Illegal vendors, order and Grace Mugabe

 HON. P.D. SIBANDA:  Thank you Hon. Speaker.  My supplementary question was emanating from the answer that was given by the Hon. Deputy Minister where he acknowledges that there was an order which was given but the Ministry was not overriding the order.  Then I indicated that my understanding of an order is that it comes from an office or a person that is clothed with authority and therefore, where does the First Lady draw her authority to give orders on how local authorities are governed?

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  I rule out that supplementary question – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.]- Yes, because the original – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.]- Order Hon. Members.  Can we have order?  Why are you standing up?  Order, can we have order!  Hon. Member can you sit down?  Order, order Hon. Members.  Hon. Member can you sit down?  Take your seat please.  Order Hon. Members, we have got to learn to listen.  We have procedures in this House.  The original question had nothing to do with the order which was given by the First Lady, so we cannot come back to discuss that order.  We are discussing about councils to do something with cleaning up.  So, I think we are not going to discuss about that instruction from the First Lady, no.

HON. P.D. SIBANDA:  On a point of order, Madam Speaker.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  What is your point of order?

HON. P. D. SIBANDA:  Honourable Speaker, with all due respect my supplementary question was based on the answers that were given by the Hon. Deputy Minister emanating from the first supplementary question that came from Hon. Melissa.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  Can I help you Hon. Member.  I heard from the Minister.  He did not even want to discuss what was brought in – the instructions from the First Lady.  It is the Ministry which is going to – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.]- Order Hon. Member.

HON. P. D. SIBANDA:  Why do you not allow the Hon Minister to respond?

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  No, I do not allow everything to happen in this House.

HON. P. D. SIBANDA:  No, he has got to respond – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.]-

HON. MANDIPAKA:  Thank you Madam Speaker – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.]-

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  Order Hon. Melissa.  Why are you so angry?

HON. MANDIPAKA:  Thank you Madam Speaker, my question goes to – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.]-

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  Hon. Members, Hon. Melissa, Hon. Sibanda and Hon. Chimanikire please allow me to hear what the Hon. Member is saying.
