I’m a Grade Two drop-out: Zanu PF MP

via I’m a Grade Two drop-out: Zanu PF MP 06/01/2014 NewZimbabwe

MEMBERS of Parliament forget their constituencies because of prostitutes and the high quality hotel life they get exposed to during parliamentary sessions, Kwekwe legislator Masango Matambanadzo has said.

Addressing hundreds of flea market and vegetable vendors on Saturday, Matambanadzo, who won his first term of office in the July 31 elections, said he had come across very beautiful prostitutes accosting MP’s at their hotels.

“The life up there is tempting with very beautiful ladies of the night, some of whom pretend they can’t even speak Shona coming to hotel rooms with your MPs this is why they forget you,” he said.

“They only come back after five years so that you can renew their life in the hotels and the good and beautiful ladies in their rooms.”

Matambanadzo, however, said he would not forget his constituency and would continue to empower the poor.

“I am a Grade Two dropout who needs a lot of time to go through papers given in Parliament and my interests are to ensure we uplift the lives of the poor, so I will not be swayed by ladies of the night or high hotel life like the others before me,” said Matambanadzo.

The MP launched a co-operative which will see flea market and vegetable vendors contribute a dollar everyday towards a common fund which will be managed by the MP’s wife.

Matambanadzo said the money will be used to assist the vendors with capital and to fund other projects like housing.

“I will send you to China to buy stuff for resale and even talk to council so that we get stands to build houses for all the members in the association. We need at least 5,000 members who pay a dollar everyday towards this fund,” he said.

In the face of massive collapse of industry in Kwekwe most people have been reduced to flea market vendors, illegal gold panners and commercial sex workers.

Matambanadzo said he hoped the project would see him change the lives of the people who voted for him in the past elections.

“I might be a Grade Two dropout, but my brains are big and I am going to change the lives of the people in Kwekwe,” he said.

      You are not necessarily a dofo if you drop out at grade 2. Seeing that he is an MP now shows he is actually jacked up!
      Drop outs are sometimes quite clever up there.

    Upenyu imhindupindu. Honourable MP, dark as is, known in Kwekwe as ‘Blackman’. Working as a cameraman achitora mipikicha pamichato. Oh remember that baggy trousers raisungirwa padumbu nemashades akabayirwa pabhibho. Then there was the ‘gold buying’, then Blackman milling and the small shops kuAmaveni. Then MP, wabuda Blackman. Asiwozve all these years wakatadza kuenda kuchikoro, just to stech those brains. Zvaunodada nazvo, zvinosvodesa for someone who has made a reasonable bunch. Unless you admit that there’s nothing much under the bhibho. Of which we then question, how dare you claim to lead us ‘the most literate people in Africa’.

    I despise zanupf but respect this guy for his honest frankness. He might show up his useless degreed mentors for the uneducated fools they were. I hope he will refresh a geriatric moribund pathetic parliament. Good luck

    Mmmmm $5000.00 per day x 7 x 4.3 x 12 is a lot of money, will it be adequately audited? Educational qualifications have nothing to do with basic honesty…

    I wish all parliamentarians were like you in terms of caring for their constituences, and may we see the fruits of this project. Do not channel the donations into personal use,$1 825 000 a year is a lot of money and can help revive the economy though on a small scale and can be a good lesson to the sleeping parlies. The future of Zimbabwe is in our hands, wake them up and let them see the light. We really do need parliamentarians like you irrespective of your education. I salute you.

    His honesty is laudable, hopefully it will last. All the same,”You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.” Hanzi; “I will send you to China to buy stuff for resale…” One of the roots of our economic malaise.

    It sounds to be a good idea but the problem is his wife, why should she manage the money if she is not a member of the scheme. vendors think twice before u contribute your hard earned money into this. my advise is without the mp and his wife you as members you can still do this what u need to do is go to the bank with your contribution open an account put your daily contribution into that account for a year, and ask/apply for a loan to start a better business, that businees has to be managed by the bank until that loan is payed up not by the mp or his wife. musakanganwe razuro nehope vanhu imbavha. kana mp achida kupedza hurombo mudunhu make adi kukumiririrai kuti mupihwe chikwereti kubank muvambe mabhisimusi enyu. makapusa mari yenyu inopedzisira yakuendesa vana mp kuzvikoro zviri mhiri kwemakungwa

    You’re cheating the vendors out of their money sir.A dollar per day will be 30 dollars after a month multiplied by 5000 investors thus 15000. That is a lot of money sir,why don’t you and your government lend these people this amount and they can then pay back on installments.
