Zimbabwe Ruling Party to recall more MPs

More heads will roll in the National Assembly as the ruling Zanu-PF party moves to weed out all expelled members, party chief whip Lovemore Matuke said yesterday.

On Tuesday, the ruling party recalled from Parliament expelled Zanu-PF bigwigs and G40 kingpins Jonathan Moyo, Ignatius Chombo, Saviour Kasukuwere, Mandi Chimene and Kudzayi Chipanga.

The announcement was made in the National Assembly by Deputy Speaker Mabel Chinomona, after Zanu-PF wrote to Parliament to notify the House that the five no longer represented the ruling party.

Chinomona then declared the seats of the deposed Zanu-PF lawmakers vacant.

Interestingly, Gutu South MP Paul Chimedza, Walter Mzembi (Masvingo South), Makhosini Hlongwane (Mberengwa East), Anastancia Ndlovu (Midlands Proportional Representation MP) and Samuel Undenge (Chimanimani East) among others were spared.
