There was drama when Zimbabwe`s ruling Zanu-PF on Wednesday held a caucus meeting which saw Buhera Central Member of the National Assembly Cde Joseph Chinotimba accused his Hurungwe East counterpart, Cde Temba Mliswa, of failing to support fellow party legislators in parliamentary debates.

Allegations triggered protests from Cde Mliswa who charged at Zanu-PF Chief Whip Cde Joram Gumbo, insisting that he was entitled to respond.

The altercation went on for about 10 minutes before Gumbo finally gave Cde Mliswa the floor.

MPs in attendance, at Zanu-PF headquarters, said Cde Gumbo lamented the failure to debate in the House issues affecting constituencies.
He said only two motions out of more than 13 were from Zanu-PF.

Contacted for comment, Gumbo downplayed the issue, saying “at the end of the meeting both Cde Mliswa and Cde Chinotimba embraced each other”.

He said Cde Chinotimba castigated Cde Mliswa after the latter said it was strange that Government mourned about sanctions yet bought vehicles from the same countries that imposed the embargo, instead of supporting Willowvale Mazda Motor Industries.

A source who attended the meeting said there was fear among MPs to present motions that could offend Cabinet ministers and Politburo members.

“While the MP might enjoy immunity in Parliament, he might not escape reprimand from the party, hence the fear among legislators,” said the source.- Herald
