Parliament expelled 11 Zanu-PF legislators in terms of Section 129 (1) (k) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe after the ruling party informed the National Assembly that they were no longer members of the party.
This brings the number of Zanu-PF MPs that have been expelled from Parliament to 16 after five other legislators were ejected last month. Those that were expelled yesterday are; Makhosini Hlongwane (Mberengwa East), Shadreck Mashayamombe (Harare South), Dr Daniel Shumba (Masvingo Urban), Dr Walter Mzembi (Masvingo South), Tapiwanashe Matangaidze (Shurugwi South), Wonder Mashange (Rushinga), Jappy Jaboon (Bikita South), Sarah Mahoka (Hurungwe East), Dr Paul Chimedza (Gutu South), Anastancia Ndlovu (Proportionate Representation) and Dr Samuel Undenge (Chimanimani East).
Deputy Speaker of Parliament Mabel Chinomona said Parliament had received the notification from Zanu-PF yesterday that the legislators had ceased to be members of the party. The constituencies that used to be represented by the expelled members have since been declared vacant.
