MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa sensationally claimed yesterday that former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai was killed by ruling Zanu PF functionaries.
Tsvangirai died in February this year after a long battle with cancer.
He had been diagnosed with the disease in 2016.
Addressing party supporters in the dormitory town of Chitungwiza yesterday, Chamisa alleged Zanu PF had a hand in the death of the MDC founding president.
“Now, I want to say it publicly: I have never told you that there are people who connived to kill Tsvangirai in the vain hope that they would have killed the struggle as well, not knowing that they were rekindling a brighter flame that will consume dictatorship in Zimbabwe,” he said.
“Why did you kill him only to shed crocodile tears…? I was trained by Tsvangirai and he showed me the way hence it was not difficult for me to see their hand when Zanu PF attempted to dictate the leadership question in our party,” added Chamisa.
The MDC Alliance leader also claimed there were informers in Zanu PF who were feeding him with information.
“I got the information from inside Zanu PF because it is leaking like a sieve. They are defeated, divided, disillusioned, distracted, panicking and hopeless.
“So they told me that they wanted to have so-and-so to become the leaders (of the MDC) so that the party becomes weaker. But we were watching them, and we said we were not going to waste our time because Tsvangirai had shown us the way…” Daily News
