Two Zanu PF MPs exchanged harsh words as parliamentarians  toured Sable Chemicals.

“Why are there no women there? It is wrong. You should address that first,” Biata Nyamupinga (Goromonzi West) told Sable Chemicals chief executive officer, Bothwell Nyajeka.

Nyajeka tried to answer but Nyamupinga was not convinced forcing Justice Wadyajena to intervene.

“This is not a women and gender committee, this is a Lands and Agriculture Committee and we must stick to the reason we are here. We should not bring confusion and chaos here. This is not the forum for such issues, honourable members, let us be guided accordingly,” he said.

When it was time for introductions, Nyamupinga rekindled the issue, saying; “My name is Honourable Biata Nyamupinga, I represent the women and men of Goromonzi West.”

Wadyajena later hit back in his closing remarks, claiming some MPs had been affected mentally by prospects of losing their seats in the forthcoming polls, “hence their wayward behaviour”.

“Forgive some MPs, who misbehaved, it’s pressure from constituencies. They may not make it back,” Wadyajena said.
