Recalled MDC Alliance MP dies


Annah Muyambo

HARARE – An MDC Alliance MP who was recalled from Parliament in June by the Thokozani Khupe MDC Alliance has died, her party said.

Annah Muyambo, who was an MP for Harare province after entering parliament on a proportional representation party list died on Thursday morning.

“I’ve learnt with great sadness that one of the recalled MPs Hon Anna Muyambo has passed on. After being recalled by Thokozani Khupe, she had a stroke and never recovered,” friend and former colleague Caston Matewu, himself recalled as MP for Marondera Central, said.

The MDC-T has expelled 32 MDC Alliance MPs and over a hundred councillors in a purge of loyalists of MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa.

The recalled MPs face the risk of having vehicles issued by Parliament withdrawn, as well as diplomatic passports. They also stand to lose salaries of around Z$20,000 (about US$200).-zimlive
