Khupe Recalls MDC Alliance MPs From Parliament
The opposition MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe has recalled four MDC Alliance MPs from Parliament.
The Speaker of the National Assembly on Tuesday announced that MDC Alliance MPs Prosper Mutseyami, Thabitha Khumalo, Chalton Hwende and Lilian Timveous [a Senator from Midlands Province] were no longer Members of Parliament following their recall by the MDC-T.
This was revealed by the Deputy Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Energy Mutodi. He said:

The MDC Alliance is expected to resist the recall of its MPs since they were elected on its ticket rather than the MDC-T.
The Thokozani Khupe-led party fielded its candidates in the 2018 harmonised elections but lost dismally.
However, following a recent ruling by the Supreme Court that Khupe was the legitimate MDC-T acting president since the death of Morgan Tsvangirai in 2018, the party has claimed all MDC Alliance MPs, saying it was part of the coalition when it was formed in ahead of the elections.
