Reports indicate that former South African President Kgalema Motlanthe has offered to mediate between President Mnangagwa and opposition leader Nelson Chamisa in talks to deal with the Zimbabwe Crisis.
According to an unnamed source who spoke to NewZimabwe.com
Motlanthe has offered to lead negotiations between the two parties but he has come up a new format which will not involve principal to principal discussions up until a later stage.
He is targeting warring sections of the two parties especially the two youth wings before sitting down with the two party leaders.
Already both Chamisa and Mnangagwa have set up committees which will be discussing this at great length.
However, MDC spokesperson Jacob Mafume denied that there are such talks. Said Mafume
There is nothing like that. We have not received any communication from Zanu PF and we have not sent any to Zanu PF.
The junior minister for Information and Broadcasting Services Energy Mutodi was unwilling to speak about the report. He said
These are matters that fall under the Presidential spokesperson. Please talk to Charamba. I cannot say anything further than what I have just said.
