    HARARE: Infighting in Zimbabwe’s main opposition party intensified on Saturday, with a splinter group announcing it has suspended leader Morgan Tsvangirai for violence and violating the party’s constitution. The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) faction said it suspended former Prime Minister Tsvangirai, his deputy Thokozani Khupe, chairperson Lovemore Moyo and four other senior party officials. The group, which includes party secretary general Tendai Biti, said Tsvangirai had violated the MDC’s constitution by expelling deputy treasurer general Elton Mangoma, who had called for his resignation. “This council has suspended Morgan Richard Tsvangirai [as party leader],” Samuel Sipepa Nkomo, acting chairperson of the splinter faction, said after a meeting in the capital Harare.
