Two rival groups of MMD cadres this morning clashed at the party secretariat resulting in the destruction of party property and one of the buses used to ferry the cadres to the secretariat.
The clashes happened when a group of cadres supporting the holding of the party convention were bused to the secretariat with the intention of presenting a petition to press for holding of the convention, only to be met by the other group of cadres which had been stationed at the party secretariat.
Police, who only arrived at scene later, fired teargas canisters to disperse cadres and managed to apprehend two of those involved.
Meanwhile aggrieved MMD Members have vowed to continue putting pressure on the party leadership until the convention is held before April 2016 in line with party constitution.
