Zanu-PF Buhera South legislator Joseph Chinotimba has accused Nelson Chamisa, the leader of the opposition MDC-T party of being a hypocrite. Chinotimba said that Chamisa was crying out for free and fair elections and an impartial media when he was doing the opposite in his own party. Speaking in parliament, Chinotima said,
In English, we say charity begins at home; in my constituency, a brother of mine passed away, Mr. (Morgan, MDC-T leader) Tsvangirai. At his funeral, the media was harassed when they wanted to capture the violence that was prevailing. The media wanted to capture Honourable Khupe when she was about to be burnt in the house.
..If my young brother, Honourable Chamisa wants things to be good in his party, he must, first of all, chastise his people and the party’s allied media so that people will appreciate his leadership instead of scaring people away.
We go about and say we want free and fair elections when free and fair elections were not done by the opposition party. She (Khupe) was harassed as the Vice President of the MDC, now she does not move freely because she is afraid.
My opponents should know where to start and where to end
