I Am Only Waiting To Receive A Formal Letter Of Reinstatement From Zanu-PF: Mliswa

Independent legislator for Norton, Temba Mliswa has reportedly said that he is ready to join Zanu-PF once all the formalities have been completed. Mliswa is reported to have revealed this in an interview with the state-owned newspaper, the Herald. Mliswa is quoted as saying:

The Central Committee Resolution of the party which was adopted at the just ended Extraordinary Congress stipulates that all affected party members should be reinstated into the party and I am one of those affected.

As of now, I am only waiting to receive a formal letter of reinstatement from the party leadership and I become a member again.

The outspoken Mliswa was once the provincial chairperson for Zanu-PF Mashonaland West province before he was kicked out from the party in December 2014. However, if Mliswa rejoins Zanu-PF before the end of his term, he will lose his Norton seat, because when he won the seat he was registered as an independent. This is because of the “Jonathan Moyo Clause” in the 2013 Constitution under Section 129(1)(l) which states that where a person was not a member of a political party when he became an MP he loses his seat when he joins a political party.
