"At the same time as are we ever going to reach that stage because our people are failing examinations because they are using a language that is foreign to them?"
The fiery MP is not so gifted in the English language either and has often confined his parliamentary debates to Shona, his mother tongue.
Chinotimba was adamant English was not the alpha and omega of life as was shown by Chinese nationals he said were part the world’s most skilled expatriates.
"Those that are from the east come here and they will be speaking Chinese. They are building structures here from presently on they are good at it," he said.
