Ailing Tsvangirai appoints 40-year-old Chamisa as acting MDC-T president

Zimbabwe's main opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, is critically ill in a South African hospital and his supporters should "brace for the worst", a party source with knowledge of his condition said on Tuesday.

"He is unwell; I last spoke with him on Wednesday morning".

Mr. Tsvangirai, is in a South African hospital, suffering from colon cancer for the past two years, and has several times since had to take to Twitter to discount reports of his death. "Nelson Chamisa as the acting president of the party by operation of the constitution until the President's return", said Tsvagirai's spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka in a Facebook post. But other party members are disputing that, saying deputy Elias Mudzuri, who was acting leader before the announcement, or deputy Thokozani Khupe is acting leader or rightful heir.

Zimbabweans head for the polls in the next few months.

Analysts say if not urgently addressed, the infighting could seriously affect the party's preparations and chances of winning the election.

Tsvangirai has led the MDC since its formation in 1999 and the party has posed the most formidable challenge to the ruling Zanu-PF.

An opposition alliance has endorsed Tsvangirai as its presidential candidate.

"President Morgan Tsvangirai has with effect from today, 7 February 2018, affirmed Vice President Hon".

Mnangagwa came to power in November after a de facto military coup against 93-year-old Robert Mugabe, the former guerrilla leader who had run Zimbabwe since independence from Britain in 1980.
