Former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change today said it had no plans to hold an extra-ordinary congress following its humiliating defeat in the 31 July elections. Its congress is due in 2016. “The issue of an extra-ordinary congress to consider leadership renewal was brought up at the National Council meeting held at the President (Tsvangirai)’s Highlands home but was immediately shot down by key members. It was roundly and vociferously shot down by the youth and the women’s assembly leaders. That idea will not survive. It is dying a natural death,” a national executive member said.
