1] Around the 20th of May, the 2014 #NationalCouncil of the MDC-T petitioned the holding of a #NationalCouncil meeting to discuss the infamous #CovidRuling and the way forward.

Predictably, #Mwonzora rubbished the calls for the meeting & even demanded that it be suspended.
2] Regardless of #Mwonzora's whistle in the wind, the #NC meeting went ahead.

It subsequently made resolutions, key amongst them, cautioning DM to stop speaking on their behalf & acting unilaterally.

A petition was signed to have DM call for a #NC meeting on the 6th of June.
3] One would observe that, since the #CovidJudgement, the 2014 #MDC-T #NC has not met.

Mwonzora has been pushing this narrative that #Khupe,#Komichi & himself can organize the EOC on their own.

Predictably, Mwonzora rubbished the NC meeting calling it illegal & inconsequential.
4] On the 2nd of May, 4 days before demanded meeting is due, #Mwonzora has awoken from his slumber.

He has decided to recognize the NC meeting & its petition.

Hiding behind MaKhupe, he has advised that the Act Pres has not sanctioned the meeting.

He's blowing hot & very cold.
5] Interestingly, the #NationalCouncil meeting observed the Covid lockdown restrictions & even asked #Mwonzora to find a safe venue for the gathering.

#Mwonzora however is now using the same Covid excuse against holding the meeting.

But who's headache is that?
6] It will be interesting to see how the authors of the petition will react.

#Mwonzora can't have his cake & eat it.

He should use his connections that got him to #Humanikwa during the lockdown.

For safety, the #Councilors will wear masks & sit two meters apart.
7] But ofcourse there is a logic to this madness.

Whereas #Mwonzora wrote a letter suspending the petitioned meeting on the 2nd of June, a day before (1 June),he had made an assurance move.

Just in case the meeting proceeds (which is likely),#Mwonzora decided to expel Chamisa.
8] There is nothing that happened on the dates mentioned in the letter to warrant this ridiculous firing of #Chamisa.

The intention is to create a stalemate against moves to have #Chamisa contest at the #EOC.

He's trying to confuse the #Councilors.
It's a "just in case" move
9] Two things are clear:

Firstly, the relationship between these two camps has irretrievably broken down.

Secondly, the #Mwonzora camp is scared of the #NationalCouncil meeting.

They can only bank on court rulings.
They have no control over structures they supposedly lead.
10] The question frequently asked is why #Chamisa had the #MDC_A #MPs go back to Parly?

One wonders, what the disengagement achieved?

Well, whereas #Mwonzora has the court rulings, #Chamisa has the political muscle.

He wanted to send a political message.
And it was received.
11] Story is, #Mwonzora has decided to engage the old #MDC-A #Principals.

The plan would be to cripple #Chamisa by claiming the name #MDC-A.

Will the former #MDC-A partners agree?

#Courts will be called in again.

#Mwonzora is pushing Chamisa big time.
How will Chamisa react?
12] Politically, there is no #MDC-A, as of 2017, to talk about without #Chamisa's MDC-T faction, #Biti's PDP faction & #ProNcube's MDC.

Only these three, which now make up the MDC-A PARTY have political capital.

The other ones, plus Khupe/Mwonzora are just an unelectable lot.
13] However, the plan would be to cripple NC & have him drop the MDC-A name.

However, politically, he needs it
It has become a brand
It has representatives everywhere

But if there's a worry out there that courts will be called in to claim the MDC-A name, they aren't misplaced.
14] However, #Chamisa needs to continue fighting the madness of giving #Khupe 111 MPs when she got 2.

She can't have 2+ million votes when she got 45000.

Equally so, those votes can't be transferred to whoever wins at the so called EOC.

They belong to #Chamisa & the #MDC-A
15] By each passing day, #Mwonzora keeps exposing himself.

He keeps dithering where it matters most.
Politics is the People!

Clearly, he is a hunter who was given a bow.
However, it has no arrows.

Even if he finds some makeshift arrow, he has no game to shoot at.

2nd of June*
