WASHINGTON DC —
The Matabeleland South provincial chairman of the Movement for Democratic Change formation of Professor Welshman Ncube says he is appealing his expulsion from the party after he was found guilty of “misconduct.”
Petros Mokoena, who had been on suspension for about ten months, received a letter from the party’s disciplinary committee this week telling him he had been kicked out and that he would not be allowed to rejoin the mdc for the next five years.
Mokoena was also found guilty of acting quote, “with impunity outside the structures of the party and its constitution” as well as disrespecting the disciplinary committee itself.
But the veteran politician shot back Friday, saying he is being victimized for exposing corruption in the party and speaking out against the imposition of secretary general Priscillar Misihairabwi-Mushonga as lawmaker for Matabeleland South.
He said he is appealing the decision.
Party spokesman Nhlanhla Dube said Mokoena’s expulsion was in order, but adds, he has the right to appeal.
