Mnangagwa was beaten by Blessing Chebundo in a parliamentary election at one point in time.

Thokozani Khupe said ( about Douglas Mwonzora ) : “The failure by the Mwonzora-led MDC Alliance to get candidates and the subsequent en masse withdrawal of candidates is a clear indication that their outfit is unattractive, unelectable and their politics of appeasing the current Zanu PF regime stinks to high heavens. Playing the blame game will not assist him as most if not all Zimbabweans are clear that Mwonzora’s outfit will not get their votes in the upcoming by-elections.

Alexander Rusero said ( about Douglas Mwonzora ) : "Mwonzora is just an accident of politics and a spent force, he has nothing to offer, so the election is a real test for Zanu-PF's newly elected provincial leaders' ability to mobilize for 2023. The new dispensation does not know the culture of elections and still has the 2018 election hangover so this by-election is more about them as the incumbent," External link

They have legislators in Parliament who are not contributing to that debate on electoral reforms, they denounced the POLAD platform for engagement which is an opportunity for political leaders to deliberate on issues that need attention. Remember, they are also not ready because of their squabbles with Mwonzora's MDC-T about their names. So the reality is they have shot themselves in the foot. They should know there is no second place in politics," External link

Douglas Mwonzora said : "For us, the by-elections are a bygone; we did not do well but we are not perturbed by that," "As I said in one of my tweets, quoting Nelson Mandela, a saint is a sinner who keeps on trying. We are not worried that we failed because this world is full of successful people who once failed. If you go to Abraham Lincoln in the United States, if you go to Robert Mugabe, if you go to Emmerson Mnangagwa, to Nelson Mandela, all these leaders at one point in time, failed in their lives. Mnangagwa was beaten by Blessing Chebundo in a parliamentary election at one point in time.

Douglas Mwonzora said ( about Nelson Chamisa ) : "In 2000 it scored very well, almost getting a majority in Parliament," "In 2005 it went down, lost its parliamentary advantage, and I think lost about 11 seats. Then in 2008, the MDC went up, winning the presidency, winning Parliament, and all the Councils. In 2013 we went down. In 2018 when we were together we did very well and our presidential candidate, Nelson Chamisa did very well in the presidential election. Of course, he thinks that it is only his.

During the interviews, panelists from MDC-T, myself included and Zanu-PF, were required to score candidates out of 5 depending on how they would have responded to a question. Therefore on the basis of partisanship alone, it was not possible that we singularly decide the outcome of the interviews," External link
