MDC legislators are confused

Dear Sir,

The opposition has been very critical of the Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Ziyambi Ziyambi for his position that opposition legislators should not expect responses from Cabinet ministers for as long as they do not accept the reality that President Emmerson Mnangagwa is the legitimate winner of the 30 July presidential elections and, consequently, the President of Zimbabwe.

The MDC-T Chamisa faction legislators should know that they can't have their cake and eat it too. They cannot please their seatless leader,  Nelson Chamisa by disrespecting and refusing to recognise President Mnangagwa and simultaneously claim to represent their constituents by asking ministers some questions to create a semblance of earning their salaries and allowances.

They are a conflicted lot which is torn between serving Chamisa and his narrow-minded politics of sabotage and being legislators under ED in order to earn Parly perks such as motor vehicles. Wasted votes, their constituents should know.

The legislators need to grow up, wake up and smell the political coffee of a ZANU PF victory and move on. Democracy is not about winning every election but enhancing the way leaders are chosen. It is not about political individuals but nations.
