The Welshman Ncube-led MDC Friday expelled three of its top officials accusing them of dining with MDC-T led by Douglas Mwonzora instead of supporting opposition leader Nelson Chamisa.
The officials expelled are Shupikai Mandaza (vice-chairman), Christopher Monera (Secretary for research and policy implementation) and Munhango Musevenzo (Member of National Council).

In expulsion letters seen by Bulawayo24, the trio was charged for attending a meeting called for by Mwonzora at his party headquarters on august 3 and 11 respectively.
They purported to be representing MDC N led by Ncube without his approval hence their attendance was in contravening of the party constitution and were invited to appear before a disciplinary committee of which they did not turn up resulting in them being served with expulsion letters.
According to Ncube MDC N is in the MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa and has no intention whatsoever in getting into an alliance with MDC T led by Mwonzora.
Ironically, Mandaza, who described himself as interim leader of the MDC-N, recently stated that six senior party leaders, among them Welshman Ncube and Dzivarasekwa MP Edwin Mushoriwa, who was the deputy president, saying they had ceased to be MDC-N members after aligning with Chamisa.
MDC N was part of the 2017 MDC Alliance which consisted of seven political parties.
There is confusion over the matter after Ncube was readmitted into the MDC at the MDC Congress held in Gweru in 2019.
