Clad in party regalia and holding 300mls bottles of cascade drinks and empty alcohol bottles, the violent youth demonstrated against Movement for Democratic Change party led by Morgan Tsvangirai who is also the country’s Prime minister through singing derogatory songs.
“Terera unzwe kutonga VaMugabe ndivo varikutonga,Tinoita zvaJune Zvikaramba ZveInclusive Government, and to hell with Morgan Tsvangirai and his MDC puppet party ,”are some of the songs which they were singing while President Mugabe was inspecting the guard of Honor made up of soldiers from the Presidential guard.
Police did not do anything to stop the rowdy crowd.
MDC legislator for Mutasa Central Trevor Saruwaka described the action by the youth as saddening.
“It’s disappointing to note that the police are not taking any action against these youth who are denouncing some partners in the inclusive government at a venue where government business not party business is
being held, “he said.
After the end of the session an unidentified drunken woman who was leading the youth said: “We are done with the sell-out. They will never rule this country as long as Mugabe is alive. Lets get back to 4th street Zanu (PF) provincial headquarters and get into our buses, because the business of today is over.”
The procession then ran along Nelson Mandela Avenue heading 4th street en-route to their party’s Harare provincial head office where their buses were parked.
Efforts to get a comment from police chief spokesperson Wayne Bvudzijena to explain why the Zanu (PF) youth were not arrested for disturbing parliament proceedings were fruitless as his mobile phone
was not reachable.
Last week Clerk of parliament Austin Zvoma said no demonstrations were allowed by political parties during the opening of parliament.
