MDC-T Secretary General Nixon Nyikadzino has announced that Thokozani Khupe has been fired from the MDC-T with immediate effect.

In an interview on Tuesday, Nyikadzino said Khupe fired herself by adhering to the Supreme Court ruling that declared her the Acting MDC leader.

Nyikadzino said “By accepting the court ruling and paying allegiance to its contents and instructions my former president has exited the party voluntarily. We wish her well in her future endeavours though with a heavy heart”.

He said Khupe can never be President of 2 or 3 or 4 different political parties at one point.”

Nyikadzino said he would now assume the position of acting president as prescribed by the party’s constitution.

“I am now the acting president of the MDC-T which contested 2018 elections with Dr Thokozani Khupe as the presidential candidate.”
