MDC property attached http://nehandaradio.com/2018/04/26/mdc-property-attached/ http://nehandaradio.com/2018/04/26/mdc-property-attached/#comments Thu, 26 Apr 2018 14:57:36 +0000 http://nehandaradio.com/?p=175926 Several months ago the MDC headquarters was left empty after the Deputy Sheriff pounced on the opposition party’s offices and seized property in order to settle a $108 000 debt owed to one of the party’s former employees.

It certainly has not been a good week for the MDC and its president Nelson Chamisa. Hardly a day after the MDC failed to get a court ruling stopping its former vice president Thokozani Khupe from using the party’s name, yesterday the country’s largest opposition party was further hit by more bad news.
