3 MDC-A Councillors In Kwekwe Defect To Khupe

Three MDC Alliance (MDC-A) councillors have dumped the Nelson Chamisa-led MDC Alliance and joined the MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe.

The development was confirmed by MDC-T secretary for women’s assembly in Mbizo district, Rita Munyorovi-Svova.

Munyorovi-Svova revealed that the councillors are from Ward 2, 11 and 12. She said:

They all belong to MDC-T. In fact, they must not make the mistake of following an individual (Nelson Chamisa) but should follow the party (MDC-T).

People should read and understand the constitution of the MDC-T.

Meanwhile, MDC-A Midlands secretary for information Takavafira Zhou said it is the democratic right of the three councillors to decide on whomever they want to associate with. Said Zhou:

In politics, there is freedom of association and disassociation. We don’t have any problem with them, in fact, we wish them good luck.

But we foresee them coming back. As MDC-A led by Nelson Chamisa, we will soldier on.

Using a controversial Supreme Court ruling delivered a few hours after the country went into lockdown in March, the MDC-T has so far recalled at least 21 legislators from both the National Assembly and Senate as well as several councillors.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has said by-elections for vacant constituencies and wards would be held when the government relaxes lockdown restrictions.
