Harare-Zimbabwe opposition MDC-T leader Thokozani Khupe appointed Manasa Tsvangirai, young brother of the late Morgan Tsvangirai as party national secretary for elections.
Announcing the appointment MDC-T national secretary General Douglas Mwonzora said the party’s national standing committee had resolved to appoint Manasa to fill vacant positions left by members who crossed the floor to a rival faction MDC Alliance.
Tsvangirai who was not in active politics during the days of his late brother – comes at a time the MDC factions are fighting to control party properties.
Making a return to the contested party headquarters Harvest House for the first time Thokozani Khupe since Tsvangirai’s death explained her relationship with the late leader.
“I had a very good working relationship with my president. I had deputized him for 12 years. I worked with him for 26 years. Yes of course there was a problem when we were attacked in Bulawayo. The president whilst seated in this chair (at Harvest House) apologised about what happened in Bulawayo,” said Khupe.
Khupe and three others were in 2017 severely bashed at the party’s Bulawayo provincial offices by party youths allegedly sent by Tsvangirai after they spurned the MDC Alliance signing ceremony in Harare.
