Mliswa Threatens To Summon Mnangagwa To Appear Before Parly Committee Over Wicknell Tender

Temba Mliswa the chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy has threated to summon President Emmerson Mnangagwa to appear before the committee. This comes after ZESA officials confirmed that Wicknell Chivayo’s contract for the Gwanda Solar Power Project had not been cancelled despite non-performance by the controversial businessman. Mliswa was not happy that the $200 million project had been entrusted in the hands of an ex-convict. Chivayo has a prior conviction for fraud. Said Mliswa

This is time to call the President (Emmerson Mnangagwa) to come before this committee because it is absurd and shocking that we are in a new dispensation that is telling the world that the country is open for business when corruption has actually gone into the overdrive and Zimbabwe is open for criminals.

This is taxpayers’ money and with impunity, you guys are calm about entrusting public funds in the hands of an ex-convict. Who is paying you to do that? Was that a cabinet decision? We are shocked because we have never heard anything like this in Parliament. Has the State been captured by criminals?

  1. Who appoints Temba Mliswa to such positions The man has proper Criminal characteristics and changes side like a camellion he was expelled from UK for DUPING ZIMBABWEANS that he could get them visa only yo get them deported he beat and assaulted farmer’s to get his allocated farm and service station I don’t think we need guys like him to act as custodians of uprightness unless the word has lost its meaning. Now ChimuVemba ichi is threatening to summon President my foot !!!! Who the hell does he think k he is?

  2. Whats your beef Jimalo Jonki. Is the President above the law. The new zimbabwe we want is exactly that one, where a properly consitituted parliamentary committee can provide oversight to govt finances & operations. Are you part of those eating at the tender table? if not then what does the past of Mliswa have anything to do with his legitimate questions. You should be responding to why govt still hasnt cancelled that corruptly awarded tender

  3. You guys are emotional for nothing and Mliswa is off-side—you dont know the fundamental functions of a democracy—if Mliswa has evidence of whatever his beef he uist approach the courts and MAKE HIS CASE—this has nothing to do with the president—-the law is administered by the courts!

  4. There is no need to be emotional about this issue and Mliswa is way off-side—clutching at straws for political mileage from ED! There is only need to understand the basic function of a democratic process—if Mliswa has got something on Chivayo he must approach the courts and MAKE HIS CASE—this has nothing to do with the president as much as it has nothing to do with any other citizen who is not privy to the issues. The law is administered by the courts so if Mliswa has doe his homework and carried out a comprehensive investigation, he must MAKE HIS CASE at the courts instead of throwing a political tantrum and dragging the president’s name into disrepute. CHETECHETE!
