Tsvangirai puts Chamisa in charge of MDC

Tsvangirai puts Chamisa in charge of MDC”

Tsvangirai, 65, has been in and out of the hospital since disclosing in June 2016 that he had colon cancer. "He is critically ill and we should brace for the worst", the source said.

The MDC-T is the major opposition political party to emerge in post-independence Zimbabwe and has posed the stiffest challenge to the ruling ZANU-PF party.

Tsvangirai spokesman Luke Tamborinyoka said the MDC leader was "stable but the nation should keep on praying".

In the coming elections, the MDC candidate will be up against Mr. Mugabe's replacement, Emmerson Mnangagwa, who has seen something of a rise in popularity since the military ousted his predecessor after nearly four decades in power.

Internecine feuding over Tsvangirai's successor is threatening to tear the party apart ahead of crucial general elections in which new Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has vowed a clean sweep.

Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai who is now hospitalised in South Africa remains unwell but stable, his spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka says. But other party members are disputing that, saying deputy Elias Mudzuri, who was acting leader before the announcement, or deputy Thokozani Khupe is acting leader or rightful heir.

Mr. Tsvangirai was one of the most vocal opponents of former president Robert Mugabe's government, suffering beatings and imprisonment for his activism.

The opposition infighting could come as a gift to Mnangagwa as he seeks to stay in power.
