MDC-T interim leadership expelled Nelson Chamisa from the party in a development that could have far reaching implications on the future of the country's opposition.

The expulsion also means that Chamisa no longer has the option to contest the party's leadership at its extraordinary congress scheduled for July 31.

Chamisa was dismissed from the party for violating constitutional provisions after he issued communication as MDC Alliance president last week.

The communication related to appointments and redeployments to the party's national standing committee.

According to Thokozani Khupe's spokesperson, Chamisa had expelled himself as a result of his intransigence in the face of the Supreme Court judgment.
