How Mugabe was given powers to appoint key judges with MDC kicking and screaming

HON. KHUPE: Thank you very much Mr. Speaker – [HON. MLISWA:  I have not been given the chance and I am just equal to them.] –

Mr. Speaker Sir, I agree 100 per cent with the Vice President that the votes must be verified – but my point is that, votes must be verified to the satisfaction of both sides and the only way that we can be satisfied is that two Chief Whips from MDC count the ZANU PF side and those from ZANU PF count the MDC side together with the Sergeant-at-Arms.  That is the only way we can be satisfied that the numbers are correct Mr. Speaker Sir.  We want fairness in this House. If indeed we are not hiding anything, let us do it like that.

THE HON. SPEAKER: Order, order.  Hon. Chamisa please, please be quiet.  The Sergeant-at-Arms can be accompanied by the two Whips – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.] – Hon. Toffa, please take your seat – [HON. MLISWA: I have to be part of the counting because I am an independent Member and the Chief Whips cannot count us.] –

Mr. Speaker directed the Sergeant-at-Arms to conduct a recount of Hon. Members on the right side.

THE HON. SPEAKER: After the verifications, the figure given of the results of the count is; Ayes –  182 and the Hon. Members who left are Hon. Matuke; Hon. Chinomona, Hon. Ruvai, Hon. Nyamupinga, Hon. Muchenje –[HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.]- order!

 Those against – 41. The number of affirmative votes recorded is not less than two thirds membership of the House.  I therefore, declare the final votes in the House on the Constitutional Amendment Bill to have been in accordance with the provisions of Section 328 (5) of the Constitution.
