Temba Mliswa Banned From Parliament

Norton legislator (independent), Temba Mliswa was on Wednesday banned from six Parliamentary sittings. The ban was imposed by the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Jacob Mudenda who cited disorderly conduct in the Chamber.

The ban was imposed following Mliswa’s repeated interjections which in turn disrupted the business of the House.

Earlier on, Adv Mudenda had reprimanded Mr Mliswa for disorderly conduct that he did last week where, in a fit of rage, he charged at another legislator, not for the first time.

This is the first time advocate Mudenda has invoked the newly approved measures in the Standing Orders which were adopted by Parliament a fortnight ago allowing a presiding officer to prevent a legislator from attending sittings for a prescribed period.

When the Standing Orders were adopted, some analysts said they were meant to clip members of opposition parties in the country, particularly MDC Alliance who have been “disrespecting” President Mnangagwa by boycotting sessions he attended or walking out or singing as he steps into the chamber.

MDC Alliance members were saying president Mnangagwa was illegitimate after his ruling ZANU PF, in connivance with the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission stole the 2018 presidential election.
