A ZANU PF Member of Parliament has called upon MDC Alliance legislators to surrender their diplomatic passports to prove that they are really opposed to President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s claim to legitimacy.
It must be realised that the diplomatic passports were issued on the understanding that when MPs are outside the country, they represent the president who they say they don’t recognise so they should surrender them to the clerk of Parliament forthwith to show that they are genuine.
They cannot take from the president only that which suits their personal interests.
MDC Alliance MPs have hitherto refused to recognise Mnangagwa’s legitimacy, claiming he rigged the 2018 presidential poll in connivance with electoral officials.
The legislators have either walked out of parliament or abstained from coming altogether during events attended by Mnangagwa.
