Bad news for Zimbabwean main opposition party

The Zimbabwean economy have gone to the dogs and it doesn't seem like they is hope in that country. The major opposition party, The Movement for Democratic Change – Tsvangirai (MDC–T, leaders have been fighting over leadership position. The Movement for Democratic Change which was formed by Morgan Tsvangirai in 2004 have suffered in fight since the beginning. This infight is giving the ZANU Pf the power to stay in power for ever

MDC-Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa, and MDC-T, led initially by Thokozani Khupe which is made up of Ndebeles and now by Douglas Mwonzora. Though some Ndebele councillors reject Mwonzora on tribal line.

Last week, Douglas Mwonzora, who is a lawyer, politician and senator representing Movement for Democratic Change in parliament wrote to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) asking it to stop Chamisa from using both the MDC Alliance party name and MDC acronym in by-elections set for March 26.

"We are the owners of the Movement for Democratic Change name, over the years there has been so many derivatives put on it. However, the leadership of this party was defined by the Supreme Court,” read the letter by Mwonzora to Zec chairperson, Justice Priscilla Chigumba dated January 3.

Zimbabwe is going to have elections in 2023 but many people in that country still sees no free, fair elections under military rule.

Though Nelson Chamisa is very positive saying that change going to come.
