By James Gwati- Norton Independent Member of Parliament, Temba Mliswa, said corrupt Zanu PF bootlickers were behind the recalling of his fellow lawmaker, Tendai Biti from parliament.
Biti together with a number of his compatriots was yesterday recalled from parliament by their People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on allegations of no longer representing the interests of the little known political grouping.
Mliswa soon after Biti’s expulsion from parliament said the recalling of Biti and company was a sad development for him.
He said to him, the National Assembly was losing brilliant minds at the expense of what he called politricks.
Mliswa said as Public Accounts Committee Chair, Tendai Biti was extremely proficient.
“ Having been a former Minister of Finance, he was very knowledgeable. He was meticulous in his reports; it’ll be hard to fill the gap,” said Mliswa.
He also bemoaned the recalling of Kucaca Phulu saying with him gone, the Legal & Parliamentary Committee had lost an integral player.
“All the MPs lost yesterday were vibrant members who contributed immensely to Parly. If you follow the Hansard, they spoke with knowledge & detail & were diligent in their execution,” he added.
“I see this all the time, and I’m hoping come 2023, people will be wise enough, lessons must be learnt,” he said.
