THE MDC-T has appointed Elliot Pfebve to reorganise the MDC-UK and Ireland in a move that would plunge the embattled province into further turmoil.
This was revealed by Pfebve himself when he was given a platform to address MDC-T supporters in Oxford last week.
“I wish to inform you that I now have the mandate to reach out on all MDC-T branches across the UK and Ireland,” Pfebve said without disclosing who mandated him.
He added: “I am a very loving person, I would be reaching out to talk about progress. The idea is to develop our party so that we get ready for the 2018 elections”.
The announcement by Pfebve comes a week after the MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai visited the United Kingdom where he spent much time with Tonderai Samanyanga and his group.
It remains to be seen how Samanyanga would take Pfebve’s announcement in view that he has insisted that he remains an elected MDC-UK and Ireland despite the adoption of a constitution that disbanded external provinces.
Samanyanga last month told The Zimdiaspora.com that: “We remain in office and we are operating as a province. We have challenged the adoption of the constitution that seeks to disband us and the leadership has acknowledged out challenge”.
Pfebve who is the founding member of the MDC lost the Bindura North elections in the July 31 harmonised elections.
The MDC-UK and Ireland has since its inception never functioned as a progressive and united political organisation. The province has been blighted with squabbles and bickering. The province also broke a record when it failed to account for £57 000 that had been raised from party members.
