The grieving MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has appointed one of his vice presidents Welshman Ncube to act as the leader of the main opposition outfit.
The appointment comes at a time when Chamisa is still mourning the death of his mother who passed on last week.
In a statement Chamisa’ spokesperson Nkulululeko Sibanda said: “President of the MDC Alliance Advocate Nelson Chamisa has, with immediate effect, appointed Vice President Professor Welshman Ncube to act as President.
“This appointment is in line with the rotational Acting appointments of the office. Prof Ncube will act as President till advised otherwise,” reads the communique.
Chamisa lost his mother last week.
