MIDWEEK WATCH REPORTER
MASVINGO – Zanu Pf secretary for information, Christopher Mutsvangwa has rubbished a letter doing rounds on social media indicating that more than 11 MPs from the ruling party have been recalled.
“We are not aware of such developments as a party because we are an organised party and everything is done according to procedures. All party business go through a channel so that letter is a false one and is very misleading,” Mutsvangwa told The Midweek this evening.
He went on to say that all protocols and procedures go through the Secretary for Administration of Zanu PF and not from anyone from anywhere.
The letter which is dated 12 October, 2023 and stamped on 16 October, 2023 from the headquarters of ZANU PF addressed to the Speaker of Parliament, Advocate Jacob Mudenda stated that:
“Kindly be advised that the following Members of Parliament of the National Assembly were elected under Zimbabwe African National Union Patriotic Front (ZANU PF) political party have ceased to be members of ZANU Pf”.
Some of the names of the recalled MPs
Ngonidzashe Mudekunye Buhera South Constituency
Barbara Rwodzi Chirumanzu South Constituency
Daveson Masvisvi Gokwe Central Constituency
Madron Matiza Gokwe Sesame Constituency
Flora Buka Gokwe Nembudziya Constituency
Nyevera Jona Silobela Constituency
July Moyo Redcliuff Constituency
Joseph Mpasi Shurugwi North Constituency
Kenneth Shupikai Musanhi Bindura North Constituency
Dzidzai Batau Mt Darwin East Constituency
Andrew Nkani Chakari Constituency
The letter comes quick on the heels one written by Sengezo Tshabangu who recalled 15 CCC MPs and several councillors across the country.
The recalls threw the main opposition party into paralysis as its leader Nelson Chamisa denied that Tshabangu is the interim secretary general of the party.
The recalling of MPs began way back in the late 1980s when the then Zanu PF secretary general, late firebrand Edgar Tekere was withdrawn from Parliament after he publicly opposed the late dictator President Mugabe’s maneuvers to declare Zimbabwe a one party state.
