Chamisa to con­sol­i­date his grip

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Zim­bab­wean op­po­si­tion leader Nel­son Chamisa is re­port­edly work­ing to­wards con­sol­i­dat­ing his po­si­tion within the Move­ment for Demo­cratic Change, just a few months be­fore the party's elec­tive con­fer­ence. Ac­cord­ing to NewsDay, Chamisa’s plan was to build a ‘pub­lic swell of sup­port’ around his lead­er­ship in or­der to make it dif­fi­cult for any po­ten­tial chal­lengers to con­test for his po­si­tion. Party in­sid­ers were quoted say­ing that Chamisa was also work­ing on con­sol­i­dat­ing his po­si­tion within party struc­tures. "Chamisa is drum­ming up sup­port and rav­ing his pop­u­lar­ity both within and out­side the struc­tures of the party, mainly to cre­ate an in­tim­ida­tory fence that will de­ter other mem­bers of the party from chal­leng­ing him at congress," an un­named se­nior party of­fi­cial was quoted as say­ing.
