Addressing a small crowd in Bulawayo Thokozani Khupe threatened to recall Nelson Chamisa from parliament once the High Court reverses her expulsion. She also accused Chamisa of hiring crowds to rallies.
Khupe also insisted that her faction is the original MDC and they are going to go ahead with an extraordinary congress on April 21. Said Khupe:
I was elected deputy president in 2006, 2011 and 2014 where the congress unanimously endorsed me. As such we remain the original MDC and we are going to call for an extraordinary congress on April 21 where a leader will be elected. Right now we are busy going around drumming up support for the congress and as acting president I have declared interest for election. I could hire crowds like them but that is only mobocracy and it doesn’t vote, such people don’t vote. I will remain resolute. They have made me stronger and they can’t break my spirit. I can’t be fired by them, how do you fire somebody who is not with you?
