The three women, Dorothy Bhebhe, Lungile Ncube and Beauty Lifa, lost in the structure elections and are now just ordinary card-carrying members.
Thina besingakwazi ukuthi asivhunyelwa ukungena eBarbourfields Stadium, said Bhebhe to party security details. But the young men deployed to keep the peace at the stadium would not have any patience with the trio. Get out, get out, get out, said Tongai Nerwande, a security detail deployed by the partys HQ. The three women were spotted by alert supporters of Bulawayo businessman, Matson Hlalo.
It is alleged that Vimbai Munyanyi, a party member from Magwegwe District, and MDC-T Bulawayo Provincial Security Officer, Aleck Moyo, falsely accused MDC Bulawayo Provincial Vice Organising Secretary, Tsepiso Mpofu, of smuggling three haulage truck loads of people into the stadium. All accredited delegates who had swarmed the stadium were then removed in order to do a fresh audit. All participants checked were found to have been properly registered.
I do not know why Vimbai Munyanyi and Aleck are so afraid of me to the extent that they would tell lies, said Tsepiso to MDC-T SECurity personnel.
In the first aborted elections for the chairmanship of Bulawayo Province, Gorden Moyos supporters, namely Busani Ncube, Alfred Ncube and Artwell Sibanda, among others, illegally entered the polling station. The three are not even in the party structures and were therefore non-delegates. At the same time security barred Mpopoma youths from accessing the polling station. It was not surprising therefore that total votes cast were more than the number of accredited delegates. Ugly scenes of violence erupted. Moyo won the post of MDC-T Bulawayo Provincial Chairman after a controversial endorsement by Tsvangirai.Post published in: News
