Musa gets biblical in response to Barrow’s stubborn mule comment
But Musa could not end his presentation without addressing the infamous comments by the Prime Minister and directed at him at the last sitting of the House of Representatives. He came armed with quotes of his own but opted to keep it civil in the House.
“I noticed from the last meeting that the honorable prime minister was reading some Afghan literature when he used that disgusting attack on me. Well I would like to advise the honorable prime minister, since he seems to be fond of Khaled Hosseini, to go and read the Kite Runner and go and fly a kite because I will not quote the Afghan literature, I will quote from the book of Proverbs. “The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouth of a fool gushes folly”. You can call me anything Mr. Speaker—not you, well of course you can call me anything—but they can call me anything, but for me it is mind over matter – I don’t mind and you don’t matter. The people are watching Mr. Speaker; they are the ones who matter.”
