Opposition coalition CORD cracks the whip on rebel legislators

09, Feb 2016

The opposition coalition, CORD, appeared set to crack the whip on rebel legislators when it dropped Lunga Lunga MP Khalib Mwashetani from the influential house business committee upon resumption of parliament sittings this afternoon. According to CORD the move is part of the measures to tame members who do not toe the party line. A number of legislators have shifted allegiance from parties that sponsored them to parliament with the registrar of political parties saying weak laws curtail her office from disciplining the so called party hoppers.
