Zimbabwean opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party officials accused of plotting to oust Nelson Chamisa from the party's leadership have reportedly been given "final warnings", ahead of the national elective conference next year. According to Daily News, MDC insiders said Chamisa saved the accused officials, who included party general secretary, Douglas Mwonzoro, and deputy president Elias Mudzuri, from being expelled. MDC spokesperson Jacob Mafume confirmed the development, but did not mention any names, the report said. The two senior officials were accused of planning to grab power from Chamisa and causing divisions within the party. They were also accused of secretly meeting with the country's chief justice Luke Malaba, asking for forgiveness after MDC lawmakers booed him during the swearing in ceremony of parliamentary speaker Jacob Mudenda and other presiding officers in September. Meanwhile, a video posted on social media on Monday showed party lawmakers dressing down Mudziri in public "for having attended a parliamentary function at State House", a Herald report said. The report said that the meeting at State House sought to fulfil parliamentary procedures which required that National Assembly and Senate presiding officers present themselves to the President on assuming their duties.But speaking largely in Shona, the lawmakers called the MDC vice president a "sellout", as the MDC had refused to endorse Emmerson Mnangagwa's presidency.
