HARARE - In a strange development that is likely to shake the opposition MDC to the core, the party’s rebels led by Tendai Biti on Saturday claimed to have suspended party leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
They also claimed to have suspended other top officials including vice president Thokozani Khupe, Nelson Chamisa, Morgen Komichi, Douglas Mwonzora, Abednigo Bhebhe and Lovemore Moyo.
Biti who was addressing some party rebels in Harare this afternoon said the suspension was due to a breach in constitution by Tsvangirai.

He said the suspended individuals were promoting violence while at the same time purging targeted members of the party on personal grounds to “promote individual interests.”
Biti said the suspended individuals had diverted from the key values of the party.
