Mnangagwa Responds To Chamisa’s Threat To Boycott 2018 Elections

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has responded to MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa’s threat to boycott this year’s elections if there are no adequate electoral reforms.

Mnangagwa’s said the elections will go on without any party that decides to boycott the polls. Said Mnangagwa:

The opposition is there to oppose. Whatever you do they have to find a reason to oppose it but that doesn’t worry me. I will not lose sleep over those who would want to boycott because that’s a democratic decision. However, that’s not the issue, the issue is whether there is a party that doesn’t subscribe to fair, transparent, peaceful and credible elections. This is what we want to achieve.

Speaking during his first rally as MDC-T president Chamisa said that he is aware of plans to rig the elections.

  1. The President’s response is very dissapointing. It contradicts all what he has been preaching to date. Of course Chamisa is saying he will boycot if reforms aimed at ensuring a fair ground play are effected. And the President is saying otherwise. If he the President guarantees a free and fair election or let me say levels the playing field by ensuring that there is a conduisive environment for a free and fair elections, then he would have proved those who are claiming that he is paying lip-service wrong. Who knows I may even vote for ED. However with this response, one is left wondering if we shall have a free and fair elections. This means to suggest the President is still in the old school of the Mugabe way of doing things. We thought he was saying we are now changing the way things shall be done in the new dispensation.

    Of course Chamisa also must move away from the Morgan way of boycoting. Remember Mugabe won the elections becourse Morgan boycotted the elections. That toturing and beating of people was good enough for voters not to vote Mugabe. Think twice before you boycot.

  2. pliz president Chamisa don’t boycott election munovajaidza havawhini zanu iyi
    Gadzirisai maballot paper asauya eNikuv aya chete
    mukadaro mapedza
    musasiya election pliz takuvara ngenhamo yakakonzerwa ngeZanu Poor Finish iyi
