VIDEO- CHAOS: Residents Furious as ‘NIKUV’ ZANU PF MP Flees Meeting
Harare residents were left furious on Wednesday when ZANU PF MP for Harare HON South Shadreck Mashayamombe fled a public parliamentary hearing called for by the Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Portfolio Committee.
Mashayamombe was fingered for disrespecting the crowd of mothers and fathers who had assembled to discuss the Electoral Amendment Bill, at the Ambassador Hotel.
At the beginning seven MPs were present, but halfway through the meeting they started to trickle out forcing chairperson, Harare West legislator Jessie Majome, to call the meeting off. Mashayambombe and five others were labelled NIKUV MPs during the furor. “These are the very NIKUV MPs who call meetings and then they disappear,” one woman said in anger.
“He is irresponsible and lacks seriousness! He should be voted out in 2018,” said an equally furious man who had gathered at the hotel for the meeting.
Harare West MP Jessie Majome was forced to apologise as she remained the only legislator left to face the angry crowd.
