Roman Catholic Priest Father Fidelis Mukonori has spoken on the role he played as mediator between former President Robert Mugabe and the Zimbabwe Defence Forces led by General Constantino Chiwenga.
Mukonori said that the negotiations were based on being honest with each other. Said Mukonori:
It was something where we had to stand with the truth. What was important was to be frank with each other, telling each other the truth without emotions, but seeking the truth because that is what God wants. It is the work of God. There is a time when one has to rest while another person continues.
Father Mukonori said his mediation role dated back to the liberation struggle and later between Zanu-PF and MDC where he chaired some meetings.
