By Own Correspondent| Speaker of the House of Assembly Jacob Mudenda has professed ignorance over why opposition MDC legislators are being harrassed by suspected state security agents.
Mudenda said that Members of Parliament are protected by the law and the Constitution of the land.
Mudenda’s remarks follow the MDC Alliance’s claim that its MPs are routinely being harassed by suspected state security agents, the latest case being that of Harare West MP Joanna Mamombe who was allegedly stalked by a group of six armed gunmen.
I do not even know the issues pertaining to their security and why they are being harassed.
Yes, I did receive a letter from leader of the opposition in the National Assembly, Thabitha Khumalo, saying her party MPs were being harassed, and I have already dealt with the issue.
Khumalo and those that were in hiding before Parliament went for recess are now attending Parliament sessions.-Newsday
