Tensions amongst MDC Alliance members continue to escalate following a bloody conformation that occurred in Chitungwiza over the weekend. As preparations for the MDC congress slated for 24 to 26 May are underway, branch, ward and districts held their congresses and provincial congresses are expected to start soon, the country is surely expected to see the in-house fighting reach its zenith.
