Opposition legislators have criticised parliament for not showing images from the Government of National Unity (GNU) in the ongoing parliament exhibition. Images of the 7th parliament which served from 2009 to 2013 have been excluded in the exhibition, something which the opposition claims is a deliberate move by Zanu-PF to distort history.
MDC spokesperson Kurauone Chihwayi said
It shows that the exhibition was organised with evil intentions not to correctly tell the correct Zimbabwe story,
Zanu PF is the people’s number one enemy known for distorting Zimbabwe’s history and hiding important information for young people. We are dealing with dishonest and unprofessional ZANU PF activists in this country.
MDC-T legislator Jessie Majome added:
If it’s acceptable to show pictures of former white parliamentarians, it’s strange to be forced to think they hate us that much
…Anybody who might not know might actually not realise that that very critical interruption of previously uninterrupted rule of Zanu PF happened. They think it just continued by it didn’t. It’s a fact.
…There are people who are even not in political parties, if it should let’s just depict correctly even if we don’t like them.
