The Movement for Democratic Change led by Morgan Tsvangirai has suspended its national organising secretary, Abednigo Bhebhe, following a probe team’s findings on recent disturbances in Bulawayo that he made statements to the press that put the party into disrepute.

In a statement, the MDC-T said Bhebhe’s matter "has been duly referred to the national council for disciplinary action to commence in line with the party constitution."

The recommendation was made following the MDC Extra-ordinary National Executive meeting held today in Harare.

The party decided to bring back to the fore suspended deputy national publicity secretary, Thabitha Khumalo, who was suspected to have been involved in a fracas in which MDC-T vice president Thokozani Khupe was assaulted by some party activists for allegedly stalling a coalition agreement with other opposition parties.

It also resolved that “all the youths who were involved, including deputy national youth Chairperson Shakespeare Mukoyi remain suspended. Their matter has been referred to the Disciplinary Committee in line with the party Constitution.”
