Zimbabwe opposition official denies resignation claims

Harare-FORMER MDC Vice President Morgen Komichi has dismissed as fake reports that he has resigned from the country’s main opposition.

This follows reports circulating on various platforms that he had resigned from the Nelson Chamisa led opposition party.

In a letter purportedly wrote by Komichi, dated 6th March, the politician says he has resigned from the party because of frustration with the direction the MDC has taken in the past nine months since the congress of May 2019 in Gweru.

Komichi mentions lack of accountability to party funds, and says the party has been hijacked for personal benefit, betraying the philosophy of founding President Morgan Tsvangirai.

Komichi expressed ignorance about the origins of the letter.

“People just write stuff, my brother. I’m not even sure where the letter is coming from. No, that’s not me,” said Komichi

Komichi has been in the MDC for over ten years and has been persecuted for the party’s cause and was arrested several times including at after the 2018 elections when he announced that results from the Zimbabwe Election Commission were fake.

The MDC is currently facing one of the worst fissures since the death of veteran leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
