Patrick Zhuwao ,president Mugabe’s nephew was yesterday kicked out of Zimbabwe parliament after he was found to be drunk and disorderly.
Zhuwao who is rumoured to use heavy drugs and alcohol was giggling and arguing with other legislators for no reason before he was picked by marshals.
He recently visited a prophet to get help with unknown addictions believed to be drugs and alcohol.
Yesterday Zhuwao repeatedly burst out in hysterical laughter and kept reminding legislators of his name.
“My name is Patrick Zhuwao and can you allow me to respond in a manner that Patrick Zhuwao responds,” said Zhuwao several times.
This prompted Justice Mayor Wadyajena, the MP for Gokwe Nembudziya who chairs the Indigenisation parliamentary portfolio committee to hit back at the dreadlocked minister.
“We know that your name is Patrick Zhuwao and we also have names that we love, but can you respond to the questions,” said Wadyajena who is also Gokwe Nembudziya MP.
“Minister, it is within your rights that you can excuse yourself. If you are not ready you can come back whenever you are ready.
“We can’t spend the whole day on inquiring and investigating. You had the letter for the past month. You may laugh about it,” added Wadyajena.
During the proceedings, Zhuwao failed to understand questions and to do simple tasks he usually does.
Other legislators said they were surprised by Minister Zhuwao’s conduct saying their previous interaction with him was characterised by his articulation of issues.
He was seen to be unfit and requested to leave the chamber so he would come back when he was “sober and when he understood the questions and issues involved”.
