In an interview with The Herald, Zanu-PFSecretary for Legal Affairs Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana said Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi was correct to urge ministers to decline responding to questions from opposition legislators until they recognised President Mnangagwa won the July 30 presidential election.
The stance by Minister Ziyambi is correct. Ministers represent the President. They are agents of the President. If MDC MPs do not recognise the President they cannot be seen asking questions to them. That’s hypocrisy. We cannot continue with this childish behaviour. You want to engage the ministers but you do not recognise the appointing authority.
Lawyer and Zanu-PF Mudzi South constituency representative Jonathan Samukange said Minister Ziyambi was both politically and legally correct.
