MDC-T 2014 national organising secretary, Abednico Bhebhe has claimed that the party’s interim president and chairperson, in that order, Thokozani Khupe and Morgen Komichi “wiped out” the party’s $7.5 million received under the Political Parties Act.
Bhebhe made the remarks in his court affidavit after Khupe, Komichi and himself were taken to court by disgruntled party members, Gilbert Kagodora and Nason Mamuse, for hiding critical information regarding the extraordinary congress slated for December. Bhebhe said:
1st Respondent (MDC-T) opened and now operates books of accounts without reference whatsoever to the National Executive as is required by the constitution.
In fact, 1st Respondent received from the Government of Zimbabwe, under the Political Finances Act, whooping Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Zimbabwean dollars which 2nd (Khupe) and 3rd (Komichi) Respondents wiped clean outside the mandate and framework of 1st Respondent’s constitution.
Bhebhe also claimed that Khupe and Komichi are openly violating the party’s constitution and abusing the national standing committee.
This comes when rival opposition MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa has published its financial audit report which indicate that the party used all its funds prudently.
