Vice-president for the opposition MDC-T party, Nelson Chamisa has said that his party has solutions for the cash crisis which has been bedevilling the country since 2015. Chamisa claimed that his party knew how to end the long bank queues and was ready to share the solutions with the government, but only if the new administration approached the opposition and was humble enough to listen.
Speaking to NewsDay soon after the State of the Nation Address by the President on Wednesday, Chamisa said:
The cash crisis cannot only be dealt with through statements. It must be dealt with through direct action in terms of ensuring that the bank queues disappear.
We (MDC-T) are ready to give them free ideas on how to end the long bank queues, but they do not listen, and arrogance destroys government. We are ready to give them alternatives to the cash crunch, but that is if they come to us.
Contrary to propaganda and misinterpretations, we did not go to America to call for any (punitive) measures. We have no control over American policy. If anything, we asked the Americans to continue with the humanitarian support they have been giving to Zimbabweans.
