Moatlhodi, famous for rolling on the ground at political rallies, on Friday pulled another stunt in Parliament when he burst into tears stating that government has neglected the people of Nata/Gweta who were affected by floods in 2017.

“Puso e tshameka ka batho ba Gweta. Re bua ka Batswana eseng batho ba Zimbabwe kana batho ba Malawi.

Their situation hurts,” Moatlhodi said as he sobbed in tears.
