MDC-T suspends 6 Kwekwe councillors from all party activities for voting for Zanu-PF

MDC-T has suspended its six Kwekwe councillors from all party activities for putting the party’s name into disrepute after some of them reportedly voted for a Zanu-PF candidate in elections to choose a new deputy mayor for Kwekwe following the death of Aaron Sithole early this year.

MDC-T Kwekwe district had recommended that councillors Aaron Gwalazimba and Bekezela Ndlovu be recalled from council for allegedly voting for John Mapurazi of Zanu PF instead of Janet Tachirunga of the MDC-T. Speaking to NewsDay, Gwalazimba confirmed that he has been suspended from MDC-T activities and is now due to appear before a provincial disciplinary committee.

MDC-T Midlands North secretary Felix Zifunzi confirmed the suspensions. However, the councillors will continue to attend to their council duties as the party has not yet moved to remove them.
