The country’s leading opposition party, the MDC Alliance reportedly suspended one of its councillors after he reportedly criticised the party’s president Nelson Chamisa at a crucial time when the party is in for a big fight with political rivals the MDC T led by Thokozani Khupe which is repossessing their offices and recalling their legislators.
The suspended councillor and Bulawayo East constituency district chairperson Silas Chigora reportedly posted the following message in the party’s WhatsApp Group:
Our president (Chamisa) is a big liar. He lied about the Alliance agreement and also that Harvest House was under the control of the Alliance. He lied about everything and now the truth has been exposed
Confirming Chigora’s suspension, MDC provincial spokesperson Swithern Chirowodza said:
I can confirm that MDC Alliance Bulawayo East district has recommended that its current chairman, Chigora, be suspended from the position of district chairperson pending a disciplinary hearing. In terms of the party’s rules and code of conduct, the finer details on the recommendation will be given in writing to the party’s Bulawayo provincial executive,.
