MDC SA youth chair sacked

JOHANNESBURG - The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) provincial interim executive has suspended Bongani Mpofu, the MDC Youth chairperson for South Africa province, for allegedly making some serious tribal remarks against Shona-speaking people.
Mpofu allegedly refused to appear before the

hearing committee and disrupted the party meetings in South Africa.
MDC Deputy Secretary-General for South Africa, William Mabona, said his party would not allow a situation where some rowdy elements were willy-nilly dividing the otherwise vibrant political party through tribalism.
“I can safely confirm that Bongani Mpofu has been suspended for making some tribal remarks as well as disregarding the MDC South Africa leadership.
“MDC is not for Ndebeles or Shonas, but the party belongs to the people of Zimbabwe irregardless of colour, tribe, creed or place of origin,” said Mabona.
The suspension of Mpofu comes as the party is gearing for its first SA congress to be held at the end of August in Johannesburg.
Meanwhile, the MDC deputy organising secretary for South Africa province, Rodgers Mudarikwa, announced that his party had opened nine more district branches for South Africa, bringing the total to 21.
The newly established branches are Mamastraal, Pretoria north, Pietermaritzburg, Mabopane, Ekurhuleni, Alexandra, Orange Farm, Diepsloot and Johannesburg north. – CAJ News
