Chamisa to pocket $720,000 from parties handout

Disputed MDC Acting President Nelson Chamisa

THE Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader Nelson Chamisa is alleged to walk away $720 000 richer as he is set to pocket 20% of the $3 596 400 which the is expected to get from the Treasury under the Political Parties Finance Act.

The MDC will get the share from the $12 million allocated to political parties by the Treasury while Zanu-PF will get $8 403 600.

This comes of the back of the two political parties being the only one to amassed more than 5% votes in the July 2018 elections, as stated in the budget.

However, party insiders say Chamisa is likely to get 20% of the total amount to be received since the same was done to former president, the late Morgan Tsvangirai from 2015 until the time he succumbed to cancer in 2018.

A source within the opposition movement told 263Chat that during the time that Tsvangirai became ill, the party agreed to give him 20% of the money from the treasury for his upkeep.
