Speaking to NewsDay yesterday, MDC Alliance co-principal and ZimPF leader Agrippa Mutambara said there was no point in rescuing Zanu PF through a Government of National Unity.
He said the opposition should not interfere and let Zanu-PF deliver its election promises. Said Mutambara:
The position that I think we should adopt as an alliance is that if the government says it was elected by the people on the promises that he [Mnangagwa] gave, including turning around the economy, let us not interfere. Let them deliver what they promised and as the alliance we must not be lured to join the bandwagon of Zanu PF. Let them deliver what they promised. When we said we are capable of delivering, they said a lot of things, promising economic success to the people of Zimbabwe and let them show us now. There is no need for a GNU and if there is one, I will not be part of it.
