MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora nullified all mass expulsions announced by the party’s provincial executives.
In a letter dated October 31, Mwonzora said all suspensions of party members must be referred to the national organising committee through the secretary-general. He said the power to expel any member of the party lies with the national council in terms of clause 5.11 of the constitution or the national disciplinary committee headed by the national chairperson. Part of Mwonzora’s letter reads:
All the lower organs can do is to recommend an expulsion to the national chairperson. Please note that all the purported suspensions and expulsions not done in accordance with these constitutional requirements are null and void.
