Southerton legislator Gift Chimanikire of MDC-T has said that President Robert Mugabe’s bodyguards were embarrassing him by leaving him to struggle to walk at international conferences. He suggested that the bodyguards should cart Mugabe in a wheelchair instead. Speaking in Parliament, Chimanikire said:
We saw a video where the President was shown struggling to walk to the podium at a United Nations conference, but I observed that Presidents from other countries are wheeled to the podium.
Why did our President’s bodyguards allow him to be embarrassed and left him to walk to the podium instead of being wheeled?
