Just a few weeks after MDC-Alliance Vice President Tendai Biti insulted the people of Chipinge, calling them witches, another senior MDC-Alliance member has gone on a diatribe, using detestable language in reference of voters in rural areas.

During a debate on Twitter, in which Ngarivhume was engaging one David Muchuchu on the passing of Constitution Ammendment No. 2 in Parliament by a majority of 191 to 22 votes, Ngarivhume ranted; “We have a partisan parliament voted in by a largely uninformed rural populace. It is the role of the informed to fight for this country and defend those who are used as political pawns.”

Ngarivhume, appears not to have recovered from his electoral humiliation in which he contested for parliament in the Bikita East constituency in 2018.

Ngarivhume ran against ZANU PF`s Johnson Madhuku who won the election with 10 261 votes, while he managed a paltry 638 votes.
The election humiliation remains fresh on Ngarivhume`s mind, three years later and the rants are evidence he is yet to heal.
