Thokozani Khupe with Nelson Chamisa

The MDC T led by Dr Thokozani Khupe on Thursday recalled 10 more MDC Alliance legislators including opposition leader Nelson Chamisa’s deputy Lynette Karenyi Kore.

The announcement was made by speaker of parliament Jacob Mudenda while issuing notices to legislators.

The move comes as a time when the MDC-T interim leader Thokozani Khupe held a hastily arranged meeting of the party’s standing committee early this week which officials said was meant to clear the ground for reunification talks with Nelson Chamisa.

MDC-T youth assembly chairman for Harare, Paul Gorekore said that the youths were determined to push for dialogue.

Meanwhile, MDC youths appeared fed up with the factional wars in the main opposition after they seized the iconic Harvest House before vowing to force dialogue between Thokozani Khupe and Nelson Chamisa.

The youths said the action was meant to save the party from collapse as its leaders’ bloodletting escalates.

Below is a list of the recalled MPs:

Eric Murai (Highfield East),

Wellington Chikombo (Glen Norah),

Etheridge Kureva (Epworth),

Dorcas Sibanda (Proportional Representation Bulawayo),

Caston Matewu (Marondera),

Lynette Karenyi Kore (Proportional Representation Manicaland)

Concilia Chinanzvavana (Proportional Represntation Mashonaland West),

Susan Matsunga (Mufakose),

Prince Dubeko Sibanda (Binga North) and

Vunganai Tarusenga (St Mary’s)
