Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T spokesperson Linda Masarira has criticised MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa for promising to give his Zanu-PF rival Emmerson Mnangagwa his sister if he manages to get 5% of votes.
Masarira said Chamisa’s comment shows that he has no regard for women in the country. Said Masarira:
It shows that he has no regard for women in this country. And you can compare it with the way he has treated women in his own party, the way he treated Madam Thokozani Khupe. It really shows that he has no regard whatsoever for women because you cannot trade your own sister for political mileage. Even if he wants to call it a joke, you cannot joke about such sensitive issues in this day and age.
Chamisa’s speech has drawn mixed comments on social media.
