A Daily News report claims that President Emmerson Mnangagwa and opposition MDC president Nelson Chamisa have started indirect talks to unlock the country’s political logjam.
These reports, if confirmed, would bring hope to millions of long-suffering Zimbabweans who have had to deal with acute shortages of fuel and medicines among other things and a high cost of living.
Historically, Zimbabwe has had periods of relative calm and prosperity whenever polarised politicians have come together to resolve whatever differences they could have. The 1987 Unity Accord between ZANU PF and PF ZAPU in 1987 and the Government of National Unity between ZANU PF and MDC-T in 2009 were followed by a period of relative prosperity.
