The Vice President of the Movement for Democratic change (MDC-T) Thokozani Khuphe has alleged that a group of hired MDC-T gang stormed her house at 3 AM today and stoned her house destroying furniture and two cars worth thousands of dollars.


The incident comes just after a week when Thokozani Khuphe and Douglas Mwonzora were almost burned down by a group of MDC-T Youth Militia at Morgan Tsvangirai’s burial in Buhera.

Thokozani Khuphe and Mwonzora differ with Chamisa in that they want an extraordinary congress to elect a new party leader. However‚ during the memorial service‚ attended by thousands in Harare on Monday‚ Chamisa took charge of proceedings and declared himself leader.

“We have done what is necessary to make sure that there is no leadership vacuum in the party. We did what was perfectly constitutional‚” he said amid cheers from the crowd.

Chamisa also warned that those who go against him will be expelled.

“As leaders you are like caps on a head and can be removed when the owner is fed up. So be careful‚” he barked.

The MDC T succession fight has since sucked in members of Tsvangirai’s family‚ with some siding with Chamisa and others opting between Thokozani Khuphe and Mudzuri.

At the memorial service‚ Richard Tsvangirai junior openly endorsed Chamisa as the rightful heir to his father’s role in the party. But his grandmother‚ Lydia Chibwe‚ upon arrival of her son’s corpse from South Africa in Harare‚ threatened to commit suicide if Chamisa and her daughter-in-law‚ Elizabeth‚ attended her son’s funeral wake and burial.

Chibwe refused to disembark from the hearse carrying Tsvangirai’s casket to the memorial service in Harare.

Of the three vice presidents‚ only Thokozani Khuphe was elected by the party’s congress in 2014. The other two were appointed by Tsvangirai in 2016 when he felt that Khupe had gained sufficient political capital to challenge him.
