ZANU PF MPs Scuttle Parly Probe Into Hwange Colliery Rot: Mliswa

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines Themba Mliswa has expressed dismay over the manner in which ZANU PF tried to scuttle the Committee’s probe into the financial rot at Hwange Colliery. Reports indicate that reports, three ZANU PF MPs did not want the Committee to meet the disgruntled colliery workers during the Committee’s visit last week. According to a Newsday report, Mliswa said

I am not happy that there are some MPs that are trying to scuttle the investigations by the committee on Hwange Colliery and yet this investigation is pivotal for the success of the company. It is very disappointing that they are even taking the side of the implicated minister in the issue, and it is so bad that right now I am even pondering resigning from the committee or as MP because I and other MPs are serious about trying to get this country to work again when some people are busy defending the corrupt.

Mliswa said he would take up the issue with President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the Speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda so that the MPs are dealt with as they were allegedly digressing from their watchdog role to serve party interests. MPs must not take the side of ministers or promote party interests during sittings of Parliament. Mnangagwa is clear that he is taking a zero-tolerance stance on corruption, and as MPs, we need to ensure we save the country from economic problems and collapse.
