Tendai Biti vows Chamisa loyalty

Tendai Biti

Tendai Biti , the MDC deputy national chair has declared his loyalty to party leader Nelson Chamisa whom he says was tasked by late founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai to finish the job of reuniting the party’s breakaway factions.

Biti was addressing party followers at Chamisa’s election ‘thank you’ rally in Chiredzi on Sunday.

The former Finance Minister who wielded more party influence than Chamisa until his shock exit to form his own People’s Democratic Party 2014 said he made the decision to track his steps back to the mainstream MDC in keeping with Tsvangirai’s wishes.

Biti, who is vying to be elected one of the three MDC vice presidents during this week’s MDC elective congress, declared his loyalty to Chamisa.

Biti’s return has not been too popular with a section of the opposition’s membership.

A group of disgruntled opposition MDC activists calling themselves ‘in Defence of Morgan Tsvangirai Legacy (DMTL)’ wants Biti and his followers barred from contesting for any leadership positions in the mainstream MDC.
