History has a nasty way of repeating itselfâ€”and this may be the case for the Morgan Tsvangirai led MDC-T ahead of the partyâ€™s national congress this May.
Local political analysts have predicted that with the bickering and a name calling amongst the partyâ€™s so called heavy weights the party is heading for yet another split.
Riding on a wave of serious factions that are alleged to have already created serious contention between Mr. Nelson Chamisa and Mr. Elias Mudzuri who are both eyeing the partyâ€™s National Organising Secretary post, a local analyst Mr. Gabriel Chaibva said the MDC-T Congress will see a lot of ideological confrontations.
Another analyst, Mr. Stephen Chidawanyika said the MDC-T is failing to outgrow itself from a being a protest movement to a serious political party and the fact that its handlers are seeing reality following wikileaks the party is heading for the history books faster than it came into life.
â€œThe MDC-T has failed to mature into a real political party. It will not be surprising if the party splits again,â€ said Mr. Chidawanyika.
Reports of jostling for positions in the MDC-T are coming through to the media with indications that the party’s Organising Secretary Elias Mudzuri may be shown the door on allegations of incompetence, while the partyâ€™s youths are frothing for being in charge ofÂ all the 10 provinces meaning all the provincial chairpersons are heading for the political dust beans.
