In a wide ranging interview with the Mail and Telegraph, MDC deputy national chairperson Tendai Biti called for dialogue between his party and ZANU-PF.
He also said the dialogue should focus on issues to do with legitimacy and economic reform. Said Biti:
Firstly let us agree on what we are going to discuss. Number one, we should discuss on the issue of legitimacy. We have also to discuss the issues to do with structural reform agenda specifically focusing on electoral reform, legal reform, constitutional reform specifically focusing on state capture and militarisation of the state. We have to discuss the economy especially on how do we deal with macroeconomic stability and fiscal consolidation. We also have to discuss how we deal with the issue of huge structural reforms that are required like public service reform.
Biti suggested that Zimbabwe has to adopt the Rand Monetary Union but warned Zanu-PF will bastardise the Rand the way they bastardised the Zimbabwean dollar and the US dollar.
