The opposition MDC T led by Douglas Mwonzora is on a renewal bid to reclaim all its properties under Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) with the latest being a spoilation order seeking for the eviction of the Nelson Chamisa led party from its offices in Newtown Kwekwe, midlandsnews can report.

While party spokesperson, Witness Dube could not immediately be reached for a comment, sources within MDCT confirmed that steps to have the CCC removed from their offices in Kwekwe is currently underway without giving much details.

“It is true that CCC party is conducting its business from our offices and we have since filed for a court order to have them evicted, that is all I can say at the moment”, said a source who spoke on condition of anonymity.

A copy of the draft order filed at the Kwekwe Magistrate Courts show that MDCT is the applicant while CCC and Kwekwe Central Constituency, MP Judith Tobaiwa were cited as the first and second responded respectively in a matter that has been set down for hearing on November 28, 2022.

Terms of the final order sought reads in part, “The respondents and all those who are claiming through them are hereby ordered to give vacant possession of the property stand number 1623 Kwekwe, township, Kwekwe to the applycant MDC T.

” The respondents and anyone claiming through them be and hereby interdicted from disturbing or in anyway interfering with the Applicant’ possession of the property without a valid order”.

CCC spokesperson Fadzai Mahere said was not in a position to comment on issues still before the courts.

“We should be able to respond to your questions once the courts are done with the legal processes”, said Mahere.

In July, 2020 MDC T and MDC A youths clashed in Kwekwe over the continued use of offices by a group sympathetic to Chamisa.

There has been disputes over party offices following a Supreme Court ruling which ordered the MDC T the main component in the formation of MDC A to revert to its 2014 structures which thus made Thokazani Khupe the interim leader. Khupe was later elbowed out of MDC T by Mwonzora.
