Headlands MP, Christopher Chingosho (ZANU PF), has refuted allegations that he called First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa a prostitute adding that this was a stratagem to have him fired from the party by those who are eyeing his seat.
Speaking in an interview with Chipinge Times, Chingosho also dismissed allegations that he pointed a gun at Chief Makoni’s wife, Gwasira. He said:
Politics is repeating itself, they want me out the G40 way. It is a political game that is loading to eliminate some vocal politicians from the party especially as we move towards the 2023 election.
Chingosho was arrested on Saturday when he allegedly called the First lady a prostitute after being snubbed at a function where the President’s wife was the guest of honour. He was released on Sunday.
The function was held at the Chief Makoni’s homestead in Rusape, Manicaland Province.
Chief Makoni’s wife, Gwasira, is the complainant in the case which is yet to be placed before the courts.
Political commentator Ruvarashe Muyambo said the brave politician is being victimised because he has strong links with the G40.
Generation 40 (G40) was a ZANU PF faction that was booted from the party following the November 2017 military coup that disposed the late former president Robert Mugabe from power.
