Parly compromised: MP

There is no possibility of prudent debate in
parliament as the recent elections were rigged, according to Dangamvura-Chikanga member of the House of Assembly, Arnold
Tsunga (MDC-T).

“If the elections
were rigged, a fraud and not credible, can the Parliament be
legitimate as an institution? We should discuss things that matter and we should develop our
nation,” said
Tsunga.

“We cannot talk about development when we have undeserving
parliamentarians in the house. This is a disservice to millions of
voters whose votes were stolen,” said Tsunga.

Addressing the threats made by the party to expel him
for defying its position to withdraw his candidature to pave the
way for Giles Mutsekwa, Tsunga said: “I did not defy the party’s
position at all. The party is called Movement for Democratic Change
and this is the democracy that we should preach”.

“The people
spoke and l respect the outcome of the result,” he added.

Tsunga won the seat with 12,987 votes after beating Mutsekwa who had 2,764 votes and Mike Duri of Zanu (PF) who had 9,236 votes.

The MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai warned that Tsunga would be
expelled from the party if he defied Tsvangirai’s directive to
withdraw his candidature.
MDC-T spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora said the party had not yet met to
discuss Tsunga’s position.
