The ambitious fundraising initiative by the MDC Alliance members to purchase an armoured vehicle for Nelson Chamisa is just a sideshow as the vehicle has already been purchased by a ZANU PF linked businessman.
A source within the MDC Alliance said Chamisa had been hobnobbing with a ZANU PF linked businessman who has already purchased him a luxurious armored vehicle.
“The fundraising is an attempt to cover up Chamisa’s illicit affair with a ZANU PF linked businessman (name supplied) who has already purchased an all-terrain armoured vehicle for him. Chamisa wants to hoodwink the public into believing that it’s the MDC Alliance members who purchased the vehicle when it’s a ZANU PF linked businessman,” said the source.
The source added that the fundraising was being spearheaded by Chamisa’s friend and fellow AFM pastor, Blessing Muroiwa. Muroiwa has been an opposition activist and he once contested for the Mazowe Central seat on under the MDC ticket. He has been made the face of the fundraising with the idea of double dipping for the same armoured vehicle.
According to the source, Chamisa does not want the party to know that he received a vehicle from someone who has links with ZANU PF. He wants to tell his supporters that the vehicle was purchased through members’ donations.
The source added that the fundraising initiative was being done outside the structures so that there will be no audit for the donated funds. It is believed that the funds donated for the vehicle will be converted to Chamisa’s personal use and some of the money will be given to Muroiwa.
The source added that some MDC Alliance leaders were aware of Chamisa’s links with ZANU PF linked people and they are planning to arraign him before the National Standing Committee to explain himself. The source further said that most of the MDC Alliance members were worried about Chamisa’s continued links with ZANU PF members. Previously he conducted business with former President Robert Mugabe’s Gushungo Dairy.
Efforts to get a comment form Chamisa were futile as his mobile phones were not reachable.
