  1. Thieves and looters showing off suits when Zim children are naked and starving next door. Shame on them! Theatre of the absurd!

    • God has nothing to do with it. he gives us life and freedom to choose who to govern us (elections). don’t blame him!

  4. Top of the range cars, designer suits, hefty salary packs, rampant corrupt activities in an ailing economy whilst they are uttering of reviving the economy. No Logic

  5. @ lola, u are stupid. hw can u say pipo are rich wen it’s ill gotten wealth? wealth that is acquired through ill means is no wealth at all. nonsense

  6. when you see all this happening the end is not yet come , this is just the beggining of trouble, well ,in the last days people are going to lovers of their ownselves , proud, boasters ,…..you know the list .

  7. All that glisters is not gold. Looking at these filthy rich people, one would think they have no problems. At night these wealthy pple never sleeps a wink.

    One for you one for me
    Zvekufanana kwemazimota ndosiira kwamuri!!!

  10. but honestly guys u cant expect our ministers to be poor ,if u wer the one in that position it is an obvious case that u will drive a nice car and wear nice cloth ,

  11. asi bhutsu ya driver wa oppah muchinguri haitti kuti uti munhu akaremara kanakuti warezva kupfeka bhutsu hameno zvayakaita ,

  12. Reviving the economy ! Ja neh and these guys don’t even pay their workers at all , what’s the whole point of having a minister of Primary and Secondary education , what happened to the minister of education ? These guys are spineless

  13. Hapana rugare apa musambova yemura vazhinji vacho varikubata mishonga vamwe vane zvikwambo hapana anonamata pavanhu vese vaburitswa kunze kwaChamisa Sekuru vangu in’anga yamakoko vamwe ndosangana nhavo husiku pandinomboshanyira sekuru vangu There were more than 200 MPs and Sanators from Zanu Pf and almost everyone wanted to be a minister saka unotoromba zvakasimba kuti ugone kusarudzwa + vamwe vasiri ma MPs sana Made there were appointed to ministria positions kma MPs achisara kuromba kwese ikoko Kuma families evanhu ivavo hakuna rugare kwakazara mapenzi ne ndufu hadzipere Hauna kona vamwe vakabuda mugomo rekuChinhoyi vakabvisa bhutsu pa n’anga vachifunga kuti pure diseal rinowanikwa mugomo Vano believer mun’anga zvekuti vakatadza kuziva kuti fuel ino mainwa yozo proseswa

  14. its comforting to know where all the money is going. Without sanctions they could be flying private jets musi.

  15. hameno bt is this not wat any minister shld wear? A suit…even if u go to any function @ a rural school, you will see all of the teachers and invited guests eg masabhuku & local councillors in suits bt ofcourse not as expensive bt in that village vanenge vachitotyisawo. Here we ar talking abt ministers, big people running a country, surely one shld expect them to be smartly dressed @ such a function & it goes without saying that all shld cm in good vehicles….l dnt see anything amiss here

  16. Wait until 2008/9 revisits us, okuyizisu kuza swaba. Has anyone notice the amount of toilet rolls in the supermerkets; history has a habit of repeating itself. Whatever I harvest this time I keep ngoba ukuzayo kukhulu.

  17. Saka zvoreva kuti Chamisa ndeve ZANU handiti? Basedon his love letter to Mugabe that was exposed by Saviour. Ndosaka abuda pa this collage of pictures among his peers.

  18. wow. Majagwa akanaka. Masuit heavy style. Are these people in touch with reality? I think not. One of these guys should spent a day in the ghetto and witness for themselves the misery,hunger and hopelessness in the streets. Isu tinenge takabatwa ne bronclear takutotya kufamba coz unotsika madomasi emunhu coz everyone is selling something. Ma one edu aya.

  19. things wil neva be the same ticharamba tichisafa kusvika riini vamwe vachiramba kuchembera kudai ndiani akavaudza kuti ndiwo vanogona kurunner Zimbabwe

  20. Meanwhile David Parirenyatwa condemned Mpilo Central Hospital as unfit for purpose. Worth demolishing and replaced by a new hospital! We watch and wait where this luxury pomp and ceremony takes us to! Maybe designer suits and flashy cars is what these guys fought for. Ambitions differ! Pamberi ne Povo. Phambili labantu!

  21. y is it that the reporter only showed mostly ZANU PF MPs? U should not deceive the public in a one sided view. being a politician is a carrier n pple ve to stop being fooled into thinking that one political part has the interest of people at heart. these politicians think of themselves first before everyone else. sacrifice was done during the liberation struggle n nw pple r enriching themselves save for a few. i dont understand why pple who claim to be God fearing want their fellow citizens to be hungry in order for a certain political party to rule this country. fellow Zimbabweans lets work for the development of our country n welfare of our children n stop sabotaging others’ efforts trying to potray them as bad. during the GPA most debates in parliament were centered on their welfare. the rival parties disagreed on almost evert except on need to increase allowances and acquisition of latest cars. wake up zimbo and stop bein used to achieve other ppls’ goals.

  22. You are funny guys. So you wanted them to be in 323s or PG720s and put on summer T shirts and slippers to show that they have you at heart. Come on guys

  23. So what is the news value of this article? It is well known that MPs must attend parliament dressed in formal attire. It is also well known that MPs drive nice cars which they are entitled to. So where is the news or have you never seen a man in a suit????????????

  24. When I look at Zim government people.. all i think is mbavha! So cruel for people to just let other people suffer because of their greed.. Hutsinye husingaaiti

  25. Where is Fred Moyo the thief who looted @ Hwange colliery company and nw the workers have for almost 8 months without pay. Come on arrest him if you have any conscience @ all!

  26. ummmm what am seeing here has inflicted a pain in my heart ,these zanu morons are living large like these whilst the nation is suffering.God watch this!

  27. Hatitarisiri kuti vafambe nema 323, but mota dzisinganyanyi kudzura. PaWillowvale panemota dzakanaka chose, asi vanoda zvinobva kunze chete. Zim is a poor country, there is no reason why they should drive flashy cars like we are a super power. Thats why they are out of touch with reality.

    • Communist, not just capitalism but life in general everywhere even in the rural areas. To those who have little the little they have will be given to those who have? For those who do not see the point of the story in pictures, it is clear that the poor are alone and should not expect any help from the rich guys pictured here who have their welfare at heart first, second and third even fourth? Civil servants forget the promises, you are on your own?

      We put those people in power and now we know they will not deliver on their promises? Do we have the power or that was also taken from us. That being the case, we are doomed?

  28. All have good suits and cars tazvinzwa.Ko kanjani gazi racho?Rugare rwepano pasi kudenga aziko.Be careful of expiring date…best before 2015 written at their backs.
