By Own Correspondent| MDC Alliance Sunningdale legislator Hon Winnie Kanguni is in hot soup after she attended a portfolio committee meeting on health, industry and public service held today against a National Standing Committee resolution to disengage from parliamentary activities.

According to a message circulating in MDC Alliance Whatsapp groups, Kanguni is being labelled a rebel who will be afforded an opportunity to explain her reasons for defying the party resolution before action is taken against her.

“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,” reads the message.

The MDC recently passed a resolution to disengage from all parliamentary activities in protest against the recall and dismissal of four legislators at the behest of reinstated Secretary General and Manicaland Senator Douglas Mwonzora.

The dismissed legislators are Charlton Hwende, Tabitha Khumalo, Prosper Mutseyami and Lilian Timveos.

The Thokozani Khupe group has also threatened to fire Harare councillors who are deemed corrupt.

More portfolio committee meetings are set for this week and the party will be watching out for legislators who will defy the party resolution.

MDC Alliance Spokesperson Daniel Molokele could not be reached for a common.
