National People’s Party (NPP) spokesperson Jefferson Chitando confirmed MDC Allaince presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa and NPP leader Joice Mujuru are in talks, saying these have reached an advanced stage.
Since the death of (founding MDC president Morgan) Tsvangirai in February, talks between the two parties for a coalition have never stopped and it is our hope that the talks will be concluded as soon as possible because that is the only way we can have Zimbabwe working again. Mujuru has been meeting other leaders of opposition parties lately although I cannot tell you details but it is reality that meetings have been held not only with Chamisa but with other leaders as well.
When contacted for comment by Daily News, Chamisa’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka referred questions to MDC-T acting spokesperson Thabitha Khumalo saying he was on study leave. Khumalo was not immediately available for a comment. However, Chamisa told MDC supporters at Pelandaba Stadium in Gwanda last weekend that he had approached Mujuru and Zapu president Dumiso Dabengwa.
