Norton National Assembly representative Mr Temba Mliswa yesterday blasted MDC-Alliance leader Mr Nelson Chamisa, saying he urgently requires a psychiatrist.

This was after Mr Chamisa announced last week that he was appointing himself president of Zimbabwe and constitute a Cabinet.

Mr Chamisa lost the July 30 elections to President Mnangagwa in a peaceful, free, fair and credible election.

Addressing a Press conference in Harare, Mr Mliswa said plans by Mr Chamisa to appoint an alternative Cabinet were unconstitutional.

"Chamisa is breaking the law and he might get arrested," he said.

"I urge law enforcement agents to protect the people because it is a national security matter. I understand that when one loses, you certainly go through a phase in which some of it requires psychiatric attention. It is not easy.

"There is a depression which one goes through. He needs help right now from a psychiatric point of view. I do not understand why people would go and say we are being sworn in. In which government will they serve and what will they do unless if he is going to swear-in shadow ministers?"
