Jessie Majome said ( about Innocent Gonese ) : "They then pounced from all around as some had climbed onto the stage behind us. Hon Misiharabwi leapt up in fury and certainly blocked a blow or two meant for me. She stunned the brutes into stupor momentarily. They then continued charging. In this melee some woman seized Hon Gonese's petition from him and tore it up then and there. Meanwhile I had to wrestle to keep clutching the public's views which the brutes were baying for. I was determined that they should never confiscate them and would guard them with all it takes. In that scuffle the blows that came for me injured my hand and two fingers (I had been injured the previous day at Mutoko on one of my right fingers a small cut from someone's nail in my attempt to keep holding the microphone when disruption resumed ) , as well as tear and crumple the papers, including the petition. How symbolic! Hon Misiharabwi was then whisked to safety by Hon Katsiru while I was saved by the ex Mutare mayor Jerrison, the current mayor Nhamarare's driver and some MDCT local colleagues who formed a human shield around me that shoved through the horde to the exit at the back of the hall," External link

I would want to reiterate that on reflection when you look at the provision of section 65, as PLC, we should have ruled that the Bill infringed on the rights of the workers in the sense that those companies in the special economic zones were going to be allowed to disregard the provisions of the Labour Act.

Jessie Majome said ( about Innocent Gonese ) : "They then pounced from all around as some had climbed onto the stage behind us. Hon Misiharabwi leapt up in fury and certainly blocked a blow or two meant for me. She stunned the brutes into stupor momentarily. They then continued charging. In this melee some woman seized Hon Gonese's petition from him and tore it up then and there. Meanwhile I had to wrestle to keep clutching the public's views which the brutes were baying for. I was determined that they should never confiscate them and would guard them with all it takes. In that scuffle the blows that came for me injured my hand and two fingers (I had been injured the previous day at Mutoko on one of my right fingers a small cut from someone's nail in my attempt to keep holding the microphone when disruption resumed ) , as well as tear and crumple the papers, including the petition. How symbolic! Hon Misiharabwi was then whisked to safety by Hon Katsiru while I was saved by the ex Mutare mayor Jerrison, the current mayor Nhamarare's driver and some MDCT local colleagues who formed a human shield around me that shoved through the horde to the exit at the back of the hall," External link
