Norton MP Temba Mliswa praises Nelson Chamisa’s MDC, urges Zanu PF to retire old leaders


Norton Member of Parliament Temba Mliswa says if he is to sit in another Parliamentary portfolio Committee he would choose the one that is led by an MDC MP than a ZANU PF one.

In a tweet on Friday Mliswa said, “If I have to sit in a Parly Committee, I’d prefer it to be chaired by MDC as opposed to ZANU PF as it’s a waste of time otherwise.”

Mliswa went on to praise MDC for the democratic process that is happening within the party during the ongoing preparations for the congress.

Red his full statement below:

Looking at the MDC Congress, I’m encouraged to see young people like Prosper Mutseyami the MDC Chief Whip and Dangamvura MP coming in as Manicaland Chair and Prince Sibanda Parly Chair for Info, Publicity and Media coming in as Mat North Chair and Hwende coming in as SG.

This is the generational consensus, as I’ve advocated for. However not being a youth doesn’t stop one from pushing the generational mandate and I’d expect elders to do so. Mnangagwa has a challenge in that the Cabinet isn’t that young but they must deliver what the generation expects.

Chamisa, I’m encouraged to see this leadership renewal. ZANUPF must pull up their socks and retire the madhara at HQ as they’re killing the Party and aren’t the answer to the new dispensation.

Talk of Mutasa wanting a position is neither here nor there, one thing I’m proud of my Sekuru is even after he left Government there wasn’t talk of him in shady deals. He was a loyalist to Mugabe and has had all the positions he needs in life. His value is in being in a Council of Elders.

Kudos to you Sekuru you’re back home in the Party with a clean slate, a servant of the People and a Minister free of controversy, well done Sekuru. Mugabe’s downfall was letting people like you go.
