MDC Alliance Slams Mwonzora’s “Shallow” Shadow Cabinet
24 August 2021
The MDC Alliance has accused legislators who became MPs on its ticket and dumped the party for the MDC-T led by Douglas Mwonzora in order to retain their positions of being sellouts who sacrificed the electorate for selfish gains.
This comes after Mwonzora last week announced a 26-member shadow cabinet and 10 Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution.

MDC Alliance's Felix Magalela Sibanda told NewsDay that it was a waste of time for the Mwonzora faction to appoint a Shadow Cabinet when it had no following. Sibanda said:
The so-called appointees are opportunists and Mwonzora is trying to cause confusion on the part of the electorate.
Dube, who claims to be a legal mind, was elected into office on an MDC Alliance ticket in Gweru, where people are now labelling him a sell-out.
They are all opportunists looking for power and we are not worried about them.
We are not surprised by these opportunists. The MDC-T has no followers and Mwonzora’s legitimacy was only directed by the courts.
Sibanda claimed the so-called Shadow Cabinet had exposed that Mwonzora had no qualified people to lead government departments and portfolios.
The MDC-T Shadow Cabinet include party chairman Morgen Komichi (Defence and War Veterans), Vincent Tsvangirai (Youth, Sports and Culture), Khalipani Phugeni (ICT), Tapiwa Mashakada (Finance and Economic Development), Yvonne Musarurwa (Environment) and Brian Dube (Foreign Affairs).
The MDC-T list also has Peter Moyo (State Security), Ruth Labode (Health), and Tichivanani Mavetera (Transport), among others.
