Maridadi once again praised Chinamasa for being upright

“..I believe that if there is a man in Government, who has his heart in the right position, who is honest and sincere, it is Hon. Chinamasa.  I take my hat off to this man .

“Mr. Speaker, I say this for a number of reasons.  If you are in the opposition, it does not necessarily mean that everything that comes from the other side is wrong.  There are so many things that we oppose from the Government or ZANU PF but there are positives that also come from ZANU PF and the Government.  Hon. Chinamasa is one such positive and it must be acknowledged,” he said.

 

 

HON. MARIDADI:  Thank you Mr. Speaker.  Mr. Speaker, I have some exhibits to show to the House.  Could they be brought forward?  These will help me in my debate.

Exhibits of two blankets were brought forward.

Let me start by saying that Hon. Misiharabwi-Mushonga took two very important issues out of my mouth.  The first issue that she took out of my mouth, is the fact that I believe that if there is a man in Government, who has his heart in the right position, who is honest and sincere, it is Hon. Chinamasa.  I take my hat off to this man – [HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear.] –

Mr. Speaker, I say this for a number of reasons.  If you are in the opposition, it does not necessarily mean that everything that comes from the other side is wrong.  There are so many things that we oppose from the Government or ZANU PF but there are positives that also come from ZANU PF and the Government.  Hon. Chinamasa is one such positive and it must be acknowledged.

Chairpersons of Portfolio Committees gave their reports and the over-aching concern by members of Portfolio Committees is the fact that money is not enough for the various ministries that they oversee.  That money which is allocated to their Ministries is not even disbursed in some instances but however there is nobody in this country who knows more than Hon. Chinamasa, the Minister of Finance and Economic Development that money is not enough to go round all the Ministries.  Hon. Chinamasa knows it better than all of us here.  One thing that Hon. Chinamasa does not know better than all of us put together though is how to grow the cake.  That is what I am going to speak to – ‘how to grow the cake’ so that Hon. Chinamasa does not have unnecessary sleepless nights.

I am holding two invoices here.  One is from a company which is called Qingshan Investments and one is from a company called Waverly Blankets.  I bought these two blankets on the 23rd of January, 2017.  I have here, a fiscalised invoice.  What it means is that Hon. Chinamasa is able to collect his money from Waverly because they are fiscalised.  I have another invoice here from Qingshan Investments which is hand written.  What it means is that Hon. Chinamasa is not able to collect effectively from Qingshan  because they are not fiscalised.  They give Hon. Chinamasa what they want to give him but not what he is entitled to.

These are the blankets that I bought Hon. Speaker and I bring these blankets here for a reason – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.] –  These blankets here are sold as double bed blankets –[HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.] –
