Mnangagwa praises late Tsvangirai

Nelson Chamisa has won leadership of the opposition party, which holds the second largest number of seats in Zimbabwe's parliament.

Supporters hold photos of the late Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai during a public funeral ceremony in Harare, Zimbabwe, on February 19, 2018. Tsvangirai had been the MDC-T's only leader since its formation in 1999. "We need fair, free and credible elections this year".

Some party members are disputing Chamisa's appointment, saying Mudzuri, who was acting leader for a while as Tsvangirai underwent treatment, or Khupe is the MDC-T's acting leader or rightful heir.
