SOME MDC-T MPs Wednesday angered dozens of prospective voters queuing up to have their details captured into the Biometric Voting System when they turned up at a Harare registration centre to jump a queue that had been stagnant for nearly two hours, reported.

As if that was not enough provocation to prospective voters, MPs suddenly appeared and headed straight to the front to be served first.

Southerton MP Gift Chimanikire and Fani Munengami (Glen View North) were some of them.

Zanu-PF's Susan Chuma was among those cited as having disregarded the queue.

Former Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office, Jameson Timba was the only top MDC-T official who humbly observed queue etiquette.

Firebrand pro-democracy activist, Linda Masarira who was among a handful of civil leaders who also turned up for the process was quick to remind the MPs they were not in any better position to claim privileges ahead of the very same people whom they would depend on to bring them back to parliament.

"What is the point of jumping the queue at the expense of people who made you honourables," she said.
