Alfonce Mbizwo, the News Day Assistant Editor, Everson Mushava, News Day Chief Reporter and Veneranda Langa have claimed that ZANU PF’s recent actions in Parliament show that the ruling party is so desperate to have the endorsement of the opposition MDC led by Nelson Chamisa.
ZANU PF legislators have been disrupting Parliament business to punish MDC legislators who snubbed Parliament events attended by President Emmerson Mnangagwa saying he was illegitimate.
For the trio, the actions of the governing party have a huge adverse impact on Zimbabwe as a nation. In their Saturday article they observe:
It was informative that the first disruption was made to prevent Sakunda Holdings executives from presenting evidence to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) over the unaccounted for US$3 billion in public funds the firm received for government’s much-vaunted Command Agriculture programme.
The writers observe that the public will never know how and why their funds were used until the MDC has recognised Mnangagwa’s legitimacy.
They note that the corrupt activities of some individuals will go unchecked for as long the stand-off between ZANU PF and MDC which started in 2018 continues. The MDC claims Mnangagwa rigged 2018 elections.
