Zimbabwe Main Opposition Leader Nelson Chamisa has sensationally claimed opposition beliefs its founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai may have been killed by his Zanu PF enemies.
He warned President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his deputy Constantino Chiwenga he was not as soft-hearted as his predecessor, adding that he will not allow Zanu PF to intimidate him.
Founding member Tsvangirai succumbed to a long battle with colon cancer February this year after leading a brave fight against then President Robert Mugabe’s oppressive rule for 18 years.
“I am saying this for the first time. There are people who connived to kill our leader Morgan Tsvangirai,” MDC Alliance President Chamisa said.
“They thought that if they killed him, they would weaken the party. Little did they know that they were rekindling brighter flames that would consume them? They are shedding crocodile tears, but we know they killed him.”
He was given a state-assisted funeral by the Mnangagwa government that flew his body from South Africa where he died and further dispatched two choppers to fly it to the late popular opposition leader’s final resting place in Buhera.
MDC Founding member Morgan Tsvangirai death triggered a fierce MDC-T leadership fight, culminating in the party’s split, with faction leader Thokozani Khupe leading a breakaway faction of the MDC-T, she has successfully registered to contest next week’s presidential race using the party symbols and colours.
“They thought they would destroy the party not knowing they were rekindling the revolution. They were faking to mourn Tsvangirai.”
