MDC secretary general, Douglas Mwonzora is said to be reconsidering his challenge for the party's top job. Reports say he now wants to contest for the vice president position.

Mwonzora said :“The issue of our congress has attracted so much attention some of it from undesirable elements. But it is also important to note that it has attracted attention from Zimbabweans because the MDC is a national institution. I have not been nominated yet for any position. However, what I can tell you for now is that I will be making an announcement on the issue in the next few days."
