Norton MP Temba Mliswa blasted Mashonaland West resident minister Webster Shamu for thriving on bootlicking.

Shamu angered Mliswa and some delegates at a transport and infrastructural development meeting in Chinhoyi last week when he reminded people that Zanu-PF was the ruling party.

"I would also like to recognise members of Zanu-PF the party that is ruling, the party in government," Shamu boasted.

Shamu appeared to be attacking Mliswa, who had earlier reminded the meeting that other parties should be recognised since it was a government event, not a Zanu-PF function.

Mliswa hit back during the question and answer session, saying ministers should heed Mnangagwa's message that he did not want people to bootlick him but to work.

Mliswa further reminded Shamu to watch what Mnangagwa said while in South Africa when he said Zimbabwe was for Zimbabweans, not political parties.

"May I remind such ministers what Mnangagwa said while in South Africa, that Zimbabwe is not for Zanu-PF or MDC but for Zimbabweans," he said.

Transport and Infrastructure Development minister Jorum Gumbo called for ceasefire, saying high-ranking officials should not hit each other publicly but should take each other aside and iron out their differences if they felt offended by the other.

The meeting was part of Gumbo's tour of provinces.
