President Emmerson Mnangagwa has dashed any hopes of another Government of National Unity with the MDC Alliance. There has been speculation in the past few days that the two major political parties could find common ground and come up with a workable plan for a unity government.
While addressing delegates at the ongoing ZANU PF Annual National People’s Conference at Esigodini in Umzingwane district on Wednesday, Mnangagwa said
We had our peaceful and non-violent elections tikahwina ne more than two thirds. Zvino kana ukarota kuine GNU, muka ubike doro. Musabatikane nemhere mhere irikubva kumaloser, tichatonga five years sezvinotaurwa neConstitution and tavakuisa kumberi kuvaka nekugadzira upfumi hwenyika(Those who are championing for a GNU are dreaming, we shall rule for five years as is stated in the Consitution and at the moment we are pre-occupied with the economic development of our nation) said Mnangagwa.
