Zimbabwe: Will The Real Opposition Constitution Reveal Itself?
Nelson Chamisa's appointment was certainly quick, much faster than could have been achieved had the opposition MDC-T party called for an extraordinary congress to elect Morgan Tsvangirai's successor. This step, however, has created controversy, with one faction of the party's leadership arguing that Chamisa's appointment was constitutional and two others, led by Thokozani Khupe and Elias Mudzuri claiming that it was not. Now the factional squabbles are slowly pushing the country's main opposition party towards the possibility of another split, as the three vice presidents are fiercely battling each other to replace Tsvangirai. As if this is not enough, the party constitution itself is nowhere to be found.
