Nelson Chamisa Apologises For Joking About Giving His Teenage Sister To Mnangagwa

MDC-T president Nelson Chamisa is reported to have apologised for saying that he would give his 18-year old sister to President Emmerson Mnangagwa if the Zanu-PF leader garnered five percent of the votes in the upcoming election. In an interview with South Africa’s News24.com, Chamisa said,

The joke should have been a non-issue because most Zimbabweans are worried about issues of survival. This is just a sideshow that is being used by irrelevant people to score cheap political points at my expense.
