Ncube brands Khupe a 'bad follower'

BULAWAYO - The MDC Alliance has laid into beleaguered MDC vice president Thokozani Khupe describing her as a politician who lacks wisdom and leadership qualities.

MDC Alliance spokesperson Welshman Ncube told thousands of Midlands State University students over the weekend that in the last 12 months, Khupe had exhibited disturbing signs of a bad leader.

“I want to say one last thing about my sister. I don’t know (kuti arikurasika papi chaipo, ulahleka ngaphi) where she is losing the plot,” he said amid huge cheers from the students who vowed to vote for the MDC Alliance in the forthcoming elections.

“There has never been a good leader anywhere in history who has been a bad follower. To be a good leader, you must first be a good follower. For the last 12 months, she failed to be a good follower” said Ncube in reference to Khupe.

Ncube said MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa has proven to possess qualities of a capable leader.

“This young man (Chamisa) has been a good follower from day one when we formed the MDC. When his time came, when his generation time came he had been a good follower, he must therefore be a good leader.”

Ncube told the students that losing to Zanu PF in the next elections was not an option, adding that there is not a single revolution in history which was not led by young people.

“If Zanu PF wins in the next elections, God forbid, you will all be without jobs and we can’t afford that. We therefore must make sure that 2018 will not be the year in which history refused to turn.  We must make history turn. We must ride on the generational consensus and ensure that the generational ideals are fulfilled.”

What is a generational consensus? How was it derived? Last time I checked Zimbabwe was an inter-generational country

A new one that - good follower = good leader heh? Village or pub politics? Never mind that the good follower didn't follow the constitution to get to where he is now? Very interesting....

Saggitar shut up. Khupe for the past 12 months didnt follow party rules and she was busy rseting in Bulawayo nhasi she wants to grab the hot seat. To hell with your constitutionalsm takachinja mupaka MDC is now working based on majority consensus asingade buda but tosara tiri majority yenyika still. Wega hauzvioni kuti Chamisa anodiwa nevanhu. Follow Khupe if you want to be a loser hlaa.

A good leader defends and upholds the constitution of his party. This rubble rouser boy who calls himself Nelson cannot be trusted-he violated, in fact he raped the constitution of MDC and he is thinks it's cool shred or mutilate such a document.

Pro- Sagitarr sit down please. which constitutional clause did Chamisa raped. Everything that happened in the MDC is constitutionally and politically correct. he failed to uphold the constitution only in the eyes of the myopic people like you who rely on the herald and ZBC to make their opinion. take your time to go through the MDc constitution

Prof Ncube is right as he is talking from experience. His fingers were burnt in 2005 after arguing with Mr Tsvangirai. Now the professor is more wiser and careful in his political dealings. He is now riding the winning horse by the name of Nelson Chamisa.
