MDC Alliance VP Lynette Karenyi-Kore challenges expulsion from Parly

MDC Alliance VP Lynette Karenyi-Kore challenges expulsion from Parly. Since March last year, MDC-T then led by Thokozani Khue has recalled scores of MDC Alliance MPs and councillors arguing that they had ceased to be members of the party that had given them the ticket into 2018 elections.

Seven MDC Alliance MPs led by party vice president Lynette Karenyi-Kore have approached the High Court challenging their expulsion from Parliament. The seven are Karenyi-Kore, Dorcas Sibanda, Consilia Chinanzvavana, Susan Matsunga, Prince Dubeko Sibanda, Unganai Dickson and Eric Murai.

In their application, the MPs argued their recall and subsequent expulsion from parliament was illogical. Said Karenyi in a founding affidavit also filed on behalf of other applicants:  This is an application for a declarator seeking to declare as null and void and therefore set aside the purported termination of applicants’ membership of the National Assembly.

More particularly, the applicants seek a declarator to the effect that the respondent’s action in purporting to notify parliament that applicants were no longer members of the MDC-T party and no longer represent MDC-T in parliament was wrongful, unlawful and invalid.

Karenyi said parliament erred in accepting and effecting their expulsion while taking instructions from Mwonzora and not from MDC Alliance which sponsored them at the time in question.

The MPs also said assuming MDC-T had a right to recall us, which they deny, the party did not follow due process and also failed to comply with the provisions of any law. The legislators want a ruling that sets asides the order that saw them being ejected from the August House. The matter is yet to be heard.
