Dexter Nduna, the MP for Chegutu West, made the shock claim while threatening Norton MP Temba Mliswa (Independent) during a stormy sitting of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines on Monday.
Nduna and other MPs want Mliswa to stand down as chairman of the committee over allegations that he demanded a $400,000 bribe from businessman James Ross Goddard.
The committee had to abandon a hearing with acting mines minister Jorum Gumbo after Mliswa clashed with Nduna.
With Nduna standing over him, Mliswa accused the Chegutu West lawmaker of being a thief, claiming he had taken money from the Zimbabwe National Roads Agency (ZINARA).
Nduna demanded that Mliswa withdraw the allegation that he was a thief, to which Mliswa retorted: "You are a thief. You are a double thief, triple thief."
As he walked away, Nduna told Mliswa: "There're some people that I've killed whose names I don't even know."
Later, Mliswa said on Twitter: "I've now been threatened with death! Where is the ZRP? Self-confession is an easy investigation. Must I report one who has reported himself? Or was it the avenging spirits crying out through him?"
Nduna was arrested in May last year during Zanu-PF primary elections after he fired five shots from his 9mm pistol at Chinengundu Primary School. A court heard he was angry with some processes during the voting process. The matter is still pending.
