MDC-T Bulawayo province has recalled three councillors Sithabile Mataka (ward 2), Sheila Musonda (ward 8) and Tamani Moyo (ward 15) from council over alleged links to expelled deputy president, Thokozani Khupe.
Speaking to Southern Eye, Bulawayo provincial chairperson Gift Banda confirmed the development yesterday. Said Banda:
We have served them with the letters [of recall and expulsion]. Moyo’s case has been referred to the national council (NC) since he is a member. Only the NC can expel him, but as for those under our jurisdiction, we are handling their cases.
Banda, who is also the deputy mayor, said a number of party members in Bulawayo have since written to the provincial executive begging for forgiveness.
