When contacted for comment by Daily News, Zanu PF spokesperson Simon Khaya-Moyo said there was no need for a government of national unity (GNU) with MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa.
Said Khaya Moyo:
The challenges we have are being addressed. So, what is the need for that (a government of national unity)?
Political analyst, Piers Pigou, told the Daily News that Mnangagwa and Chamisa should engage in dialogue that solves the cause of the problem unlike the previous GNU which was temporary. Said Pigou:
It’s high time for Mnangagwa and Chamisa to sit down and talk … but a complete solution requires national dialogue beyond political parties. As we have seen in Zimbabwe over the years, political settlements in 1987 and 2008 did not resolve the central problems, and so there must be wider conversations.
