MDC spokesman Jacob Mafume told ZimLive that Zanu PF was trying to deceive the country by saying they are ready to forego vehicles.
He urged Zanu PF legislators to return what they looted from the State. Said Mafume:
Zanu PF cannot give up that which has not come. Zanu PF MPs must give up what they looted from the State: the cars they have that were bought for the campaign; the money that they took from the fiscus and the foreign currency they used to buy T-shirts and all their illicit gains. How can they say they’re not going to get vehicles when they are driving them already? We have already stated that our caucus welfare demands will not be at the expense of the nation.
Mafume’s comments come after Zanu PF whip Pupurai Togarepi said the party’s MPs are ready to forego drawing from the parliamentary vehicle loan scheme to ease pressure on the government’s finances. Togarepi said their decision was influenced by the prevailing economic crisis and pressures on treasury by public sector workers led by doctors and teachers who are demanding improved pay.
