DEPUTY CHIEF WRITER
©️ MDC-Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has vowed to fight against the recall of his legislators from Parliament by the rival Thokozani Khupe-led MDC-T.
The fresh batch of recalls of the party’s MPs on Tuesday also came amid renewed efforts by some worried MDC bigwigs to re-unite the movement’s leaders — who have been at each other’s throats ever since Tsvangirai’s death.
Among those expelled were some key lieutenants of Chamisa such as Amos Chibaya (Mkoba), Murisi Zwizwai (Harare Central), and Happymore Chidziva (Highfield West).
The MDC’s interim leadership has now recalled a total of 13 party legislators from Parliament — following last month’s jettisoning of Chalton Hwende (Kuwadzana East), Prosper Mutseyami (Chikanga Dangamvura), Tabitha Khumalo (proportional) and Senator Lilian Timveos (Midlands), as Khupe continues to flex her muscles in the fierce fight for the control of the party.
All this comes as Khupe has deferred the much-anticipated and court-directed MDC extra-ordinary congress,
The postponement came a few days after MDC organising secretary Abednico Bhebhe implored both Khupe and Chamisa to bury their differences and unite for the good of the party.
