We are staying put- expelled MDC four


Jacob Mafume, one of the four members expelled from the Movement for Democratic Change yesterday for insubordination and violating the party’s constitution, today said their expulsion was unconstitutional. “We do not consider ourselves expelled. We have not been expelled and we will continue to do our duties whatever they were and as best as we can for the interest of the party and the generality of the Zimbabwean population using the vehicle of the MDC until the proper procedures are followed.” Mafume who is Elton Mangoma’s lawyer and former director of information in the Prime Minister’s Office when MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai held that post, was expelled together with Mangoma, Last Maengahama and Promise Mkwananzi. “As the spokesperson of the renewal team, we find nothing shocking in the unconstitutional decision made on Thursday by a bogus national council purportedly to expel the deputy treasurer-general Mr Mangoma, the youth assembly secretary-general Promise Mkwananzi and Last Maengahama, a member of the national executive, and myself,” Mafume said. “What is puzzling is that the national council expelled Mr Mangoma who is already on suspension pending a hearing without affording him an opportunity to be heard. This is not only in violation of the party’s constitution, but flies in the face of the principle of national justice.”
