MDC president Thokozani Khupe, pictured, yesterday shifted her focus to Bulawayo where she recalled eight councillors.
This comes as Khupe has also recalled Gwanda mayor Justine Mazhale.
Khupe, who has been on a recalling campaign against the Nelson Chamisa-led MDC Alliance, has continued to decimate her opponent.
Khupe has been recalling MDC Alliance legislators and councillors for not showing allegiance to her after the Supreme Court declared her as the legitimate acting leader of the opposition party, tasking her to organise an extra-ordinary congress, using 2014 party structures.
Councillors Tinashe Kambarami (Ward 3), Concillia Mlalazi (Ward 18), Alderman Earnest Rafamoyo (Ward 20), Tinevimbo Maphosa (Ward 21), Alderma Norman Hlabani (Ward 26), Ald Clayton Zana (ward 19), Donaldson
Mabuto (Ward 9) and Lillian Mlilo (Ward 16) were the latest victims of Khupe’s axe.
Khupe’s spokesperson, Khalipani Phugeni, yesterday confirmed the recalls.
The Bulawayo and Gwanda recalls came after Khupe also recalled 11 more Harare councillors, Beitbridge mayor Morgan Ncube and two other councillors Granger Nyoni (ward 5) and Agnes Tore (Ward 6).
The Bulawayo recalls, however, leave the second largest city with a total of 14 councillors, a development that observers say would have an impact on service delivery in the city. By-elections to fill the vacant posts are set to be held before the end of the year.
