The former Nyanga legislator said the case of Sikhala was a special one in the sense that the Zengeza legislator had not formally stated his side like what those who had been recalled had done through signed affidavits.

“The people who were recalled, were recalled on the basis that they had through signing of affidavits, through acts on omissions formed, supported or joined other political parties other than the MDC-T.

“If you form, join or support another political party then in terms of clause 5.10 (a) of the constitution you automatically terminate your membership.

“These people were not expelled by us, they terminated their membership and these are people who were knowledgeable of the provisions of the constitution especially clause 5.10 (a) because they have used it before.

“They terminated their membership and we communicated to parliament, we communicated to council through the minister of Local Government that these people had ceased to belong to our members,” said Mwonzora.
