MDC Alliance vice-president Tendai Biti and his old party People's Democratic Party (PDP) have approached Parliament seeking to stop the planned recall of the recently elected Harare mayor Jacob Mafume by Khupe's party.

"Parliament has already made a decision that the MDC Alliance is a coalition and has allowed the MDC-T to recall Members of Parliament, while we disagree with that position, we have a responsibility to protect the PDP which is now part of the party called the MDC Alliance," he said.

Mafume's position hangs in balance after Lucia Matibenga's PDP faction last week wrote to Local Government minister July Moyo recalling him from council.
