The judicially constituted MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe has recalled the MDC Alliance’s Gwanda mayor Jastone Mazhale and 8 councillors in Bulawayo for supporting MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa.
By-elections will be held for the vacant council seats on December 5 after the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) suspended a ban on elections that was imposed earlier this year to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The MDC Alliance councillors recalled by the MDC-T from Bulawayo are as follows:
1. Zana Clayton of Ward 19
2. Maposa Tinevimbo of Ward 21
3. Rafamoyo Ernest of Ward 20
4. Mabuto Donald of Ward 9
5. Kambarami Tinashe of Ward 3
6. Mlilo Lilian of Ward 12
7. Mlalazi Concilia of Ward 18
8. Hlabano Norman of Ward 26
The development follows the recall of 21 MDC Alliance MPs in Harare and several councillors, among them Mayor Herbert Gomba and his deputy Enoch Mupamawonde.
