The court resuscitated MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe has recalled the MDC Alliance’s Gwanda mayor Jastone Mazhale and eight councillors in Bulawayo.
By-elections will be held for the vacant council seats on December 5 after the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) suspended a ban on elections that was imposed earlier this year to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The MDC Alliance councillors recalled by the MDC-T from Bulawayo are as follows:
- Zana Clayton of Ward 19
- Maposa Tinevimbo of Ward 21
- Rafamoyo Ernest of Ward 20
- Mabuto Donald of Ward 9
- Kambarami Tinashe of Ward 3
- Mlilo Lilian of Ward 12
- Mlalazi Concilia of Ward 18
- Hlabano Norman of Ward 26
The development follows the recall of 21 MDC Alliance councillors in Harare, among them Mayor Herbert Gomba and his deputy Enoch Mupamawonde.
