MDC Alliance vice president and Harare East legislator Tendai Biti, who has just been recalled from parliament, says the whole move is aimed at paralysing the Public Accounts (PAC) parliamentary portfolio Committee, Zim Morning Post has heard.
On Wednesday the speaker of parliament officially announced a notice from the PDP secretary general Benjamin Rukanda that Biti, William Madzimure, Settlement Chikwinya and Mahlangu, cease to be their members, hence they cannot be parliamentarians for the party.
In an interview with this publication Biti said PAC was on the verge of releasing damning reports of corruption in state entities.
“PAC which I happen to be its chairperson this week dragged Zesa executive chairperson Sydney Gata to explain how Kuda Tagwirei of Sakunda was awarded the Dema diesel plant without due process,” Biti said.
“We started with Dema and next was command agriculture and then Zinara. We are chronicling the corruption reports where Tagwirei is the kingpin.
“We have those reports ready so my recall is to make sure that issues to do with corruption are not brought before parliament,” he said.
In November Biti dragged the Reserve Bank Governor John Mangudya to parliament where he was grilled over non performing loans which are now under Zamco.
“The system is fighting to make sure corruption is kept under wraps,” Biti said.
Biti, however, said he is waiting for the decision of the party on whether to contest the recalls.
“We will convene as a party and make sure we come up with a collective decision.
“Remember we contested elections not under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) but under the MDC Alliance.”
