Mayhem In Parliament As Women Manhandled By Police

As parliament drama unfolded yesterday, a female legislator wept uncontrollably alleging that a police officer had fondled her breasts and buttocks. Susan Matsunga, a legislator under Proportional Representation, narrated how she had been allegedly sexually harassed by a police officer.

“Handisi h*e ini asi ndabatwa zamu ne g*o nemapurisa. Chokwadi here kundibata zamu ini,”said Hon Matsunga before she wept uncontrollably.

Responding to Hon Matsunga’s report, deputy speaker Hon Mabel Chinomona said they would use video footages to investigate the allegations of se_xual harassment by police on the legislator.

“I have heard you, since we have video footages from the time police got into these premises, we will use the same videos to investigate the alleged se_xual harassment,” she said. Another legislator, Hon Lwazi Sibanda went on to allege that a police officer had put his hand in her skirt, tearing her under garment before she went to show the deputy speaker the torn undergarment.

The drama leading to the alleged harassment had ensued as police were called into the August House to evict Budiriro legislator, Costa Machingauta, for his dressing which was deemed unfit for parliamentary business. The police were called in after Hon Machingauta had resisted the order by the deputy speaker of parliament, who had asked sergeant- at-arms to evict him.
