HARARE, ZIMBABWE: President Robert Mugabe has blasted Kenya, terming it a land of jokers that pays women in to idle and gossip in parliament.
Speaking in today morning in Harare when meeting young women leaders, referred to Kenyan women as lazy for wanting for more free seats instead of fighting for them in the ballot.
Mugabe was referring to Kenya’s current positions of Women Representatives. While responding to a local journalist who asked him if the same is necessary in Zimbabwe, Mugabe said that by creating such ridiculous position in the country, they will be lazying their women.
“Are you referring to Kenya? the country that says it is economically better than us yet their President is always abroad begging for money? That is a land of jokers. It is the only country in the world that has political slots for women who have nothing to do but idle and gossip in parliament. These women must be very lucky. No wonder they become so powerful and disrespect their men” Said Mugabe.
“You see, you can’t have a situation where you already have 47 women in parliament that are not answerable to no one. For parliamentarians, they have constituencies to run. Who does these Women Representatives in Kenya serve? Funny enough, I hear that they want 90 more women to be added on those that are already available. How do you run a country that is flooded by idle women only talking about their husbands and boyfriends? is that a gossiping house or a legislative house? That is the reason why they are always ranked as the most corrupt countries in the world” Added Mugabe.
