Zapu leader Dumiso Dabengwa has refuted reports that he endorsed President Emmerson Mnangagwa as has been claimed. Dabengwa clarified that he had, in fact, embraced Mnangagwa’s position on devolution. Speaking to journalists in Bulawayo last week, Dabengwa said,
On the issue of devolution, all I was saying was that we have a de-jure government, a government which is there according to the laws of the land…The highest court in the country, which is the Constitutional Court, gave Mnangagwa the right to form the government and all I was saying is that in spite of our feelings about the manner in which the elections were carried out…we now have this de-jure government…I was saying let us accept the gesture, and my plea that we accept that gesture for the implementation of devolution did not and does not mean accepting or calling on our people to then embrace and endorse this government.
