MDC-T nullify Ian Kay suspension

via MDC-T nullify Ian Kay suspension — Nehanda Radio  NOVEMBER 17, 2013 by Douglas Mwonzora

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) led by Morgan Tsvangirai has overturned a decision by the party’s Mashonaland East leadership to suspend former Marondera Central Member of Parliament, Ian Kay for five years. 

The Mashonaland East province suspended Kay for publicly hinting that Tsvangirai should step down after Zanu PF’s controversial victory in the July 31 elections. This was on the back of a similar call by exiled party treasurer Roy Bennett.

But party spokesman Douglas Mwonzora said it was not an offence to talk about leadership renewal. Mwonzora together with Tsvangirai met Kay to reprimand him for making public comments without following proper party procedures.

“Kay went to see the president of the party. They had discussions and they resolved matters. If we had received communication from Mashonaland East we would have advised them of these developments that took place but we did not see the letter from them,” he said.

Mwonzora said the province could only recommend certain actions to the national executive committee.

“They recommend in writing and not through the press. Recommending things to us as a leadership through the press is like giving us advice in the press, it is very difficult to work like that,” he said.

“What we have said about leadership renewal is that it should be a preserve of the members of the MDC. Therefore it is a thing that should not be discussed with members of the public or members of other political parties. Going to the press with these kinds of issues is inviting discussion from non-members,” he said.

    So there is no party protocol, chibhubhubhu ane bhora anongorovera kwakananga gumbo. Or should we say power is central and there is no confidence in provincial leadership?

    Lizi Nkala uri hure reZanu iwewe. Wakanganwa vananaJoshua Sacco, Van Hoogstraaten and Haritatos here? What colour are they??? And in any case why is colour an issue with you anyway, not to mention that Zanu is also in bed with the Chinese in more ways than one at the expense of our people heh!! And then ofcourse you even have your notorious Israeli connection as well. Those who are in the trenches fighting for democracy do not care what colour their comrades are, just as Zanu PF does not seem to care who their collaborators are with rape, murder and pillage of our once prosperous nation! The difference between MDC supporters of any colour and Zanu PF and its various sponsors is that we are fighting for freedom and justice for the people, while Zanu and it’s prostitutes are just trying to keep the gravy train rolling for their own benefit!!! Nxa!!

      Shamwari Fungai, let me ask you this. It is a well known fact that the Chinese donated millions to Zanu’s cause during the last elections. What did the Chinese donate to any other political party?? And if not, why not? It’s clear kuti which ‘horse’ they are backing and why!! Is that not meddling??

      MR Fungai where do u think we live. Who tolld u that the whites are meddling with our politics. That is a Zanu pf way of trying to cling to power accusing MDC of being a puppet of the whites. Infact the problem with your party is racism. Kay and other whites are Zimbabweans

    Nkala, stupid, ignorant fool. There are literally millions of people of colour in places like Britain who participate as full citizens, but unlike you disgusting zanoids the people there do not consider this ‘meddling’. You people use the race card just to ensure you can continue to cloak your evil greed. Your antics are worse than prostitution.

    Dear lizi, let me educate you a bit.Zimbabwe belongs to all races born here like me and other colours.You cannot change history and you are ignorant about EU because they have many blacks there who are now taking part in those countries’ politics without facing insults.I am not here to judge you because I am not your creator but try to be factual in your hatred of other races because you are destroying yourself.These seasoned politicians prey on you young people for their survival and I blame your parents who have failed to protect you against brainwashing.

    you didnt answer Mupurisa’s comments about having soem of these ‘devils’ in your party.., mboko.. and why is bona getting a degree from the devil’s country? vanhu vezanu makapusa imi

  • comment-avatar

    @ lizi the racist!!Being dim-witted as yourself which you have made abundantly clear in your comment above is the clearest indication of somebody that qualifies to be in zanupf.you have no capacity to argue a point and obviously are a government employee and reaping the benefits of supporting zanupf. You are in the minority and trying defend you and your governments ill gotten gains at all costs. Ask youself what job or credit would you have if the mdc ousted Mugabe in the recent elections.

    Lizi, iwewe unenge hauna kunyatsokwana pfungwa. Zvekunzvenga chikoro muchimhanya kumusangano handiti ka! Mr Mixed race is right kuti vana baba namai vako ndovaka dyara mhodzi idzo dzokuvengana!!
    After thirty something years you are still in revolution mode, and the people’s suffering means nothing to you and your greedy, thieving party. Just because iwewe nemazi-sugar-daddy ako hamusati manzwa zvenyu nzara nokudya madaimonds!! Where are those 2 million jobs going to come from, and now even your Chinese friends are also retrenching people!! And by the way, what’s happening with the budget?? – Perhaps your racially motivated policies & partisan politics have brought the chickens home to roost – ‘Miss Revolutionary!!!’

    If your research is correct.This would mean that our Intelligence Department failed the state,we should have heads rolling.Do not make allegations you cannot support with facts.Surely, when you enter Zimbabwe the border officials check your profile.

      Well said sir, these Zanoid commentators don’t have common sense – hudofo!!. Divide and rule politics that’s what they know. They are very quick to ‘reveal the skeletons’ in the closets of their opponents, but shamelessly ignore their very own mass graves!!

    Fungai ngwazi, you read about the wrong Ian Kay because you are an evil man who writes untruths about other people. Ian Kay is not a criminal and he never was. It is you Fungai who is the criminal. You are a jail bird yourself and you want tarnish clean people like humble old Ian Kay with your lies. Stop writing lies about people, you moron of the highest degree, go back to the extra terrestial planet that you have come from in your flying saucer from outerspace. Hatidi vanhu vanonyora manyepo about other people. God created black and white people on this Earth, and if you read about evolution you will find that,all the white tribes who exist in the world today came from us, the black Africans, we gave birth to all the white tribes who exist in the world today, we are all related because we can trace our beginnings to the first black Africans to emerge on earth millions of years ago. We are one tribe, all humans on Earth. So why hate whites?

    @Fungai…ngwazi, you are filthy liar and I am surprised that the owner of this website is allowing you to post such libel. Your ignorance and tone confirm that are Chinese and not Zimbabwean. Your masters are paying you to spread lies and deception. Iain Kay is a highly respected Zimbabwean. His electorate is mostly black and everyone trusts and values his contribution…. So go hang Fungai…ngwazi.

  • comment-avatar

    @Fungai…ngwazi. Put your real name there so we can all see who is telling such criminal lies about highly respected Iain Kay.

    To the owner of this website. You should know better than to allow the publication of outright lies and deception by Fungai…ngwazi. I have no problem with freedom of speech but I do have a problem that you allow the publication of these despicable lies.

    Fungai Ngwazi is a typical liar.Ian Kay was in Zimbabwe and was never never convicted of an offence as alleged by this Ngwazi.I grew up near his farm in Marondera and panguva yataurwa iyi . he was busy farming and i don’t know if he was convicted while farming in Zimbabwe.Haunyare manje kutaura zvausingazivi? Svee haunyare.Usangovenga munhu asina kukutadzira mhani.

    Those who use very strong language have a lot to learn about debating issues productively.When you use bad language its an indication of somebody who is frustrated and failing to reason straight like some of our politicians.In all fairness the lady Lizi used relatively strong language without prior provocation she must learn to tone down her language.Please stop being emotional and discuss the issue logically.
