MDC Alliance Councillors Snub Khupe's Meeting
MDC Alliance councillors on Friday yet again snubbed an MDC-T meeting which had been called by MDC-T interim leader, Thokozani Khupe.
Although there is confusion as to how many councillors were in attendance due to varying accounts, the numbers being said are still very low.
Acting party spokesperson Khalipani Phugeni said 15 councillors attended the meeting, but Epworth Local Board chairperson Batanai Masunda claimed 20 were in attendance, while other sources insisted only 14 councillors turned up out of 71 councillors from Greater Harare.
The meeting was held at Harvest House christened Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House. Phugeni told Newsday:
It was a meeting called by the acting president to deal with several issues as you have read in the media of cases of corruption within local authorities, among other issues. She was reading the riot act and warning those involved in corruption.

Meanwhile, Newsday claims that an attendance register showed that 10 out of 45 Harare councillors attended while Chitungwiza only had two out of 21, while Epworth also had two out of a possible five councillors.
The development comes amid a leadership crisis in the MDC with Nelson Chamisa and Khupe fighting for control of party members and assets.
