The main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) took a giant step towards resolving the vicious infighting in the party precipitated by leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s absence as he focuses on his battle with colon cancer in a hospital in South Africa.
On Tuesday a statement released by party spokesman Obert Gutu confirmed that “The National Standing Committee met today in the context of developments in the party.”
“The meeting was held to bring order, sanity, traction and direction as the party builds momentum for victory in the upcoming 2018 elections. The National Standing committee, chaired by Acting President Hon. Advocate Nelson Chamisa, resolved that there be an extraordinary National Executive Committee meeting at 1000hrs on Thursday at Harvest House,” Gutu wrote.
“This will be followed by the National Council at midday to resolve and deal with all the issues to do with party cohesion and hygiene. The meeting was attended by 11 out of 15 National Standing Committee members,” Gutu added. Nehanda Radio
