Standing Rules Committee: Chinyanganya replaces Gonese

Kadoma Central legislator Muchineripi Chinyanganya has been appointed to the Committee on Standing Rules and Orders of Parliament.

Chinyanganya takes over from Mutare Central legislator Innocent Gonese who was reportedly forced to resign by MDC-T.

Gonese who has been in Parliament since 2000, belongs to the MDC Alliance, while Chinyanganya belongs to MDC-T.

Making the announcement, National Assembly Speaker Jacob Mudenda said the appointment is in line with Section 151(7) of the Constitution.

‘’I have to inform the House that following the resignation of Honourable Gonese from the Committee on Standing Rules and Orders, the MDC-T Party has nominated Honourable Chinyanganya to be a member of the said Committee.

‘’This is in line with Section 151 (7) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe which provides that whenever a vacancy occurs in the Committee on Standing Rules and Orders, a member must be elected or appointed as the case maybe as soon as possible to fill the vacancy.

‘’Honourable Chinyanganya is therefore duly appointed as a member of the Committee on Standing Rules and Orders,’’ he said.

Chinyanganya who is serving his first term in Parliament is arguably one of the most improved legislators in Parliament.

A legal practitioner by profession, Chinyanganya has participated in a lot of debates in the House since the beginning of the year.

His performance has been so visible and has performed better than the likes of Philip Chiyangwa who is a seasoned legislator.

Chiyangwa who is very vocal outside Parliament is among legislators that have not said anything in the house this year.

Although Chinyanganya has performed well in the house, his performance in the constituency is below par.

Before joining the Douglas Mwonzora led faction of MDC, Chinyanganya was not in good books with his constituency. Some people in his areas were of the view that he is giving them feedback or consulting them.

Others actually accused him of having relocated from Kadoma and now living in Harare.

However, in previous interviews, the former Kadoma Town Council Mayor disputed the claims. He argued that he has been kept busy by Parliament work. Chinyanganya serves in the High and Tertiary Education Committee, as well as the Justice Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee.
