Women around the country have castigated leader of opposition MDC-T party Advocate Nelson Chamisa for his views on young women as objects which can be used as tokens or prizes.
This follows the comments he made during a rally in the United Kingdom where he bet his 18 year old sister if the ruling party romps to victory in the forthcoming harmonised elections.
The MDC Alliance leader, in an effort to appease his band of supporters at a rally in the UK over the weekend insinuated that young girls are nothing but mere objects which can be given away as prizes in a game of poker.
This was a attempt to overstate his chances of victory in the forthcoming presidential elections as the opposition leader bizarrely suggested offering his 18 year old sister to the winner of the forthcoming presidential elections.
Women on the Move, a advocacy group have lashed out at the opposition saying his comments are distasteful and an insult to the girl child.
“As Women on the Move, we feel betrayed by Nelson Chamisa because he looks down upon women,” said one woman.
“We doubt if Chamisa will be the right leader for us as young women because he thinks that we are only intended for marriage,” said another woman.
“This is not surprising because the opposition party has never showed its seriousness with regards to upholding women rights,” another woman said.
The women advocacy group has blasted the opposition leader and demanded a public apology.
They said they doubt if the opposition leader would advance the rights of the girl child even if he wins the elections, something proving to be highly unlikely.
Since the beginning of the election campaign, Chamisa has become famous for making gaffes and making unrealistic promises to the electorate.
Before he visited the UK, he told his supporters that he was officially invited by the British government, something which turned out not to be true.
