According to iHarare, the legislators across the different political platforms were united in their demands, which they presented to Ncube, when he came to present the budget.
Temba Mliswa, who ran as an independent candidate from the Norton constituency was one of the outspoken MPs, who demanded better pay and perks. Mliswa said, “MPs are handicapped and we are talking of only one car, a Land Cruiser, which is the only car good enough for MPs to do their work because the Mazdas and Toyotas we get are not good enough.
Prince Dubeko Sibanda of the MDC Alliance, representing, Binga North added, “If the minister does not allocate Parliament what it requests, then he should have his 2019 budget passed elsewhere.”
When the finance minister acceded to the requests of the lawmakers, it was reported that they broke into wild jubilation on the floor of the chamber. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
