Norton representative in the National Assembly Hon. Temba Mliswa this afternoon said defeated MDC Alliance leader Advocate Nelson Chamisa needs help from a psychiatrist adding he is showing signs of depression after losing both the 30 July harmonised elections and the consequential court challenge of the election results.
Miliswa’s comments come after Chamisa told a rally on Saturday that he would hold an assembly that would swear him in as president this week after his elusive attempts to challenge the results announced by Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) of the presidential poll.
Speaking to journalists in Harare this afternoon Mliswa said Chamisa is breaking the law and if he is arrested people should not complain because it is a threat to national security and people should not be excited.
“I understand when one loses you certainly go through a phase and some require psychiatric attention because it’s not easy and I meant that.
“There is a depression that one goes through and you might be laughing but he needs help right now from a psychiatric point of view and I don’t understand if his people are going to see him being sworn in and they (MDC Alliance members) are ministers, in which government will they serve?
“What will they do? Unless he is going to appoint shadow ministers,” remarked Mliswa.
Mliswa added that he likes Chamisa but “the more he talks the more he exposes himself.
“We were in parliament just now; all the members of parliament were there and have taken oath they are in the institution; they have ignored him.
“They will be there but they are being paid here, so if you believe that your president won why are you in parliament and why is he not the head of state?
“So you are going to be made ministers? I would like to see at question time how they are going to answer questions unless they’ve got their own parliament that they are also building,” said Mliswa.
Chamisa told his supporters in Chitungwiza that he is going to name his cabinet in the coming few days.
