The Speaker of the National Assembly, Advocate Jacob Mudenda has today expelled nine legislators from the MDC-Alliance after Thokozani Khupe-led MDC-T party wrote to him to fire them.
Adv Mudenda said the decision to expel them followed a letter written by MDC-T secretary-general Mr Douglas Mwonzora that they be recalled. The nine are Messrs Amos Chibaya, (Mkoba) Murisi Zwizwai (Harare Central) Happymore Chidziva (Highfield West).
Others are Proportionate Representatives Bacilia Majaya, Macharairwa Mugidho, Virginia Muradzikwa, Annah Myambo, Francisca Ncube and Nomathemba Ndlovu.
The nine legislators bring to 13, the number of MPs that have so far been recalled by the MDC T after the Supreme Court conferred legitimacy to the opposition party led by Dr Thokozani Khupe.
The power hungry Khupe’s move has angered the majority of Zimbabweans who voted for MDC Alliance MPs in 2018 elections. She fielded her MPs under the MDC-T name and Zimbabweans rejected all of them. In the presidential poll, Khupe performed dismally. She polled 45 000 votes only. Her party, MDC-T, failed to win even a single local government seat.
