Highfield west MP, Psychology Maziwisa has been labelled a homosxual by opposition MPs in Parliament.
Maziwisa had stood up to ask Energy minister Samuel Undenge to explain government policy regarding payment of electricity bills by senior citizens when some opposition MPs lampooned the Zanu PF MP, labelling him gay.
Buhera South MP Joseph Chinotimba (Zanu PF) then raised a point of order with National Assembly Speaker Jacob Mudenda saying the allegation that Maziwisa was gay had come from Musikavanhu MP Prosper Mutseyami (MDC-T).
“In terms of our Parliament Standing Orders, we need to maintain the decorum of the House and avoid name-calling which is unsubstantiated,” Mudenda said. “Honourable Chinotimba alleges that Honourable Mutseyami said that statement and can he withdraw that?”
But Mutseyami denied labelling Maziwisa hom* and requested that the Hansard recording be replayed to find out which MP said that. “I have never bedded Honourable Maziwisa and have no proof to allegations that he is gay,” Mutseyami said.
Mudenda ruled the matter would be investigated and audio and video recordings replayed.
