An article written by the Zimdiaspora.com editor, Tsvangirai Executive Wants Funds From UK shows that that the forces of retrogression in the MDC-T are still fighting from inside the party, both in Harare and in the UK.
A letter drafted by the acting Treasurer Dr Tapiwa Mashakada to the MDC-UK was apparently leaked from Harare to rebels in the UK, who in turn passed it to Zimdiaspora.com before the MDC-UK chairman even saw the letter.
The rebels in the UK are angered, not only that their attempted coup has fallen flat, but also that the two branches that have have been the centres of UK rebels, Oxford and South Beds Luton, have been suspendend, and that party has now resolved to recognise its diaspora structures as full structures, without the two rebel branches, or until they have been restructured.
'Renewal' already showing insecurity before it is even launched... its Masvingo representative Jeffryson Chitando claiming pictures taken at Mkoba Stadium on Sunday were taken last year, and local MP Settlement Chikwinya, who has joined the rebels, sent a false report to the Newsday that there was violence at the rally.
A former chairman of the MDC UK and Ireland, Jonathan Chawora, says he is not surprised at the reported MDC-T dossier which claims that Zanu (PF) spent $10m on operations to soil Tsvangirai's name so that he could lose the last election. Chawora however said he could not imagine Roy Bennett working with Zanu (PF), though he could not be so sure about the others.
Three Civic Society organisations in Zimbabwe yesterday petitioned Parliament to stop the breach of the Constitution of Zimbabwe that would be caused if the Electoral Amendment Bill, now before Parliament, were to be debated without including the public, political parties and civil society organisations.
The organisations want Parliament to include stakeholders in the ongoing discussions which seek to amend the Electoral Act [Chapter 2:13] ("the principal Act") and align the Act with provisions of the new Constitution adopted last year.
