MDC-T MP Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga on Wednesday claimed that legislators from across the political divide were abusive towards her.
Mushonga threatened to resign from the post as the chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Education. Said Mushonga:
The MDC Alliance MPs shunned joining the Education Committee because of the differences over our party president Thokozani Khupe and their party president Nelson Chamisa, and so they snubbed the committee.
… I did receive abusive messages, and some of them even suggested that I became chairperson through the benevolence of Zanu PF. I got the position through merit and not through the benevolence of Zanu PF. If they feel that it is Zanu PF’s position then they can take it back.
