No boycott but drama in the house


Parliament resumed sitting today despite threats that Members of Parliament would boycott debate in protest against Speaker Jacob Mudenda’s ruling that they must not make unsubstantiated statements in the house. The house sat for three hours and forty minutes with the only drama being the booting out of Mkoba legislator Amos Chibaya for allegedly saying “ndokumamisa”. Chibaya protested that he had not said that but was escorted out. Shortly after that Zengeza West Member of Parliament Simon Chidhakwa complained that Gokwe-Nembudziya MP Justice Wadyajena had said “ndinokucheka musoro”. Wadyajena said he had never said so. Hurungwe East MP Sarah Mahoka swore that it was not Wadyajena who had said so but Chibaya.
