Zanu PF MP donates used underwear

HARARE - Zaka Central Zanu PF MP Paradzai Chakona has donated a bale of used underwear to his constituency.

Chakona has declined to state where he sourced the donation, saying it was his “secret.”

A ward chairperson who declined to named said the constituents were flabbergasted by the donation, which comprised mainly second-hand underwear including brassieres, underpants and socks.

This comes after a Mutare-based journalist was arrested a fortnight ago over a report claiming that First Lady Grace Mugabe had handed used underwear to Zanu PF’s Dangamvura-Chikanga MP Esau Mupfumi for onward donation to Zanu PF supporters in his constituency in the eastern border city.

Kenneth Nyangani, a Newsday reporter, was held in police cells for 18 hours after his arrest  and was later freed after the intervention of his lawyer, Passmore Nyakureba.

Cousin Zilala, executive director of international human rights organisation,  Amnesty International Zimbabwe, said: “The arrest ... is a deliberate tactic to harass and intimidate him and other journalists in order to deter them from doing their work.”

These are Grace donations. you think any sane person would write lies about Grace. She donated used underwear. Because it came from Grace those getting it must tell everybody they were given new underwear

This shows how Zanu pf has reduced Zimbabweans into substandard human beings.Being given used up pants,that's pathetic,these people should be punished in 2018 general elections for undermining the dignity and integrity of Zimbabweans.
