Internal strife rocks MDC-T Mat South

However, resistance by sitting MPs has prevented the meetings from being held.

The MDC-T’s representatives in the province include its national chairman and Speaker of parliament, Lovemore Moyo, Gabriel Ndebele and Sithembile Mlothswa, as well as scores of councillors in various districts.

Party insiders said MDC-T supporters in the province are demanding that all MPs and councillors present reports of what they have done since elected.
It is from these scorecards that members would then decide whether to give them another chance or dump them.

“We are drawing closer to crunch elections and we want to undertake an evaluation of what our legislators and councillors achieved and what was not implemented based on their election promises,”said a party insider.

“As a democratic party, members feel that leaders should prove their worth to be the party’s representatives. However, our moves seem to have hit a brick wall, at least for now.” Ndebele said: “Elected members are willing to present updates to members but proper procedures should be followed.

 

I doubt whether this matter is coming from bona fide party members or it’s just a small group. Anybody who has grievances and is a bona fide MDC-T member should use party structures to air their concerns. As an MP for Matobo South, any party member is free to challenge me.”
