The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) led by Thokozani Khupe on Thursday recalled four Harare councilors affiliated with the Nelson Chamisa’s MDC Alliance amid escalating tensions between the two opposition parties.
In a letter written to the council, Local Government Minister said the MDC-T has decided to recall Ward 16 councillor Denford Ngadziore, Grisot Mandere (ward 44), Jaison Kautsa (37) and Tonderai Chakeredza (31), who are accused of supporting the Chamisa formation.
Moyo said the council is now expected to inform the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission about the four vacant council seats.
Khupe has recalled 21 lawmakers said to be supporters of Chamisa’s MDC formation.
The Supreme Court ruled as null and void the elevation of Chamisa to the position of president of the MDC following the death of founding opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
