Biti faction claims to have suspended Tsvangirai

HARARE – The circus in the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) moved another notch with a small faction of the party led by Secretary General Tendai Biti claiming to have suspended party leader Morgan Tsvangirai for allegedly violating the constitution and promoting violence. 

The suspensions were announced by Lobengula MP Samuel Sipepa Nkomo at the Mendel Training Centre in Malborough, 15km away from the MDC-T Harvest House headquarters.

The suspensions were announced by Lobengula MP Samuel Sipepa Nkomo at the Mendel Training Centre in Malborough, 15km away from the MDC-T Harvest House headquarters.

The group calling itself MDC Team also claims to have suspended and dissolved the entire standing committee of Tsvangirai, Deputy President Thokozani Khupe, National Chairman Lovemore Moyo, Vice Chairman Morgan Komichi, National Organising Secretary Nelson Chamisa, Vice Organising Secretary Abednico Bhebhe, National Spokesman Douglas Mwonzora.

Curiously the group did not say anything about Biti’s deputy Tapiwa Mashakada or Theresa Makone, the Women’s Assembly chairperson.

The suspensions were announced by Lobengula MP Samuel Sipepa Nkomo at the Mendel Training Centre in Malborough, 15km away from the MDC-T Harvest House headquarters.

“The first item on our agenda was the re-instatement and in fact rescinding of the so called expulsions of deputy treasurer general Elton Mangoma, youth secretary general Promise Mkwananzi, national executive members Last Maengahama and Jacob Mafume,” Nkomo said.

“Those purported suspensions are null and void and the national council has voted against them.

“The MDC national council also resolved today to suspend the following persons, Morgan Richard Tsvangirai (president), Thokozani Khupe (deputy president), Lovemore Moyo (national chairman), Morgen Komichi (deputy national chairman), Nelson Chamisa (organising secretary), Abednico Bhebhe (deputy organising secretary) and Douglas Mwonzora (information secretary).”

Nkomo said the national council had recommitted the party to its founding values of “democratic struggle, non-violence and servant leadership”. According to the resolutions by the rebels, the party’s guardian council, headed by Sekai Holland, will now take charge and prepare for an elective congress.

At the Harare meeting, Biti was supported by Youth Assembly chairman Solomon Madzore, Mbizo MP Settlement Chikwinya, Lobengula MP Samuel Sipepa Nkomo, senator Evelyn Masaiti and former Deputy Treasurer General Elton Mangoma and Youth Assembly Secretary General Promise Mkwananzi who were expelled by the MDC-T this month.

But on Biti’s big day he suffered a huge setback as former Organising Secretary and Warren Park MP Elias Mudzuri, Kuwadzana West MP Lucia Matibenga, Chipinge MP Prosper Mutseyami, Bulawayo South MP Eddie Cross and Chitungwiza East MP Alexio Musundire all refused to join his faction despite an earlier perception created that all five supported the renewal faction.

On Friday Nehanda Radio reported how Biti was facing a rebellion from several MP’s who supported him but feared losing their seats in parliament because of the split. The decision to suspend Tsvangirai and dissolve the standing committee we have been told is designed to plunge the party into a bruising legal battle over the status of the MP’s and other party issues.

Writing on Facebook, MDC-T National Executive member Chalton Hwende laughed off the purported suspensions saying:

“Of all these people you see here (picture above) only Tendai Biti was elected directly by our congress delegates in 2011. Madzore was seconded by the Youth Assembly, (Samuel) Sipepa Nkomo tried to stand for the Deputy SG post but was rejected by the same congress only managing a paltry 373 votes.

“The rest were serving in the National Executive at the pleasure of the President who is allowed to appoint 10 additional members in the National Executive. How they now claim to have powers to substitute our Congress ndazvishaya ndibatsireiwo!!!!!!,” Hwende queried.

In an indirect dig at Biti, MDC-T Harare Province spokesman Obert Gutu also took to Facebook saying “He needs emergency treatment. This is definitely not the man I have known for the past 28 years or so. I feel pity for him. Can someone out there please help this guy urgently? He is losing it ; completely.”

A senior official in the MDC-T told Nehanda Radio: “The event exhibits political drunkenness and desperation of the greatest order. Surely it can never be acceptable even to the sponsors and few sympathizers of these rebels that they can suspend an entire elected leadership of a party.

“Even their cousins in ZANUPF would never accept the rebels’ circus decision to suspend all but three National Standing Committee Members elected by Congress. The rebels really think that they are larger than Congress and the people who elected this leadership at Babourfields Stadium in May 2011? Surely those the gods want to destroy first make them mad,” he added.

More details as we get them…………

    The traitor Tendai Biti has lost weight too fast! Chaakadya chopfuka zvino

  • Fungai WaWilliam

    I dont get it r u telling me that this group which has suspended the entire leadership is on the right side. I thought there is wat they call a qouram do they form such and if so wat happened with suspension yaMangoma. Something is not right here. Y cant Tsvangirai and suspended team form their own MDC tione kuti vano luma here vana Biti. As far as m concerned politics is a game of numbers if these guys believe they have numbers to survive in the game so b it. As for SAVE my advise is he must fight these idiots if not must leave them and go form another party dont even call it MDC find another name to show a difference as I believe SAVE still have relavance in our polotics.

  • Nhubu

    This so called expulsion of Morgan Tsvangirai is just an attempt by
    people who knows crystal clear that you can’t be an MP or senator under
    Zimbabwean law if the part you purport to belong to disowns you.
    Initially they said they are MDC Team and today they convene a National
    Council in the name of MDC T whose credence I am not sure of its
    constitutional legitimacy and supremacy other than numbers. For cdes
    this is what I realized when ZINASU succumbs to such machinations when
    those who believe they control the donor community meddled into the
    affair of the students’ struggles. Zimbabwe is for us all those who
    purport to control donor thinking.

  • Machoko

    This is a big joke. They didn’t even hold the meeting at the Harvest
    house…it was held somewhere in Milton Park. Anyhow, good luck to Biti
    and Co. Some of us will stay with Morgan Tsvangirai.

    We
    shall see. Surely you can not expel Tsvangirai without the people’s
    mandate. Its a little bit too late for that in my opinion cause
    Tsvangirai is drawing huge crowds at the moment. The rebels should have
    embarked on their mission immediately after the rigged elections when
    the populace was in a confused state. GOOD LUCK to the rebels.

  • Nelson Chidhuza

    They
    can split but the newly formed party will have a challenge to build
    support base why becoz zimbabweans take time to make their decisions
    they are very caculative ,it took a lot of time for tsvangirai to taken
    serious so they must not take it as if its a walkover its hard to have
    suppoters look at welsherman ncube he used to adress a very big crowd
    at white city or arround zimbabwe under the leadership of tsvangirai but
    the moment he left the so called big tent it became very difficult for
    ncube to get 50 people to adress and finally the shop was closed by 2013
    july and he is finished so becareful zimbabweans might disapoint u and
    become useless politian by throwing u in a dust bin.

I thought as well the name MDC T comes with the T standing for Tsvangirai meaning he is t the father figure the most outstanding character the most known person and hence the main actor meaning if you want to remove or change the main actor then the movie will become meaning less to biti and the other guys the rule is actor ha afe so the best of you is to form your own party and call it MDC B like that guy Ncube did but what l can say that will be the end of you in politics

  • Makusha

    The only relevant thing that happened today is that the rebel camp has now come out, which will hopefully energise the party to finally put these people where they belong, in the MDC-T dustbin. Have been out all day so not clear about the full list, but what I have so far is:
    The four bunglers plus
    Biti,
    Sipepa,
    Madzorex2,
    Masaiti,
    Sekai?
    Chitando
    and some provincial chairmen who have already been disowned by their provinces.
    This is not a split, neither is it a splinter. It’s just some individuals who have thrown themselves out of the party, which is so much better for the party, because now we know who is who. Please add to my list and share, so that everyone knows.

  • Masiyiwa

    I have not heard of a dog that barks and chases away its master and declares with its formation of rats and cats that it is now in charge….

    Mbiti has just done that. But we wait until dawn when it will wait for the master to give it food then we will use our cooking stick to strike its nose…then we take it to the nearest animal clinic for examination as we suspect it contacted rabbies after its encounter with a jackal the previous night which we suspect to be the fact as the the barking was not consitent with its behaviour.

    Goodnight the true maChinja….

    Dr Morgan Tsvangirai forever….

  • Chalton Hwende

    I think enough is enough the time for this Biti nonsense is over all our revolutionaries must now protect the party from these charlatans. We are now calling all the people in the provinces to ensure that these ZANU PF sponsored rebels do not continue to abuse our party. A lot of blood was shed for this movement and we are prepared to die protecting the dream for a free Zimbabwe under President Morgan Tsvangirai.

  • Brighton Musonza

    I think that has always been the problem with the British, they don’t understand African politics and they end up all over the place making unpopular palace coups in African parties without understanding what makes these parties tick. All British media houses were stationed at venue and within minutes they had the headlines. Hope they have egg on their faces when they realised they made bets for the wrong horse.

  • Makombe

  • Mukandabhutsu

    I said it before and people yelled at me.

    Biti and Mangoma during the GNU negotiations they were not
    putting their foot down hard enough for Zanu PF to accept some of their demands
    and then later on during the Constitution negotiations they were not demanding
    anything and Zanu PF was saying whatever they want and they were accepting
    everything. They did not even fight for the reforms to be implemented first
    before the elections. Then later on, Mugabe complains that Zindiwe Zulu was
    negotiating for MDC-T whilst the MDC did not say much. The Mss. Zulu later
    spill the beans that the MDC delegation did not say anything during the
    negotiations and she was actually talking for them, and that is what made
    Mugabe upset and call her a whore. Come to think of it, the 2 people who were
    considered the best ministers in the GNU are the ones who could not negotiate
    on behalf of their party and are the ones again who form the rebel group, is
    this a mere coincidence or it was part of the plan to destroy Morgan
    Tsvangirai? Think very careful about this because chinamanenji hachifambisi,
    chinomirira kuti mavara aonekwe.

    The fact that they could not make this announcement at harvest house says a lot about this rebel group. This is a ZANU project and people will see through it. Remember when smith gathered around him a bunch of puppets and created the internal settlement. Tsvangirai is not perfect but so far he is the only man who has stood up to Mugabe and beat him in an election. My bet is these rebels have had a carrot dangled in front of their faces by ZANU and they have fallen for it. If they want to be democrats go for congress and let the people elect you not this coup

    Was there no other National Council convened so long ago? Who is in the National Council and who is not? Does Biti still call his group MDC-T?

    Tsvangirai can still form another party today and it’ll be more popular than Zanu Pf & Bit’s MDC put together. But how much were u promised to cause confusion in the people’s project Biti? You are a looser! I’d rather vote for Mugabe than you. Another Mutambara.Shame!

    zanu pf we want inclusive government with u biti and company welcome

  • Comrade

    Biti’s agenda is not to lead the party but to destroy it. That’s his assignment given him by Zanu Pf in exchange for amnesty. He knows fully well how popular Tsvangirai is. In the coming days we are going to see Biti taking control of the MDC assets and finances with the help of the Zanu Pf influenced judicial system. Remember the Anglican saga? This is just to weaken a strong opposition in Zimbabwe in light of the declining economy and the failure by Zanu Pf to fulfil it’s election pledge. By the time Tsvangirai and all progressive forces have regrouped, Zanu Pf would have had ample time to recover. Most of the time and energy is going to be spent in courts fighting for the control of the MDC, hence Biti and company don’t want to start their own party. My advice to Tsvangirai would be to let Biti and company take over and he can start another party. Tsvangirai is a brand which is why we don’t say “we are going to A MDC rally ” but, ” tirikuenda kurally Kwatsvangirai”. Tendai Biti, Wananchi, history will judge you harshly. Far more than Nyathi!

    Walshman mukono. Akaona kuti kushanda na Tsvangson kwaramba and he went away nezita MDC rakaasevenzawo zvake. He showed kuti murume kwete zvana Biti. I thought kuti UDF yazouya manje but eiiish yangori nayo nayo hondo ye zita MDC. Zvino party yacho ichanzii. Nokuti makati MDC-T T anomiririra Tsvangson. Saka musiyeyi neparty yake imi chifomayi yenyu
