The Herald has reported that the MDC leader humiliated his wife on Saturday at the MDC th Anniversary celebrations. Mrs Chamisa had been given the mic to address the MDC supporters and Chamisa cut her off by taking the mic and saying he was the one to make the speeches not her. The Herald was referring to a video that went viral on social media of Mrs Sithokozile Chamisa speaking at the function.
The publication also noted response from the public as some said Chamisa is disrespectful to women and some said he treated now MDC TPresident Khupe the same way. Here are some of the reactions to the incident as published by the Herald:
Martha Chikata had this to say: “This is deplorable, @nelsonchamisa has no respect for women I said it before and will say it again. Seriously pane vanhu kudaro kuzoti pavari vega #shameful.
Another social media user, Muguti Eriazer, wrote: “That was bad. We need change in Zimbabwe, but there is something that is just not right about this young man.”
Another social media user said: “Not judging anyone . . . just an honest open discussion . . . What do you think of this, if you do this to me I will embarrass you on that stage.”
Shingirayi Mari also expressed disgust at Mr Chamisa’s conduct. “Snatching a mic like this in front of many people is wrong in all respects”.
Another one identified as Ghetoluv B Ghetoluv wrote: “Honestly it makes many pple wonder what kind of a man he is by his house. He should have asked politely so it doesn’t seem like MDC isn’t organised in terms of giving speeches. And he has to groom his wife in public speaking. So she gets known and help him campaign.”
Star Angel Ngwenya wrote: “Hmmm that was bad indeed he should have let her finish her speech. He should learn from Obama. Michelle would speak until she finished even while her husband was sitting down.
