Outspoken independent Norton Member of Parliament Temba Mliswa has dismissed rape claims on President Mnangagwa and other senior government officials by Susan Mutami as politically motivated.
Speaking to journalists in Harare early Friday, Mliswa who was in possession of printed WhatsApp messages between Mutami and Politburo member Kenneth Musanhi said Mutami could not be trusted.
“We cannot have little girls whose profession is well known, just getting up speaking from nowhere, ‘I was abused’ this and that Í was young’ this and that and so forth and you are talking about this years later. If it is that you want to expose this person who abuses, why do you not do it earlier? The issue is to deal with the perpetrators and you deal with them on time, so how sincere are you about being abused by somebody whom you still go and see face to face,” said Mliswa
He added “The credibility of the person is critical, the very same person told you she was expecting twins and even put the twins on Twitter again but now there is one.”
Mliswa dismissed claims by Mutami that he impregnated a Form two student before forcing her to abort.
“So where is the girl in Norton, what is her name, what are her parents saying, ‘they are running scared’ but you are exposing the President, the number one citizen and you are not scared yet the family in Norton which you allege her daughter I slept with are. When you cease to help her she will attack, it’s a trend. When she gets dumped she gets emotional and finds stories,” said Mliswa
The Norton legislator said he will on Monday file a report with Queensland (Australia) police on the disappearance of the other twin that Mutami claimed to have had during her aborted relationship with Mliswa.
