MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora has hit back at allegations that he funded a High Court application by a party official from Gokwe which resulted in the nullification of president Chamisa’s authority.
Mwonzora’s detractors in the party have often accused him of being working with the ruling ZANU PF party to destroy the MDC from within.
