OPPOSITION MDC-T legislator, Nelson Chamisa has urged Parliament to enforce rules and punish Cabinet ministers who don’t attend question-and-answer sessions, naming Jonathan Moyo among chief culprits.
Chamisa said parliament should also deal with those ministers who have failed to respond to committee reports and motions tabled in the House.
“We have noted that there are Ministers who are very religious and punctual to their business in Parliament. They are very consistent. I must mention that we have discovered that the Vice President, Hon. Mnangagwa, Hon. Made, Hon. F. Moyo, Hon. Mabuwa, Hon. Dokora”, he said.
“Our Constitution in terms of Section 107 is very harsh and hostile to Ministers who play truant with Parliament. I must say that there are Ministers who have become notorious and this is the point of order Madam Speaker. We have Vice President Mphoko, Hon. Mumbengegwi, Hon. J. Moyo, Hon. Sekeramayi, Hon. Mohadi, Hon. Parirenyatwa, Hon. Zhuwao and Hon. Bimha. These Ministers have not availed themselves for Parliament business”, he added.
