Speaker of Parliament, Advocate Jacob Mudenda has said that he will engage Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr Sibusiso Moyo over alleged abuse of diplomatic passports by some legislators.
Mudenda told Parliamentarians that the red passport carried a huge responsibility. He said:
The holding of a diplomatic passport carries with it some heavy responsibility.
It’s a privilege and, therefore, cannot be abused, especially in international relations.
I shall therefore have to converse with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (Dr Sibusiso Busi Moyo) and deal with the matter accordingly.
Mudenda was responding to a report by Chimanimani West legislator, Joshua Sacco who had said that there were people who were speaking badly about both president Emmerson Mnangagwa and the country yet they possessed the red passport.
For Sacco, denigrating the President and the country constituted treason.
