MDC founding politician and former legislator Abednico Bhebhe has rejoined the Nelson Chamisa led MDC Alliance.
MDC Alliance Matebeleland North provincial spokesperson Mhlonipheki Ncube confirmed the development during an interview with NewZimbabwe.com Monday. Ncube said:
In a nutshell, Mr Bhebhe has been generally welcomed by all Matebeleland North structures and are looking forward to working with him very well.
He is a hard worker notwithstanding his weaknesses. He knows how to mobilise and that is what we are looking at.
Bhebhe, who was the national organising secretary, was expelled from the then Thokozani Khupe-led MDC-T a few weeks before the party’s chaotic extraordinary congress that was held on 27 December last year.
He was fired on allegations of violating the party’s constitution by supporting another political party other than the MDC-T.
Bhebhe was in 2005 among some party legislators who split from the then Morgan Tsvangirai led MDC.
He, among other MDC leaders who were predominantly from the Matabeleland provinces, opposed Tsvangirai’s decision to boycott the country’s senatorial elections that were being reintroduced by the government at the time.
He later rejoined the Tsvangirai led MDC but left the party again in 2018 alongside Khupe and a few bigwigs to revive the MDC-T which was then led by Khupe.
