(TALKZIMBABWE) MDC-T provincial leader says Tsvangirai is a ‘Supersonic Snake’

The current MDC-T Provincial Chairman in Manicaland Julius Magarangoma has likened party president, Morgan Tsvangirai, to a “supersonic snake” for imposing candidates on the people of Makoni Central.

Tsvangirai imposed Dr Simba Makoni as the MDC-T candidate for Makoni Central, asking Patrick Sangandira, its parliamentary candidate for Makoni Central, to withdraw his candidature. This was the deal with the Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn leader.

“Our Party is now being controlled by Supersonic Snake. It’s shameful!!!!,” Magarangoma wrote on his Facebook profile on Monday, describing Tsvangirai.

The statement attracted criticism from MDC-T supporters. Andrew Dhungare Mutonhodza wrote: “Shefu handiti ndimi chair so munoda kuti tiite sei by the way with ths circus i bet zanu pf wil win dangamvura chikanga”.

Another supporter, Moses Musekiwa wrote, “again losing the plot in makoni central.pliz helpus lord”.

Tsvangirai’s imposition of candidates has attracted a lot of criticism from within his party only a few days to the national harmonised elections.

It has also widened cracks between the national and the provincial leadership of the MDC-T party.

Tsvangirai has been accused of failing to uphold the party’s constitution by making unilateral declarations, and there have been concerns that he would not be able to respect the country’s constitution if he becomes president.

Efforts to get the two MDC-T leadership groups together have failed. Tsvangirai’s advisers Alex Magaisa, Luke Tamborinyoka and Cecil Zvidzai made a futile attempt to organise a meeting between provincial leaders and party president Tsvangirai at a motel in Rusape prior to addressing a rally in Vengere Township in Mutare. The provincial leadership refused to meet with Tsvangirai.

The provincial leadership also refused to attend the MDC-T Rusape rally, leaving Tsvangirai to be accompanied by his wife Elizabeth and MDC-T spokesman, Douglas Mwonzora.

This is a blow to the MDC-T leader and party who are trying desperately to match the resurgent popularity of Zanu-PF in many areas that they previously dominated.

These divisions will spell disaster for the MDC-T at the harmonised elections slated for next week.
