MDC T Douglas Mwonzora has said the outfit he is a part of together with Thokozani Khupe and Moren Komichi does not recall people for no reason, but it does so because they will have seized to be members of the MDC T, New Zimbabwe reports.
Speaking to the publication, Mwonzora explained the recall that has seen over 30 legislators losing their seats in the senate and in parliament and said:
It is not our intention to always get rid of people. Recalls are regrettable but it happened because that leadership sacrificed their own people.Those people were recalled because they had ceased to be members of the MDC-T.
They said it in writing that they did not belong to the MDC-T anymore. There are legal consequences to that. Some of them were involved in violence and corruption. We have zero tolerance to violence and corruption. We took action and do not regret it.
We recall people for a reason. Those recalled people were at fault. There was no need for them to sign affidavits denouncing the MDC-T and renouncing their membership of the MDC-T. Once they did that, legal consequences arose.
Meanwhile sometime ago, Mwonzora’s party, the MDC T said they recalled the Gwanda Mayor after he bluntly told them he doesn’t recognize them.
