Acting MDC president Thokozani Khupe has recommended 12 sitting MPs for recall as she consolidates her power in the party.

The 12 MPs notably include Theresa Makone and female representatives from Matabeleland South and Bulawayo.

The letter of recall will be delivered to the National Assembly Speaker today.

MDC secretary-general, Douglas Mwonzora has said that all party legislators were compelled to attend Parliament on Tuesday this week or face the music. This comes after the High Court rejected an application by the MDC Alliance to stop the MDC's interim leadership led by Thokozani Khupe to stop further recalling from parliament of party legislators loyal to Nelson Chamisa.  

Mwonzora said that the interim leadership was determined to enforce order in the party and that it is not its intention to expel MPs neither does it want to vindictive. He said that the leadership does not want to victimise MPs but it was up to the MPs to act responsibly.

Many in the party in the Chamisa camp had now resigned themselves to the current political reality. To compound the problems facing MDC MPs, the government reiterated at the weekend that it would withdraw the benefits of all legislators who disengage from Parliament.
