National Chairperson for the Nelson Chamisa led MDC-T party, Morgen Komichi has said that his party has expelled 25 members. The 25 were expelled for registering to contest the July 30 elections as candidates as well as those who defected to Thokozani Khupe’s breakaway MDC-T. Speaking to the Daily News, Komichi said,
I think we expelled around 25 members. The number includes those who also defected to our former vice president Thokozani Khupe and filed their papers under her party.
Our members must respect the party constitution and by filing papers as independent candidates, (this) shows that they do not respect the party constitution. Everyone must know that we cannot all be winners. There are a lot of positions in both party and government if we win in the forthcoming elections so there is need to work for the party and all Zimbabweans will benefit at the end.
Some MDC-T candidates claimed that the primary elections had irregularities and chose to contest as independents.
