Khupe Sworn In As Member Of Parliament

The interim leader of the opposition MDC-T, Thokozani Khupe has been sworn in as a proportional representative Member of Parliament.

Khupe was sworn in together with six other members of the MDC-T to replace a group of MDC Alliance legislators whom the MDC-T recalled from Parliament.

Speaker Jacob Mudenda announced the development indicating that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) wrote a letter written to Parliament on the matter.

The swearing-in ceremony was presided over by Clerk of Parliament Kennedy Chokuda in the National Assembly this Wednesday.

The other six members who were sworn in are Lindani Moyo, Memory Munotinzwa, Winfielder Musarurwa, Sakhi January, Lwazi Sibanda and Sipho Moyo.

MDC Alliance and some analysts view the replacements as a slap in the face of democracy since the members who are being sworn in were not voted by the electorate.

One Comment on “Khupe Sworn In As Member Of Parliament

  1. The Garwe regime is assuming that by sidelining Nelson Chamisa then the entire global community will believe that their actions are genuine and are meant to bring peace and unity to our troubled nation, not knowing that they are simply making a big mistake. Nelson Chamisa is the the key to Zimbabwe’s woes and any deliberate actions to ignore such a powerful man like Chamisa is really suicidal. If Garwe thinks that by making that political midget Thokozani Khupe a parliamentarian will compensate for his failure to revive our economically dead country, then he is in for a big surprise.
    Please Nelson Chamisa rambauchizvidira jecha, what you’re witnessing is the kicks of a dying horse.
