MDC-T Proportional Representation MP Mrs Susan Matsunga wept in Parliament yesterday alleging that some police officers had fondled her breasts.
“I’m not a WHoRE but some police officer fondled my br-easts,” said Mrs Matsunga, amid sobbing, drawing the attention of legislators. Bulawayo Metropolitan MP Ms Lwazi Sibanda (MDC-T) also complained that her clothes had been torn.
Kuwadzana East MP Mr Nelson Chamisa said there was no legal provision that warranted the use of police to enforce a directive. “MPs are supposed to be respected and the issue of dressing cannot be cured by summoning police officers. Until we get an explanation, we’re unlikely to co-operate with the chair. Why were police officers brought here violently and yet we know that there are criminals out there including ministers?
We will not allow you to make a ruling that ousts the rules,” said Mr Chamisa. Cops moved in to eject MP Costa Machingauta who was dressed in a jacket with the national colours.
