The purported MDC-T congress held by expelled former MDC Vice President Thokozani Khupe has demonstrated that whilst Khupe talks about constitutionalism daily she was willing to violate every clause in the MDC-T Constitution in a futile attempt to install herself as a party President.
The so called Congress was not properly convened as provided for and the National Council did not meet to either authorize the Congress or approve the Congress Agenda.
Hundreds of people were bused from Harare, Masvingo and Bulawayo and were given free T shirts and money to pose as Congress Delegates.
As a result some of the people elected into her Standing Committee are not even members of the MDC-T. It is abundantly clear that Khupe and Group have formed a new Party.
The party constitution clearly spells out who attends our party’s congress.
(c) All members of the National Executive of Youth and 30 members of the Students’ Council.
(e) The Chairperson, Secretary, Organising Secretary and Treasurer from each District Executive Committee,
(f)The Chairperson, Secretary , Treasurer and Organising Secretary at Provincial and District levels of the National Assemblies of Women and Youth.
6.2.7 The quorum of the Congress shall be two-thirds of the members entitled to attend, provided that if one hour after the stipulated time for commencement a quorum is not reached, the meeting will proceed subject to decisions thereat being approved by an Extra-Ordinary Congress called by the National Council six months of the date of the inqourate Congress.
