Biti Recall Marks The Death Of Serious Debate In Parliament’

Former People’s Democratic Party (PDP) secretary-general Gorden Moyo said the removal of MDC Alliance vice president Tendai Biti marks the death of serious debate in the 9th Parliament.

Biti, William Madzimure, Settlement Chikwinya, Sichelesile Mahlangu, Regai Tsunga and Kucaca Phulu were recalled from Parliament on Wednesday by PDP secretary-general Benjamin Rukanda allegedly for joining the MDC Alliance party.

Speaking to on Thursday, Moyo said the ruling Zanu PF is pursuing the Chinese authoritarian model by decimating the MDC Alliance in Parliament. He said:

Biti and his PDP should not and must not have been expelled from parliament by anybody.

The desperation of Zanu PF to lobotomise opposition in parliament is beyond comprehension.

Biti, Madzimure, Phulu and Chikwinya are the best opposition MPs in parliament. Just check the Hansard for the issues they raise in parliament.

Their removal marks the death of serious debate in the 9th parliament of Zimbabwe.

The latest recalls add to the more than 30 lawmakers from the Nelson Chamisa-led MDC Alliance who have been expelled from parliament based on a contentious Supreme Court ruling from March last year.

The Supreme Court ruled that the MDC Alliance, which contested the 2018 elections, is not a single political party but made up of various political parties, which formations could recall lawmakers drawn from their membership.

  1. Firstly I do not know what the constitution of PDP says but the constitution of Zimbabwe allows for a political party to recall a member that it had seconded into the Parliament if the member no longer serves its interests. PDP is a political party that claims to have seconded Biti and others into Parliament to represent its interest. If PDP fels Biti is no longer their member and thus not serving its interests, it has the right to recall him and let the seat remain vacant until filled through constitutional ways.
    The assertion that the recalling of Biti marks the death of serious debate in Parliament is blatantly wrong and should be condemned to the dustbins. Why should someone think that only Biti was bringing serious debate in the House? It smacks of belittling other members of the House.
    People should learn to follow their laws. If one goes off side of the law, they should be whipped into line. Biti knew what he was doing and if he is aggrieved by the recall let him contest it in the courts.

  2. Serious talking with no tangible economic development and more debatings in ur 9th what what was not puting food on our tables.he is toxic in whatever form
