FULL THREAD: “Now You’re Just Speaking Alone,” Mliswa Tells Biti

Norton legislator, Temba Mliswa has said that it was useless for Tendai Biti, the vice president of the MDC led by Nelson Chamisa to be posting his grievances on social media when he boycotted Parliament where those matters are discussed.

Biti had posted on Twitter saying:

On Thursday the regime published the Financial Adjustments Bill H B 19 of 2019 in respect of which it seeks condonation of unauthorized expenditure of $ 10 679 603 044 ( ten billion six hundred & three million forty-four thousand dollars) siphoned off between 2015 & 2018.

In response, Mliswa observed that Biti was addressing the wrong audience. He said:

With all due respect @BitiTendai this is why you should always be in Parly. Commenting on Twitter won’t help. I’ve always said let’s deal with these issues in Parly. It’s not everyone who reads the Hansard or is as brilliant as you TB. How many of your MPs can comprehend this?

You have experience, you were a former Finance Minister & to you, this must be elementary, however to others it isn’t & needed your elucidation. Now you’re just speaking alone & yet may have enjoyed the support of many.

You’re commenting on something you snubbed & yet when it’s debate time you debate. The same Bills you debate on are signed by the same @edmnangagwa you walk away from &the same @MthuliNcube appointed by that very same @edmnangagwa I’ve never understood the strategy behind this.

MDC MPs have been boycotting events which were attended by President Emmerson Mnangagwa whom they regard as illegitimate.

  1. Well I think President Munangagwa must understand what really matters when it comes to removing sanctions. Committees like the one chaired by Biti are important to the Americans and Europeans in their assessment of our government’s seriousness with fighting corruption, because such committees help scrutinise government financial behaviour. Belittling, intimidating or walking out of their sessions its a confirmation to them that Zimbabwe is not serious in fighting corruption. Its like shooting ourselves on the foot really taking into account that just a few weeks ago we marched the streets of Harare against sanctions calling for their removals. Remember our people are suffering.
