Councillor suspended over Chamisa ‘insult’
THE MDC Alliance has suspended Bulawayo’s ward 4 councillor Silas Chigora after he was accused of denigrating the party’s president Nelson Chamisa on social media, the Daily News has learnt.
“I can confirm that MDC Alliance Bulawayo East district has recommended that its current chairman, Chigora, be suspended from the position of district chairperson pending a disciplinary hearing.“In terms of the party’s rules and code of conduct, the finer details on the recommendation will be given in writing to the party’s Bulawayo provincial executive,” Chirowodza told the Daily News.
Insiders, however, told this publication that Chigora has lately been spewing vitriol on social media targeted at Chamisa.
Contacted for comment, Chigora said he remained loyal to Chamisa.
