Tinashe Sambiri|MDC Alliance spokesperson, Advocate Fadzayi Mahere has dismissed Auxillia Mnangagwa’s so called national dress arguing cultural matters are deeper than the cloth.
Advocate Mahere also described Auxillia Mnangagwa’s controversial dress code as meaningless and divorced from ordinary citizens.
“The people must be included in all matters that affect them.
Elite-driven imposition of matters such as “dress” won’t secure buy-in.
Citizens must trust the process and understand the intended objective before they can get on board. Lessons should have been learnt from “the scarf”.
You can’t microwave culture, identity or national symbols. It’s deeper than a piece of cloth.
There are matters of social cohesion, plurality, national unity & common understanding that must precede such an endeavour,” argued Advocate Mahere.
