They appeared before the disciplinary hearing committee on Friday and their fate will be announced soon.

Midlands spokesperson, Cde Cornelius Mpereri confirmed that the hearings were conducted on Friday and the verdicts will soon be announced.

“I can confirm that 11 members of the party were on Friday summoned for a hearing over misconduct. Their fate will be announced soon.
