Norton MP Temba Mliswa (Independent), has criticised women parliamentarians saying that they do not have the intellectual capacity to be legislators.
Mliswa made the remarks while speaking at #TheHubUnconference during the opening platform of Shoko Festival in Harare on Friday. He said:
All they do is gender, gender, gender; there are 63 seats for women to push. Who are the women in parliament? Where are they?
They (women) are there but they do not have the capacity, they do not have the intellectual capacity.
Neither the business acumen to be able to drive the agenda of women. Once again that is a waste of tax payer’s money.
Mliswa argued that the seats allocated to female MPs should rather be given to the disabled as they have failed to utilise them.
