MDC Says Govt Must Slash Mugabe’s Travel Budget and Remove Mphoko From His Hotel

THE Welshman Ncube led MDC says government should either reduce President Robert Mugabe’s international travel budget or cancel it altogether or evict VP Mphoko from his hotel accommodation and finance the repatriation of 32 Zimbabwean women who are stranded in Kuwait.

Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Foreign Affairs, which is being led by the speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda, is currently in Kuwait where it has identified 32 Zimbabwean maids who are victims of human trafficking.



Mugabe Attacked for Failing to Rescue Zimbabwe Women in Kuwait

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-N) formation of Welshman Ncube says it is shameful that the government has failed to assist in the repatriation of 32 Zimbabwean women stranded in Kuwait, who were promised lucrative jobs but found themselves performing menial jobs.

In a statement, the MDC-N said it is ironic that President Robert Mugabe recently travelled to New York to sign a climate change agreement, blowing thousands of dollars in the process, and yet his government cannot rescue the women and girls.
