MDC Alliance judgement open doors for more recalls of Chamisa's defiant MPs





High Court Judge Tawanda Chitapi has dismissed with costs application by MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa seeking to bar the recall of its legislators from Parliament.

The MDC Alliance had approached the court challenging the recall of four legislators, Charlton Hwende, Thabitha Khumalo, Prosper Mutseyami and Lillian Timveos who were sacked by MDC-T using the Supreme Court ruling that had given it control over Zimbabwe's biggest opposition party pending the holding of an extraordinary congress.

MDC-T secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora told Business Times the ruling gave his party authority over lawmakers opening the doors for more recalls for defiant legislators.

In March, the Supreme Court ordered MDC-T to hold an extraordinary congress within three months and restored the 2014 MDC structures.

Thokozani Khupe was recognised as the acting president of the party, pending the holding of an extraordinary congress.
