The MDC T led by Acting president Dr Thokozani Khupe has reportedly shelved the Matebeland North and Midlands South nominations ostensibly because of COVID-19. ,

Rattled by the unexpected defeat by a seemingly novice and not-frontrunner Mr Abedinigo Bhebhe . The MDC-T reportedly shelved this weeks nomination for Matebeleland North and Midlands South Provinces citing fear of covid-19 as well as police interdiction to the ongoing nominations .

Efforts to seek clarification on the continuation of the normimation process from Spokesperson  Mr Phugeni fell by wayside as he did not respond to the questions send to him .

However , insiders within the the court resurrected party who refused to be named for fear of victimization told this reporter that , the trio of Madam Khupe , Mr Douglas Mwonzora and Mr Morgan Komichi were shocked by Mr Bhebhe surprise entry into the race to which he has bagged Bulawayo .

” Organ Bhebhe nomination rattled the three Madam Khupe , Doug and VaMudzuri . Bhebhe is level headed plus the majority of supporters are considering him completely detached from ZANU PF. There is a price to pay for those who are seen as ZANU PF implants,” said the source.

Analysts who spoke to this reporter argue that , Mr Bhebhe is set to continue surprising on the political front.

Political analyst Mr Frank Chauke had this to say, ” The last minute entry of Mr Bhebhe into the MDCT presidential race was laughed off by many . However it has proven many wrong including me . The projections were that Douglas Mwonzora would sail through . As things stand now , the front-runners are indeed shocked . I hear the whole nomination process has been shelved . Something is not adding up there . I suspect political chickening,” he said.

Another political analyst , Mr Malcolm Ziki said ,” There is no doubt that Bhebhe might surprise many in this race . From his fights with his fellow leaders , he sounded very true to the MDC founding values . He sounds a unifier . From the leaders who are gannering for the top post, most of them are tainted and are considered ZANU PF proteges.
