Mamombe rose on a point of privilege and challenged the 19th parliament to set up a “Privileges committee” to deal with Tafanana Zhou’s case and another one that was raised by the late Hon Kareni in 2018.
The young legislature said the Zimbabwean parliament needs firm laws for those found guilty for sexual harrasment. She accused the house of ignoring matters of se_xual abuse raised years ago.

The ZANU pf MP for Mberengwa North, Mr Tafanana Zhou is being sued for $30 000 by one Henrietta Tafadzwa Chauke for allegedly breaching a promise to marry and “wasting” her time after allegedly breaking her virg_inity.
