Outspoken MDC Alliance vice chair, Job Sikhala on Wednesday confronted Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe demanding answers on why the Zanu PF top official made allegations linking him to a plot to overthrow President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Last week, Kazembe said Sikhala and former Zanu PF national political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere were making unsubstantiated claims of an imminent coup in Zimbabwe.
However, during a question and answer session in parliament, MDC Alliance MP who is also a co-vice president in the opposition party, Lynnette Karenyi-Kore demanded to know why the government had not arrested any of the people mentioned by the minister in plotting the coup.
But before Kazembe could respond, Sikhala grabbed the opportunity and told Speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda that the utterances made by the Home Affairs Minister had caused unnecessary alarm and despondency in Zimbabwe.
Kazembe later told parliament the issue was sensitive and could compromise national security.
