MDC-T Vice President Nelson Chamisa has refuted claims that the MDC-Alliance travelled to the United States to ask for the extension of sanctions. He described the reports as Zanu-PF propaganda. Said Chamisa:
The fake information and propaganda in the form of sanctions was manufactured by a group of Zanu PF activists deployed on social media by senior Zanu PF officials to lie about the purpose of our visit.
As far as the Constitution is concerned, there is going to be an election in the next seven months and we are preparing for the elections.
It entails getting our message to the local and international audience.
We make no apology for making our humble endeavour to get Zimbabwe back on track.
As you are aware, re-engagement takes time and we must act now as an alternative government. We need $15 billion for the immediate reconstruction of Zimbabwe.
