MDC-T Rally

MDC-T national council met in Harare today and suspended deputy treasurer, Mr Elton Mangoma, accusing him of bringing the name of the opposition party to disrepute. Party spokesperson, Mr Douglas Mwonzora, confirmed the suspension.

He said all the party's 12 provinces voted for Mr Mangoma's suspension.

He, however, said Mr Mangoma had the right to appeal against the national council's decision.

Mr Mangoma and youth leader Mr Promise Mkwananzi were attacked a fortnight ago at Harvest House by party youths aligned to leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai.

Secretary general, Mr Tendai Biti, who was also targeted by the youth escaped unhurt.
