Tendai Biti: MDC acts on Hon. Mubhawu

The national executive of the MDC held its fifth post-Congress meeting in Bulawayo on 15 October 2006. The meeting was historic in that it was the first time the party had held its executive meeting in Bulawayo.

The national executive deliberated on the state of the party, did a post-mortem on the Chikomba and Rushinga by-elections and received and deliberated on Advocate Happias Zhou’s report on the assault of in Mabvuku 2 July 2006. The national executive also reviewed the debate in Parliament on the Domestic Violence Bill. Pursuant to this, a number of critical decisions were made, which include the following:

1 (a) That the executive committee accepts in total the report and extends its thanks gratitude to Advocate Zhou, Ms Irene Petras, Mr Kay Ncube and Mr Kudzakwashe Matibiri for their sterling effort in producing the report for no charge. The executive also accepted the responsibility of Zanu PF and its intelligence agents in infiltrating and destabilizing the party and the centrality of the State in the barbaric assaults that took place on 2 July 2006. However, the party acknowledges the huge internal problems inherent in Mabvuku and with immediate effect dissolves the Tafara/Mabvuku district executive. An interim committee will be appointed to run the district pending elections to be held in 3 months time.

(b) That the party acknowledges the destructive role played by the sitting MP, Hon Timothy Mubhawu and for his role in the matter, the party immediately relieved Mubhawu of his position in Harare province where he was director of elections. The party further barred and interdicted Hon Mubhawu from dealing with any structures in Mabvuku in any manner other than that of organizing meetings and rallies consistent with party programmes.
