ZIMBABWE – The Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T has continued it’s purge on legislators loyal to Nelson Chamisa’s MDC Alliance, this time recalling  Chinhoyi Mayor Dyke Makumbi (Ward 12), five Chinhoyi and three Chegutu councillors.

The other recalled councillors from Chinhoyi are Deputy Mayor Chipo Mlotshwa ( Ward 14) , Brighton Mhizha (Ward 4), Patricia Chibaya (Ward 2) Mukudzei Zambuko Chigumbura (Ward 8) and Richard Vhitirinyu of Ward 3.

Cllrs  Edward Dzeka (Ward 9) , Alice Kundhlane (Ward 11) and Rydes Machekera (Ward 2) make up the three that were expelled from  Ghegutu Council.

Khupe has been using the Supreme Court judgment handed down earlier this year which gave her interim leadership of the party and ordered for the convening of an extraordinary congress  to clear out the leadership question in the party.

The court also ordered that the MDC-T goes back to the 2014 structures to resolve the question of who takes over from the late Morgan Tsvangirai.

However, Khupe  conniving with the acting Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora have expelled all those who have remained loyal to Chamisa.

Up to date,  160 Cllrs and more than 30 members of parliament aligned to the MDC Alliance have been recalled.

Most of the local authorities have been rendered almost dysfunctional by this exercise and Bulawayo City Council recently announced it had appointed caretaker councillors to cover the gaps left by the recalled members.

In 2018 Khupe only managed to get 45 000 votes in the Presidential race.
