MDC red army marching to hell

In “With or without Khupe, MDC red army will march on” Whitlaw Mugwiji provokes elementary questions about political analysis and objectivity.

It is common cause nobody is bigger than the party and the demise of iconic founding President Morgan Tsvangirai nobody dared challenge in an…

Douglas Mwonzora

If the MDC-T suddenly holds extra ordinary congress, MDC Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora will be reduced to an ordinary card carrying member before that is done, it has been argued.

That is, Morgan Tsvangirai’s party.…

Thokozani Khupe

ZIMBABWEANS watched in horror this week shocking scenes of violence as rowdy MDC-T youths attacked the party co-vice-president Thokozani Khupe and secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora and threatened to torch a thatched hut in which they had sought refuge after being assaulted. Khupe and Mwonzora on arrival at the burial of MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s burial in Buhera had to scurry for cover as youths chanting “(Nelson) Chamisa, Chamisa” (the party’s acting president) jeered, heckled, manhandled and threw stones at them.
