Speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda said President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s scarf is not part of the attire but a trademark.
Mudenda was responding to MDC Alliance MP Trevor Saruwaka who had complained why “MR” Mnangagwa always wears the national colours on his scarf when he (Saruwaka) was once sacked from Parliament for wearing a jacket of the same colours. Mudenda responded:
I am not aware of someone called Mr Mnangagwa. He is President Mnangagwa. The scarf is not part of the attire. It is a trademark.
I urge anyone else to look at the Oxford dictionary and compare with Section 76 of the Standing Rules and Orders and see what it says.
A couple of years ago, the government banned the casual use of national flag colours as well as those resembling military fatigue by locals.
