President Robert Mugabe has been accused of 'dining' with thieves and people on the police wanted list.

MDC-T legislator James Maridadi told parliament yesterday that Mugabe is protecting 'criminals'.

"Mr. Speaker, in the just ended ZANU PF Conference, where all Ministers were there, some of the most corrupt people were accredited to sit in the same House with the Head of State and Government. 

"Some of the most corrupt people, some of them are actually on the wanted list of police but they were sitting there.  The level of impunity in this country is unbelievable" the parliamentary Hansard is quoting him saying.

Firebrand Temba Mliswa was heard shouting saying Higher Education minister Jonathan Moyo is a thief.

 That was when Moyo entered parliament.

"He (Moyo) was there at the conference, but was not arrested. He is a thief," said  Mliswa.

However,  Joseph Chinotimba of Zanu PF was angered by Mliswa's remarks and demanded the list of alleged thieves.

"Hon. Mliswa said President Mugabe is protecting thieves.  We want to know the thieves being protected by the President and if he cannot tell us he should withdraw that statement" said Chinotimba.

Moyo is accused of misusing $430 000 Zimdef funds in a case that has been marred by accusations and counter-accusations amid factional fights over Mugabe's succession.
