Maridadi blasts ZANU-PF members for being hypocrites-  One day they are singing praises for Mugabe and Grace, the next for Mnangagwa and Auxillia


The same people used to do that in the previous dispensation. They would drive around. In Mabvuku and Tafara what they would do is they would get a piece of land and Hon. Kashiri here knows it, they would come to an area, find an empty space, take a flag which is written ‘ Munhu wese kuna amai’ put it there and the rest is history. Police cannot even come there and cooperatives are given names such as R. G. Mugabe, Grace Lands, Amai Mugabe Cooperative, ZIM ASSET and what have you.

Madam Speaker, I am going to repeat myself for the purposes of Hansard. A Member of Parliament from this House, Hon. Chinotimba, in an interview said Grace Mugabe is a prostitute. Madam Speaker, that must never be repeated – [Laughter.] –

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order. Hon. Chinotimba, could you please take your seat. Hon. Maridadi, I think you should refrain from repeating yourself.

HON. MARIDADI: I was doing it because he is here.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER: No, I do not allow you. Just continue with your debate. Also mind you…

HON. MARIDADI: Okay the light is on, that is fine but I have dealt with them.

HON. CHINOTIMBA: On a point of order, Madam Speaker.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER: What is your point of order Hon. Chinotimba? Hon. Maridadi, could you please take your seat.

*HON. MARIDADI: That is what they would also do when former President Mugabe was there.

*HON. CHINOTIMBA: Madam Speaker, you have warned Hon. Maridadi that he is repeating himself. My point of order, is I once had a discussion with Hon. Maridadi and informed him that this august House it is not a place where you have to snatch other people’s wives and he is repeating that. He always wants to snatch other people’s wives because he is a radio personality – [Laughter.]-

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order, order. Can we have order please? Order! Hon. Maridadi, would you please wind up.

HON. MARIDADI: Thank you. This is a very good House, Madam Speaker, because even those that have nothing to say are also given a platform to just show their ignorance and to share their ignorance. It is okay.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order Hon. Maridadi, this is where you go wrong.

HON. MARIDADI: I am sorry Madam Speaker…

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER: I said please proceed and wind up, just concentrate on your debate.

HON. MARIDADI: In conclusion Madam Speaker…

HON. HOLDER: On a point of order Madam Speaker.

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