THE­tom­fool­eryi­nourHouse­ofAssem­bly is get­ting out of hand.

The House is be­ing turned into a kinder­garten play ground by op­po­si­tion leg­is­la­tors who are still liv­ing in a cloud cuckoo-land in which Nel­son Chamisa won the elec­tions.

Par­lia­ment is gov­erned by rules and deco­rum, in­clud­ing ac­knowl­edg­ing the Head of State and Gov­ern­ment.

May­be­be­cause­fol­low­er­sofNel­sonare stupid, as the boy him­self says, the MDC leg­is­la­tors­think­thatthe­yare­toospe­cialto abide­bytherule­sand­deco­ru­mofPar­lia­ment.Thi­sis­not­the­first­time­suchun­be­com­ing­be­haviourhas­beendis­playedby th­ese dis­hon­ourables.

Last­time,they­walked­out­ofPar­lia­ment as the Pres­i­dent was lay­ing out the leg­isla­tive agenda for the Ninth Par­lia­ment.

At this rate, a huge chunk of the pre­cious time the MDC leg­is­la­tors were loaned­bythose­whovot­ed­forthemwill be spent out­side of Par­lia­ment.

Mean­while,the­shame­lessMPswillbe de­mand­ing their hefty al­lowances and ve­hi­cles. The more dra­matic ones will be col­laps­ing in front of cam­eras at the drop of a hat. ZANU-PF leg­is­la­tors should no­tal­lowallthe­sethe­atric­stode­terthem from serv­ing their con­stituents.

In­fact,when­ev­er­theop­po­si­tion­leg­is­la­tors,whobythe­wa­yarethemi­nor­i­tyin the House, throw th­ese tantrums, those com­mit­ted to serve Zim­babwe should pas­sas­man­yBill­sas­pos­si­ble­be­fore­they are dis­turbed by stupid fol­low­ers of Nel­son. Th­ese stupids can re­main be­hind while the rest of the na­tion moves for­ward.
