Heads roll at Harvest House

Heads roll at Harvest House
Published: 13 June 2018
MDC-T faction leader Mr Nelson Chamisa has announced new appointments to some positions in his camp, sidelining those who appear to have opposed his controversial ascendancy. His leadership as MDC-T leader is yet to be decided by the courts after co-vice president Dr Thokozani Khupe declared herself the legitimate MDC-T leader following the death of the opposition party's founding president, Mr Morgan Tsvangirai in February.

The biggest victim of Mr Chamisa's new appointments appeared to be Mr Luke Tamborinyoka – the long-time MDC-T presidential spokesperson.

Mr Tamborinyoka served as presidential spokesperson for Mr Tsvangira and continued in the same capacity after Mr Chamisa took over the reins at Harvest House.
Mr Tamborinyoka has now been replaced by Dr Nkululeko Sibanda.

A Tamborinyoka sympathiser defended Mr Chamisa's action, saying the ex-spokesman could not continue in his job after throwing his hat into the ring for the Goromonzi West parliamentary seat.

Other appointments include that of Mr Jameson Timba (election liaison officer and president's chief election agent), Ms Grace Kwinjeh (representative to Brussels and European Union), Driden Kunaka (representative to Australia), Yvonne Mahlunge (representative to the United Kingdom), Ralph Black (party representative to the United States of America), Austin Moyo (party representative to the Republic of South Africa) and Mathula Lusinga (party representative to the African Union, East Africa and Central Africa).

Long-time MDC-T activist Mr Elliot-PFebve was named business trade attaché to Europe, Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Mr Chamisa hinted that further appointments would be made to cover SADC, COMESA, North Africa, West Africa and the Middle East.

Ms Kwinjeh yesterday commented on her appointment saying: "Thank you Advocate Nelson Chamisa for the faith you have placed in me to once again represent our party and movement in the European Union."
