NORTON Member of the House of Assembly Temba Mliswa (INDEPENDENT) stood his ground against a COVID-19 Taskforce headed by Minister Monica Mutsvangwa in Norton, telling the Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister that he was not there to bootlick her as an argument over protective clothing for health care frontline staff took a heated turn.
Mliswa was addressing the taskforce on the issue of shortages of protective materials for health care frontline staff when he was ordered to sit down by Mutsvangwa, at which time the no-nonsense legislator went off the rails.
Mliswa told Mutsvangwa that he had spend over US$2,000 of his own personal funds and was well-informed about the challenged the staff faced, which included lack of basic soap and detergents to wash their hands.
When ordered to sit down, Mliswa went haywire.
