Government sends laptop SOS to Chamisa

The Speaker of the National Assembly, Jacob Mudenda, has handed over a written request by cabinet ministers and members of parliament to MDC-T lawmaker for Kuwadzana and former ICT minister, Nelson Chamisa, to help source laptops for them.


Chamisa, as a cabinet minister in the government of national unity promoted a computer technology drive, and the request indicated that his services were missed.

Chamisa, who chairs the committee, said he would do his best to meet the request.

This year, the budget allocation for the ICT ministry provides for only 166 laptops – not enough for all legislators. “I am humbled by the recognition given by the country’s lawmakers for the contributions I made as minister in the GNU. This was a clear reflection of the legislators’ confidence in me,” Chamisa told The Zimbabwean in an exclusive interview.

Chamisa said the request for laptops for MPs was reasonable, since information technology was an invaluable tool in modern life.
