SPEAKER, Jacob Mudenda, has expelled former MDC-T secretary general Tendai Biti and 20 other members of the splinter Renewal Team from Parliament.

In his Tuesday afternoon ruling Mudenda said Biti and his group were no longer members of the MDC-T faction led by Morgan Tsvangirai after they were expelled from the party and went on to form their own outfit under the leadership of Sekai Holland and Samuel Sipepa Nkomo.

The ruling by Mudenda makes 17 parliamentary seats in the national assembly and four in the senate vacant, a development which observers say could spell disaster for the already fractured opposition.
