Nelson Chamisa ‘s MDC Alliance has been plunged into chaos as MPs openly Defy the party’ s directive to boycott Parliament.
The fallout from this defiance resulted in one MP revealing a plot by Tendai Biti to pay MPs, through Denford Ngadziore, to abandon Nelson Chamisa in 2023 (See Whatsapp Thread at the end) .
Yesterday, three out of five MPs attended the Parliamentary Committee on Public Services and Health Meeting.
Two other MPs travelled to Harare and checked into their hotel accommodation using Parliament vouchers but did not attend the meeting.
Posting on Facebook Paul Saungweme (MDC-T) said MPs MP Peter Moyo, Kankuni and Mahlangu attended their Public Services committee meeting in Parliament.
Two MPs, Hon Labode (Health Chair Committee) and Anele Ndebele did not attend though they checked in at Harare hotels using parliament vouchers on the previous day.
However unconfirmed reports say one of the MPS did not attend due to health reasons.
Saungweme said If it’s proven the two intentionally missed Health Portfolio Committie meeting then the speaker might deduct the hotel bills from their salaries.
Mr Khaliphani Phugeni, Spokesman for Dr Thokozani Khuphe, Speaking Exclusively to Gambakwe Media, said MPs that do not attend Parliament business and who align themselves with the Chamisa Faction will be recalled.
A heated argument broke out in MDC Alliance Whatsapp groups and MPs who attended were swiftly removed by Charlton Hwende.
However, before she was removed, Kankuni revealed that there was a plot by Tendai Biti to replace Nelson Chamisa by 2023.
The plot, led by Denford Ngadziore, a Councilor in Harare, was previously revealed to Charlton Hwende who failed to act on these reports.
It remains to be seen how many other MPs will Defy the MDC Alliance directive as there are more Portifolo Committee meetings this week.
Why MPs are Defying the MDC Alliance Directive
– There are many people in the MDC Alliance who believe that the Supreme Court ruling should be complied with. Komichi put this number at above 65%
– Most MPs will financially suffer if they Boycott Parliament. The speaker of Parliament has said they will deduct hotel expenses from MPs salaries.
– Once recalled, most MPs will lose their only source of income and perks.

[5/12, 13:49] Denford Ngadziore: One confirmed MDC Alliance rebel attend Parliament Committee
The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Health, Industry, Public Service convened met today. All genuine MDC Alliance Members of Parliament boycotted in support of National Standing Committee resolutions. Those who boycotted include the Chairperson of the committee, Hon Ruth Labode (PR Matabeleland North) However, one Hon. Kanguni of Sunningadale decided in her great wisdom or lack of it to attend this meeting clearly in contrast to the party position. Hon Kanguni is hereby declared a rebel and due action shall follow immediately after assessing her reasons for defying the party.
More PPC meetings shall be held this week and all rebels will be exposed and dealt with decisively.
