Chamisa ups stakes

ACTING MDC-T and MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa has upped the stakes in the race to succeed ailing party leader Morgan Tsvangirai and lined up countrywide campaign rallies, to build his political profile ahead of this year’s elections.

He also met Western diplomats and provincial party structures on Friday to solidify his stranglehold on opposition politics.

This came at a time his MDC-T rivals, Elias Mudzuri and Thokozani Khupe, were disputing his leadership, albeit in an acting capacity, of the opposition party.

Mudzuri claimed at the weekend that he was still acting MDC-T president while Khupe also insisted that she was the bonafide party leader in the absence of Tsvangirai by virtue of her election at the party’s congress in 2014.

Addressing thousands of supporters at an MDC Alliance rally in Masvingo yesterday, Chamisa assured his supporters that the internal fights currently rocking the MDC-T would be resolved next week.

Chamisa told thousands of supporters, who braved the rains, that the MDC Alliance government-in-waiting had mobilised enough resources to resolve the ongoing cash crisis within two weeks after winning the upcoming crunch general elections.

“If we don’t solve it in two weeks, you must remove us from office and corrupt elements will be dealt with. We will not be selecting who to arrest and who should be left out, we want a clean and transparent government,” he said.

Chamisa insisted that the MDC Alliance had mobilised a $15 billion bailout package for the country, which will be rolled out soon after the alliance took over the levers of power.

“Zanu PF has no infrastructure master plan, but we have it. We have already talked about the money that we need for infrastructure rehabilitation for the next three years, $14,9 billion is the money needed and we already have it, and we have assurances. If we disclose the source, people will raise questions about the source, so I will not disclose it,” he said.

Mudzuri, who also attended the Masvingo rally, was not given the platform to address the meeting.

MDC Alliance spokesperson Welshman Ncube told supporters that Chamisa had been endorsed by Tsvangirai and, therefore, there was no question over his credibility.

“Tsvangirai said to me, I, as Morgan Tsvangirai, I will not be with you, but I will give you Nelson Chamisa and after that meeting I phoned Chamisa to come on the same day. He came and president Tsvangirai repeated what he had said to me in his presence,” Ncube said.

The Masvingo rally was attended by all MDC Alliance partners – People’s Democratic Party’s Tendai Biti, Transform Zimbabwe’s Jacob Ngarivhume, Zim People First’s Agrippah Mutambara, Zanu Ndonga and Multi-Racial Christian Democrats.

  1. There’s definitely a better feeling of renewed energy & hope for the future coming out of the this young man than all the other spent forces in both mdc & zanupf put together

  2. if this young man is going to build hos future and the future of the opposition party on a repeated Lie of $15bln support package then the bus he is driving is heading for a terrible crash and this time around he perfect the Lie by not naming the funders, no the mature will not buy that crap.

    1. The mature bought the 2.2 million jobs. Kindly sit down sir!

      1. Can I respectively contribute to your debate , Sir.
        Just because your country is called Zimbabwe the USA can give you $15 billion? Ask yourself: Why? What’s special about this “shithole”? that a whole Super[power will feel it has to give you all that money – if it’s not just a lie to the gullible.mi

  4. Comment…A heavy loss is on its way fr the kid

  5. Comrade Chamisa must learn that you cannot sell lies the electorate. MDC is broke and you have not even paid your workers. Zimbabwe is not for sell. No has promised money. Trump is not putting billions into Zimbabwe . MDC has been a minority party since inception and its seats have declined with every election. Put you divided house in order maybe you retain a few but ZANU Patriot Front will decimate the divided and failed partners in 2018 Harmonized. Even Prophet Magaya can see this! You cannot even wait for Morgan to recover. Those who fight over a dead man shoes while he is alive have lost the respect of all Zimbabweans. Go to Congress and elect a new leader the three vice presidents of MDC are power hungry self-seekers. Get new faces and you may retain a few votes!
    Learn from the Tswana elders who say: ” Maka hasi kumo” ” Lies are are not wealth”

    1. sit down those are your own sentiments not the whole country. Ed has been feeding lies about FDIs. so relax baba atleast he has a track record of good governance(MDC) Problem is munokanganwa whilst Mdc was building the economy btwn 2009-13 Zanu was bit mastering the art of rigging. better pray ED wont face Chamisa in the upcoming elections. better yet toda debate first

    2. true the party is so broke..couldn`t afford to take their president for treatment..surely if taking care of your president is not your priority then what is? If you can not take care of your president what about the general citizenry?

      1. poor thinking, you are a disgrace to your family and tribe. do you think the country is run by party finance. govt makes its money through various and diverse manners. are you rich yourself, those that have money right now are thieves. wake up see what is happening around before you put your lousy opinion in

  9. Its so surprising that people expect change from the same people that have been in power for 37 years and moreso holding key positions in the same government that failed the nation.Ma Zimbo we are to quick to forget.Who was at the forefront of denying the opposition their win in 2008? Who went on to orchestrate the long sleeve short sleeve brutal campaign?To the youth of this nation, come on lets join hands together and vote new fresh blood into leadership.Its better to try out something new that keep on keeping on with deadwood, old old wine in new bottles. Hapana hapana. Wait until you give them a 5 year mandate ndopamuchaona kuti macnhunks haisis nyama vatanga hunhu hwavo.

  14. chamisa for president

    1. Can I respectively contribute to your debate , Sir.
      Just because your country is called Zimbabwe the USA can give you $15 billion? Ask yourself: Why? What’s special about this “shithole”? that a whole Super[power will feel it has to give you all that money – if it’s not just a lie to the gullible.
      First get the money and settle MDC debts first, Mfan’wami! How much does the US give to Israel and Zimbabwe or MDC yashamisei? Ngwarai!

  15. @ronald, why giving money when not in government.
    I am not saying what MDC Chamisa is saying is true but I believe them. These guys have amazing influence believe it or not. Before the inclusive government things were terrible, when the guys like Chamisa got in, malines e ma cell phones went down from $150-00 to $0,50 within a week, saka hapana choramba. Again US$ rakamuka razara nyika yose zvakashamisa vanhu.

    1. Excuse , Me. No company was opened or re-opened during GNU! People just rushed to import SA goods and we became a huge tuckshop for SA goods and services but no job was created! No industry was opened! No investor came in ! Check you statistics! Even Biti knows that thge GNU was just managing humanitarian food aid!

      1. Industrial capacity utilisation reached its peak at 57,2% in 2011, before sliding to 44,2% in 2012, 39,6% in 2013, 36,3 % in 2014 and 34,3% in 2015.

    2. Anti-Gundamusairaj

      “…..US$ rakamuka razara nyika yose…” I would only care just a little to know that the country is currently weighed down by around US$13billion debt plus around us$2billion trade deficit

    3. Don’t forget spanners were being thrown in the works left, right and centre. Welshman brought investors for Ziscosteel and it was a still birth because of sabotage…just one example of what MDC tried doing but stopped. Now how did you expect investors to put in money with such Zanu discord, Ministers not attending to the PM’s meetings etc. After that Zanu promised 2,2 million jobs and only created two for Simba at Air Zimbabwe and Bona at Empowerment bank.
      Just one other question why did the companies close in the first place that you wanted the MDC to open in 2008 to 2009? Who caused the companies to close?

  16. zanu pf silly supporters who are used to the destruction of Zimbabwe will never accept develpoment, they are used to corrupt activities while majority of Zimbabweans are suffering.We need a new Party!!!!Zanu failded for 37years. It had made thousands of liars and numerous riggig of elections.God is judging everything tis coming elections,, watchout

  17. Guys you msy say whatever and believe whatever , but I think a young president for Zimbabwe is the best move , Zanu PF has lie for long and serves its interests and protect the loot , Chiwenga said it .

  18. It surprise me , a gold panner is now called a small scale gold miner , I wonder the Zbc tv producers think when they are showing that to the world , lets open our minds and think straight , what new can Zanu PF give to the electorate now after 37 years of failure ?

  19. Chamisa is right. the business community only needs a leader they can trust and you are joking if you think honest and straight forward investors would put their money in a zanu pf gvt. l am voting for change

  20. Tick tick tick.
    Zanu PF, has been feeding mega lies on the state of the economy – when we are in a shithole.

    Zanu PF, as usual is using state funds to buy votes – electorate is now smarter will take money and still vote them out

    Zanu PF, has turned us into a nation of vendors, myself included – manufacturing sector in the morgue. Their plan is dololo.

    ED and THE General are so out of touch the army belongs to the people, tick tock tick tock. Gore rino muchafuratirwa neuto revanhu.

  21. @ DZIMBAHWE IF I HAVE LIVED 37YEARS OF SUCH LIES FROM ZANU PF YOU SAID, THEN IT IS THE SAME PIECE OF LIE chamisa is PREACHING KUTI KUCHAUYA 15 BILLION FROM WHERE.

    MY MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION IS WHY HE NEVER MENTION THAT pa CHITUNGWIZA only to go and start telling lies to rural focks kkkkk same methodology yaMugabe to manipulate rural focks.

    he is one of us by lying

    MY VOTE FOR ED Party in order by now noone knows who is who ku MDC (Tsvangirai or Chamisa, mudzuri or khupe ) mahumbwe

    how can aPARTY continue to entrust someone who is very unwell for so long kuDZOKERA KUMASHURE (The too old mugabe issue same fanana)

    1. iwe ndiwe munhu asiri kuziva zvaari kutaura. KuMasvingo kumusha here? nyaya ye15 bn haina kutangira ku Chi town here? gara pasi.

  22. HOW GO YOU THINK MUGABE FLEW HIS TAXI 767 AROUND THE WORLD , THE 15BIL WAS SET UP IN A BANK
    IN DUBAI WHO PAID FOR THE FUEL, NAVIGATION FEES,HOTEL BILLS,OTHER EXPENCES ETC
    HE HAS FORCED ZIM INTO A “MUGABE CONSTITUTION” ( COMMUNIST )
    GET RID OF IT

  23. $15 billion promised by Chamisa. can only be released after MDC-T won elections. Cant be used now because anoda kuti timbotambura. But MDC_T no money for their president medical bill, no money to pay workers, office rentals. anonyepa. he is greed for power. Atomhanyira pachinzvimbo SAVE achiri mupenyu.

    1. DUDE don’t compare Party finances and National finances. The party can not get the 15 bn released bcz they hv no National mandate yet. It can only be done wen they are in power as guardians of the finances. You cannot expect MDC to source funds for a Zanu pf gvt. Politically incorrect.

      1. THANK YOU …MAFUNGIRO EVAMWE VANHU SO UNOTOSHAYA KUTI AMANIKIDZWA KUTIPA STUPID OPINION YAKE HERE

  24. Chamisa holding the nation at ransom if they have the capacity then why not join the inclusive gvnt and solve these issues inside.They(MDC) would have a big leverage than making false claims of having 15 bida iyo. I foresee a heavy defeat for the young man

  25. Am a free thinker and i would prefer a young leader and a different party to lead this country.Gone are the days where we should be led by people who have failed our nation for 37 years.ED has been at the top of ZANU’s strategic potifolios , what will make him change today.

    When one talks of FDIs worth $15 b , it is not money for consumptive purposes but for capital expenditure such that GDP goes up.
    Some of you look like you are not family heads from how you respond to this issue.
    For you to improve and have a self sustaining future for your kids.What do you do?
    1. Educate your kids
    2.Invest in self sustaining projects
    3.Invest in capital projects
    At the time of doing this , most of your life will be in dissoder and you may even fail to feed your family like that of neighbours.
    In an underperforming economy like ours , those who are not in salary arrears or in debt are fraudsters.
    Its right that MDc is in red because we live within our means , those in zanupf are actually looting our resources .

    I will never vote Zanu pf , party of looters

  26. he is just 40yrs

  27. vote chamisa for total change ,coz President ED is also talking abt change,but half baked..MDC has promised to separate Gvt and party,to confine soldiers to barracks,to demonstrate freely and with riot accompaning u,democracy, free and fair elections,i believe these guy can do it ,he is a pastor

  28. i too support Nelson chamisa with all my mind and heart

    1. NELSON MANDELA
      NELSON CHAMISA
      ALL AFRICAN NATIONS NEEDS THESE NELSONS

      1. Mandela did what? to who? aaah mutengesi uyo.

  29. Zimbabwe is totally full of idiotfools who don’t want change because they are thinking that zimbabwe is theirs forever.We are not people of the zanu pf party thugs and we don’t belong to them.We want totally change of governing party and government,not to be stacked at one point by useless zanu pfs

  30. Regai Chamisa anyepe. Munofunga kuti Zanu Pf ndoinotenderwa kunyepa yega muno munyika here? Where are 2.2million jobs? Politics is all about lying

    1. Kutaura chokwadi regai shanduko imboitavo guys. We had been suffering for too long. can it be a country with 5% employment rate vedu voye. haa zvazonyanya. regai timboisavo ropa idzva. ofcoz Chamisa might be lying but regai timbovapavo mukana timboona how good or bad they are. Cloppy Mag

  31. We want younger leaders with new ideas more than old , selfish and corrupt Zanu administrators. mugabe govt & Ed govt same same. corrupt ppl like mpofu ar stl there. I am a youth and I know that most youths like chamisa rather than madhara angori nementality yehondo.tatoapplaya macourse kunana kumauniversity tine confidence kut mabasa achavapo and tichabhadharwa mari yakakwana. maZimbabweans hindava muchisupporter nonsense . do u noe tht a teacher in SA is better than a doctor in Zim and u stl praise a non-innovative Zanu Government. Avo varikut mdc yashamisei kusvika pakupiwa $15 billion ask yrselves kut Pakistan yaiva yashamisei kusvika pakupiwa $33 billion since 2002. american economy is much bigger than Vana China ava so the USA can do tht since it supports democracy . US AID yakawanda kudarika maaid edzimwe nyika dzose akabatanidzwa. The mdc is well related with western countries and this is a great advantage for Zimbabweans not merciless Eastern countries.

  32. His lies are destroying his credibility, and sadly he thinks if you tell the same lie so many times it becomes true. Simple advice young man, you have been exposed on that, look for a different topic that resonates with the people and they will quickly forget your lies. The more you keep at it, ZPF will feast on you, remember how they ruined Morgan among women voters by portraying him as an irresponsible guy who walks around dangling his thing.

  33. whether chamisa lies or not I dont care ,tinozviona tsvika ikoko ,we will cross the bridge when we get there
    #chamisa for pressy

  34. Mazimba Tine problem. Who will invest pane 51% yamakaisa. Sorry Maningi. Fungai.

  35. Totova asharukwa ekurarama ne promise. The promise is now like prophesy that you dont know the date. Majobs, roads achagadzirwa, mishonga muma Hospitals RIINI. Ngazviuye nyamasi chaiye.

  36. KKKKk! What can Chamisa do for us? If he could not run organising department and lost the Secretary General post, Who likes him. This guy can lie thru his teeth.

  37. Chamisa qualified as a lawyer recently. Surely we expect him to know that he cannot be his own witness in this case. So he was appointed by MT in private? And he is announcing the appointment himself? Why should we believe you Nelson?

    1. Go & vote 4 your ED (Hit the ground running). Pamberi naPastor Chamisa!!

  38. President Pastor Chamisa all the way. It’s high time for generational leadership renewal.Wise up maYouth!.

  39. #EDHASMYVOTE 2018 Pastor Chamisa 2023

  40. Nelson Chamisa politics is cheap politics. He is just showing that he has not the maturity, experience and character to run a country. Zimbabwe needs to work and produce to earn its own money rather than receive aid from any source. There is nothing for free, no free money. with aid, Zim will remain a captive and serve the interests of the bigger powers. For the hirer is the servant of the lender. We need proper long term solutions to our problems rather than boasting about aid and promised money. He is a pupet, telling half truths.

  41. I was recommended this web site by means of my cousin. I’m not sure whether or not this post is written by means of him as nobody else realize such precise approximately my trouble. You’re wonderful! Thanks!

  42. Give the chance to Nelson Chamisa can take us far away

  43. pastor chamisa 2023 not now we are sick and tired kutsvagira vamwe mabasa tomhanya nezviripo

  44. Pastor tell that person who wants to give you that 15b to keep it up to 2023 haaa ipapo munopinda hatiregi kukuvhoterai but as for now chimboshandai pamuri ipapo pekuva MDC acting president panokufitai Pastor
