Tsvangirai supported new dispensation, says wife

The  widow to the late opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, Elizabeth Macheka has made startling revelations that her husband supported the new dispensation led by Emmerson Mnangagwa.

This is despite the fact that Tsvangirai was the major critic of the ZANU PF administration.

Elizabeth made the revelations at the late Tsvangirai’s memorial lecture held in the capital Thursday.

“Morgan Tsvangirai supported the new dispensation, he said now Zimbabweans are free and we should let bygones be bygones,” she said.

Speculation has it that this could have been the major discussion when Mnangagwa and his deputy visited the ailing Tsvangirai at his Highlands home.

The sentiments were also echoed by the MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa who revealed that the late leader in fact sent him to attend Mnangagwa’s inauguration.

“President Tsvangirai called me when I was at court and asked me to attend the inauguration. I at first doubted the move but complied.

“I attended the inauguration because Tsvangirai had told me that he was promised a transitional government,” said Chamisa.

Tsvangirai died on February  14 2018 and Chamisa took over on the next day, in a development that caused a split in the opposition party.

Meanwhile, Macheka has also been implicated in a lot of drama with images of her in the company of unidentified man went viral on social media.

She has however distanced himself from the drama and ‘cyber-bullying.’

Meanwhile Mnangagwa joined thousands local and foreign dignitaries who paid tribute to the iconic pro-democracy proponent.

Writing on his microblogging site Twitter, Mnangagwa said: “One year after Morgan Tsvangirai left us, we remember his patriotism as well as his lifelong commitment to Zimbabwean unity and democracy. Now, more than ever, we need to work together as we build our new Zimbabwe.”
