MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora said that he will announce the dates for the party’s elective congress in the next few days amid reports he fears ouster.

MDC-T chairman Morgen Komichi, vice-president Elias Mudzuri and ordinary party member Norest Marara are reportedly planning to challenge Mwonzora for the presidency.

In an interview with source at the National Heroes Acre in the capital on Monday, Mwonzora said preparations for the congress were 65 per cent complete. He said:

I am going to announce the congress dates in a few days’ time. We are almost 65% through preparing for the congress.

We are going to invite the media when we announce the dates. We want everyone in the party to prepare for the congress. We want the best candidate to win at the congress.

Reports indicate that some MDC-T members have left the party in protest over Mwonzora’s leadership after the party performed dismally in the 26 March by-elections.

The MDC-T failed to win a single council or parliamentary seat.
