WITH Zimbabwe's economic crisis seemingly deepening following the announcement of new fiscal measures that include scrapping of a ten year old multi-currency regime, an opposition MP has demanded that President Emmerson Mnangagwa appears before Parliament.

Opposition MDC Proportional Representation lawmaker Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga speaking on a point of privilege demanded that Mnangagwa and his while Cabinet must appear before Parliament to explain their response to the current economic crisis.

"We want to engage the President together with his executive, the rest of the Ministers should also be there. This is not about political parties but it is about Zimbabwe," Misihairabwi-Mushonga said.

The tough-talking legislator suggested that Mnangagwa had been abandoned by his Ministers in the fight to resuscitate the economy.

"It seems the President is on his own now and we cannot leave the situation like this when things have reached this level," Misihairabwi-Mushonga fumed.
