Former Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) Chitungwiza chairman Alexio Msundire faces political oblivion after voters rejected his bid to represent them at the 2018 elections.
Msundire was sacked as provincial chairman in 2014 after rebelling against party president Morgan Tsvangirai in a failed palace coup instigated by the Central Intelligence Organization under black operations known as ‘Spiderweb’ and ‘Blackhawk’.
Msundire survived expulsion from MDC-T after apologising to the party president and was allowed to remain an ordinary member and Member of Parliament for Zengeza East. However, party members now accuse Msundire of disrupting party activities in the province using officials he set up when he was still chairman in a bid to get nomination to stand for parliamentary elections on a party ticket at elections scheduled for 2018.
Party members rejected the attempt, accusing Msundire of having known CIO links. Msundire attempted to join the so-called MDC Renewal Team but was kicked out over allegations that he was a state agent.
MDC-T supporters in Zengeza East recently petitioned local senator James Makore to intervene and help find a solution amid claims that Msundire was running parallel structures that were destabilising genuine party programmes in the area.
The party supporters want an opportunity to select a candidate who will match the expected Zanu PF candidate, Dr Obadiah Moyo, chief executive officer of Chitungwiza general hospital, who has been using his job and state resources to campaign.
Comment from Msundire is still being sought.
