? Probably not is my guess

  11. Aaaaaa todii

  12. It shows our trust is not inGod tirikutyei why panic whether Tsvangirai or Mugabe or who else lets trust God and depend on him

  13. Yussf Shaik Gupta

    I have always told you that Tswangison is Mugabe’s student, Mugabe is Smith’s student. History always repeats itself. Opposition leaders are mentored by people they oppose. They are just power hungry, not driven by grievance but greed. MDC is slowly turning into Zanu PF. Zanu Pf has turned into RF.

  14. Thats how wisdom works. Moses has played his part and won’t mind handing over the baton to Joshua. Already, he has helped the people cross the Red sea and almost reach the promised land. On the other end, his competitor remains adamant and won’t mind leaving succession chaos. What high headedness? Such defiance even to the laws of nature defeats logic.

  15. If only mwonzora had known or been friends with the gods and the spirits. He would not have worried himself becoming secretary-general. He would now be a vice-president. Ndakaziva haitangi mberi.

    1. SEC GEN IS A MORE POWERFUL POST THAN VP

  16. Shows the confidence that the party has on Khuphe

  17. Do some of you guys commenting here even give yourself just a fraction of a second to think? I take heart in that there are people like @Levis.
    The way I see it, Tsvangirai remains the FACE of opposition and so the peoples choice. What he is simply doing is making Khupe the president and the other two vice presidents. If anything happens between now and 2018 then the party will not descend into chaos because everything is now set.
    Iiiiii haaaa mamwe macomments sooo

  18. tsvangirai had strategically placed Chamisa for power

    1. And so, what is wrong with that?

    1. Dirty game

  19. Funny thing, a simple question has been asked and not answered. Are the appointments in line with the MDC-T constitution?

    A leader who does not uphold his own party’s constitution can not be trusted to uphold the country’s constitution, plain and simple.

  20. Weston Mugocha

    Another bloated government in the making if we are unfortunate enough to have this party in power. May be Save is working on BB date. ………….Best Before.

  21. But these MDC-T sellouts blame His Excellency President Mugabe for a bloated presedium——————-.Confused idiots,Tsvangirayi only knows to open his zip.

  22. MUNHU HAAGONEKE EVEN IF HE strategically placed Chamisa for power AT LEAST HE KNOWS WHEN TO STEP DOWN UNLIKE SOMEBODY WHO HAS FAILED TO STRATEGICALLY PLACE ANYONE FOR POWER FOR THE PAST THIRTY SOMETHING YEARS , WE ARE BEHIND YOU SAVE ON WHAT EVER DECISION YOU TAKE .MAKARWA KURWA KWAKANAKA. GOD BE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY.

  23. Ziziharinanyanga

    Read between the political lines. obviously Tsvangirai and Khupe will live office due to poor health. Mudzuri and Chamisa will take over as president and vice president.

  24. Why 2 or 3 vice presidents? Tswangson is not well with colon cancer .why do zimbos want to cling to power . Why can he resign.. africans africans

  25. Sure Tsvangirai and Kupe are sick. So its a smooth transfer of power

  26. edwin chimera

    Hapana chiZANU apa, remember this was announced at a press conference meant to update on what was discussed in yesterday’s National Council. This was agreed within the party and is not Save’s sole decision. At least mdc-t is solving their succession issue. Vakangwara kupfuura ZANU.

  27. kuchemakwauya

    inga mati african politics wani, save ndivo face of mdc. Remember its a game of numbers. Ndaifungaaa hutungamiriri ndihwo hunomiririra vanhu saka Ndivo zvakare vanogonaa kuamender bumbiro. Ndafunga kuti ndihwo uchenjeri kuti munoisa imba yenyu in order mafactions asatiatanga nekuda kusadoma ano pfuudzirz mberi basa, makorokoto hon chamisa navamudzuri chiregai kucheuka muridzo. Fambai save

  28. We are waiting to hear him do a David Cameron!

  29. Some morons can’t even see that Tsvangirai is planning ahead by ceding power. …Poor health is forcing him to go by the sidelines. ..He is grooming the guys. ..Mai Khupe. ..President. ..no tribalism or regionalism Tsvangirai is from Buhera but appointing vanhu vekuMasvingo. ..because of their capabilities. …Dai aive netribalism aisa weManicaland. ….Zvakatosiya neimwe harabwa yatinetsa

  30. At least there is a sign of ramangwana lets hope the strategy is for the party and people

  31. Well done Save for showing gushungo how its done. Chamisa is very much capable; together with Mudzuri. They were there since day 1, stood by the party through thick & thin. They have been tried & tested and we have trust in their leadership. Vamwe vanotya kugroomer vekusiira

  32. Dunlop Munjanja

    People are shouting about the MDC constitution blaah blaah.
    How about the Zim constitution which has been trashed by ZANU a zillion times?
    When one has a few neurons upstairs, its best to keep quiet.

    Anyway, as has been said, Morgan is not well, neither is Thoko.
    It naturally follows that there should be a plan in place in that eventuality, a phrase that is enshrined in the MDC constitution.
    You ZANU morons braying about this and that better get you gear packed because change is coming.

  33. This youngman Chamisa is real material for leadership

  34. chamisa mutupo ndiyani tiwane kutenda. hardwrk n loyalty have landed u where u are, u are an ideal candidate fo the presidency.

  35. who owns MDC-T??? is it the pipo or Tsvangirai?? if it z a family company then Tsvangirai can name a successor, if is a political party by the pipo then the pipo will name a successor. 3 VPs??? seriously, and u call that mentoring, hw VPs hv been there in Zanu PF?? was it also for mentoring? come on Zim Citizens its time to work up, and show these politicians that power belongs to the pipo and stop them doing as if they own the pipo. Tsvangirai has no ryt to appointment those VPs saka basa revanhu rava rei. musajairirwa mhani.

    1. ndiyika democracy yamunogara muchitiparidzira kkkkkklkk kutoparara kweimwe party uku

  36. kkkklkkklklk seka hako,(Tsvangirai exercising his power) yaa murikunzvenga kutaura chokwad apa musatiudze tuma sections twe costitution twekuda kuedza kutivhara .vakomana the word DEMOCRACY munongoita rekunzwa richiparidzwa vanhu vachingotsvaga kutonga chete hezvoka!!!!!!ok tombot nekuda kwekuti arikurwara but du u handpick .ofcoz chamisa is a gud guy but kuita kunongedza here vakomana ,i promise u guys weather u lyk it or not,pay back tym is cming muchaona henyu chipoko cha DEMOCRACY afa uyu dai chikasazopedza vanhu
