Nelson Chamisa, MDC Alliance leader has given a hint concerning the change in name of his party as vultures circle on the country’s main opposition party ahead of crucial by-elections that might change Zimbabwe’s political landscape.
48 vacancies in the Parliament and over 80 in local authorities were created the by Douglas Mwonzora led-MDC onslaught against the MDC Alliance.
In order to obtain the controversial regulations to reduce the spread of Covid-19, By-elections remain suspended, but the constitution says the polls must be held 90 days after a vacancy is declared.
Last week, the MDC-T added to the political intrigue when it said it will contest the by-elections under the MDC Alliance barrier once they are called, this move was described by some as a potential killer punch for Chamisa’s party.
Yesterday, the former ICT minister, however, insisted they were “10 steps ahead” of the opposition and for the first time gave a hint that the MDC Alliance could be undergoing massive rebranding.
