In a statement, Zanu-PF Chief Whip Pupurai Togarepi said the party’s legislators have resolved to forgo luxury vehicles.
Togarepi said they also resolved to forego other privileges that come with being a legislator to allow Government direct more resources towards more pressing needs facing the country. Togarepi also called on striking doctors and other civil servants to be patient as Government implements painful policies to turn around the economy. Said Togarepi:
As Zanu-PF parliamentarians we are alive to these genuine concerns raised by doctors but also aware of Government’s fiscal position and we implore the doctors to negotiate in good faith, and with Zimbabwe and the sick people in our hospitals at heart. To play our part, however, small or little, we are ready to forgo the luxury vehicles that come with our parliamentary positions as we are representatives of less privileged people whose only access to health is public hospitals. We, as an arm of Government and also as the ruling party are ready to lead by example and make sure we put our hands together in order to rebuild Zimbabwe
