She accused the legislature of being unfair in handling the recent developments involving the warring factions in the party.
According to her, parliament was not supposed to accept the letter from the Nelson Chamisa camp after she had written to the National Assembly highlighting the leadership crisis within the party.
"I am not moved by the recall. I am actually surprised that they had to accept a letter from Chamisa. I wrote to parliament advising them of leadership dispute and that they must not entertain any recall letter. Therefore, we will not accept the recall as the legislature is being unfair," she said.
Dr Khupe also expressed concern over the decision by the state to prioritise the Chamisa camp in the disbursement of funds under the Political Parties Finance Act.
"We have been moving around and we are here in Victoria Falls to drum up support ahead of the extra-ordinary congress. I am happy with the preparations and looking forward to a huge turn-out," she said.
The Dr Khupe camp is on record accusing the Chamisa faction of allegedly violating the party's constitution and for deviating from the core values of the opposition party.
The MDC-T informed parliament through a letter that Dr Khupe no longer represented the party's interests, hence decided to recall her from parliament.
The letter of Dr Khupe's expulsion was read by the Acting Speaker of the National Assembly, Reuben Marumahoko.
