Sipepa: Rebel Leader Without A Cause

sipepasamAnyone who reads the Zimbabwe Independent's interview with Samuel Sipepa-Nkomo who claims to be the chairman of MDC-T following the purported suspension of its leadership, would quickly conclude that he represents a confused lot.

He backs up Tendai Biti's claim, which he has since withdrawn, that election rigging was not the main problem in the last election. Sipepa-Nkomo’s estimation, clearly tainted by his current political stance, rigging contributed only 10% the election loss.

But more interesting is that he says, the party was advised not to participate in the election without the critical reforms called for by SADC, though he does not say Morgan Tsvangirai overuled it.

MDC-T Has Survived Agenda 2016 - Moyo

moyolMDC-T chairperson Lovemore Moyo has confirmed the existence of the so-called 2016 Agenda which aimed to change the party leadership by those who had not been brave enough to challenge Morgan Tsvangirai at the 2011 congress.

"There was dishonesty on the part of some of our members dating back to our congress which re-elected Morgan Tsvangirai. These individuals were not bold enough to challenge Tsvangirai at the time, but however proceeded to make it their agenda to dislodge him — the so-called 2016 Agenda," he told the Independent.

MDC US: Set Biti Record Straight

ChapondaMovement for Democratic Change United States of America (MDC-USA) Secretary Andrew Chaponda  has accused Tendai Biti of trying to rewrite history, with his latest holier than thou posturing on the fortunes of the party. 
He lays into the expelled secretary general for underhandedly writing the constitution to concentrate and usurp power into his office as Secretary General, thinking his time had come - fantasy that is now haunting him sick.
As Secretary General and chief negotiator Biti had an eye towards the 2018 elections and sold out his soul to Zanu (PF) thinking that by 2018  he would be the MDC-T leader - another fantasy now turning into a nightmare.

Broad Coalition: 0 Plus 0 Equals Zero

Raymond Motsi of the Christian Alliance of Zimbabwe, and Bishop Ancelimo Magaya, of the Grace Ablaze Ministries International, have joined Simba Makoni of Mavambo in calling for MDC-T factions ‘to cool their tensions‘.

This is strange, or maybe not-so-strange, coming only when Tendai Biti's faction has lost the political fight that he started. There are no tensions to cool anymore because there is a split; Biti has announced the formation of his party.
