Breaking News …..MDCT Standing Committee Suspends Losing Epworth Candidate Mhetu


By Staff Reporter


Opposition MDC T Standing Committee has recommended that losing by-election candidate for Epworth Zivai Mhetu be suspended.



Mhetu is being suspended following his no barred interview with an online publication OpenParly where he said the voters in the constituency could have voted for him if it were not that he contested under the MDCT/MDC Alliance banner.



His utterances did not go down well with the MDCT leadership who have recommended his suspension.



Mhetu is also the MDC T Harare provincial chairperson.



The Epworth losing MDC-T-Alliance candidate failed to gunner more than 1 000 votes after spending USD$50 000 on his campaign trail.



However, Mhetu’s suspension also comes at a time leaked audio between the party’s National Chairperson Morgen Komichi speaking to one Makucha has also gone viral



Komichi is heard saying that, “the people have rejected us, the people have rejected a party that was so popular and a large following at the time when it was under the leadership of the late Morgan Tsvangirai and now Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa.”



Meanwhile, Mhetu will know his fate Friday after a meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee where his case will be discussed along deliberations on the outcome of the by-election where the party failed to gain a single seat for both the national assembly and local government.
