Opposition Slept On Duty For 5 Years, Demos Will Not Change Anything: Linda Masarira

National secretary for information and publicity for the Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T faction, Linda Masarira told journalists that the opposition slept on duty in Parliament instead of working on reforming the Electoral Act and attending to issues they are now raising ahead of elections.

Masarira acknowledged that Zanu-PF had a majority in Parliament following the dismissal of legislators by MDC-T. She also said street demonstrations would not change anything. Said Masarira:

It is a clear position that the opposition slept on duty. We cannot try and protect ourselves because of the (predicament) we find ourselves in. From 2013 to 2018, honestly these issues to do with electoral reforms were supposed have been dealt with but the friction and the splits in the opposition actually caused us to be in the state we are in right now. When MPs were fired in 2015 it actually reduced the number of opposition representation in Parliament. That is why we still find ourselves in this state where we have failed to have electoral reforms because we did not have that vote in Parliament.
