There was drama in Parliament as Costa Machingauta a member of parliament from the MDC-T was ejected for wearing a suit with the national colours.
Zimbabweans have over the last few months used the flag as a symbol of resistance and the opposition legislation just took the resistance to the august house.
This time it was a suit which has led to a new hash tag movement named #ThisBachi.
The drama unfolded when acting speaker ordered MP Machingauta to leave House. The Parliament’s Sergeant-at-Arms failed to evict him.
Machingauta refused to be evicted from the House for wearing a multi-coloured jacket but the police had to come in and whisked him away.
As the police got into the house, a MDC-T female legislator was also manhandled by them and was heard crying uncontrollably claiming she had been ‘fondled’ by police.
“My breasts were fondled, my breasts were fondled as I was on the floor. My phone is damaged and my tablet is no longer working. I am not a prostitute, I have rights,” said the MP
MDC-T MP Chamisa took to the podium to challenge the police storming of the National Assembly. Says female MPs were sexually violated.
The speaker of the day noted that since they were cameras in the house they were going to use the footage to see if Matsunga’s breasts were fondled.
