Mugabe's bodyguards should wheel him to podiums - MP
Harare - Southerton MP Gift Chimanikire (MDC-T) has said that President Robert Mugabe's bodyguards should not let the veteran leader walk to podiums at international conferences, but, instead, use a wheelchair.
Chimanikire was taking part in a debate in the National Assembly on a motion in reply to the Presidential speech.
He said Mugabe's bodyguards were embarrassing the veteran leader by letting him struggle to walk to podiums, NewsDay reported.
"We saw a video where the President was shown struggling to walk to the podium at a United Nations conference, but I observed that Presidents from other countries are wheeled to the podium," he alleged.
"Why did our President's bodyguards allow him to be embarrassed and left him to walk to the podium instead of being wheeled?”
