MDC Leader Nelson Chamisa. Picture: TIMESLIVE

A letter is circulating on social media supposedly from the MDC T firing Nelson Chamisa from the party. The letter addressed to Nelson Chamisa which has no signature and is incomplete reads:

Adv. Nelson Chamisa Secretary for Policy and Research 44 Nelson Mandela Ave Harare 5″‘ Floor, Harvest House Harare

Dear Sir

Re: Termination of your membership of the Party

I refer to the above matter.

I note that following the Supreme Court judgement, in MDC and Others v Elias Mashavira and Others (SC56/2020) of 31 March 2020, which ruled that you were no longer the President of the Movement for Democratic Change which was formerly led by the late Dr Morgan Tsvangirai you have continued to defy the court order.

The latest incident is when on 21 May 2020 you issued a communication to the effect that you had in your capacity as the President of the MDC Alliance Party made certain appointments and redeployments to the Party’s National Standing Committee. You could only have made these appointments as president of the party other than the Party that was referred to in the Supreme Court judgement in the case mentioned above.

In terms of clause 5.10.(a) of the constitution of the MDC party by your joining or forming another party you have automatically terminated your membership of the MDC party formerly led by the late Dr. Morgan Richard Tsvangirai.

The origin of the letter is yet to be ascertained and it is still not clear if this is just a social media hoax or not. We will update this article as new details emerge.
