A top ZANU PF official, Mike Madiro claims that MDC president Nelson Chamisa’s visit to Cyclone-ravaged Manicaland on Monday was merely a publicity stunt meant to lengthen his political curriculum vitae.
Madiro is the Deputy Home Affairs and ZANU PF Manicaland provincial chair. Speaking on Tuesday about Chamisa’s visit, Madiro said:
As a party, we really appreciate support being rendered by the government through various departments but we are not happy with leaders of opposition political parties who want to use this unfortunate incident to prop up their political CVs.
As we are mourning, we expect everyone to come aboard and tackle the challenge as Zimbabweans regardless of political affiliation.
Some leaders have stooped so low to the extent of bussing people from outside the affected zones and give them chickens bought in the markets as if they are genuinely assisting.
Tropical Cyclone Idai crossed into Zimbabwe on Friday, bringing torrential rains and strong winds resulting in massive flash floods and landslides which killed hundreds of people.
