Vice president and second secretary of ZANU PF Constantino Chiwenga yesterday said that the Chamisa-led MDC rejected Mnangagwa’s offer for dialogue after the July 30 poll. By rejecting the presidential election results, MDC closed the door for dialogue with President Mnangagwa, said Chiwenga.
He went on to say that since MDC have chosen to disrespect Mnangagwa, ZANU will continue to respond in kind.
On November 22, MDC MPs were violently ejected from Parliament after they refused to rise when Mnangagwa entered the August House for the presentation of the 2019 budget by Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube.
Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi has since warned the MDC MPs that cabinet ministers will not respond to their questions in Parliament as long as they refuse to accept Mnangagwa as the legitimate President of the country.
While addressing ZANU PF delegates at the Annual People’s National Conference in Esigodini, Umzingwane District, Matabeleland South Province on Friday, Chiwenga said
Cde President, you personally stretched out your hand to the opposition after Zanu-pf’s July 30 landslide victory.
But the opposition spurned that hand. You have since withdrawn the well-stretched hand.
All of us follow, principally those of us in Parliament are very happy that our Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs (Ziyambi Ziyambi), acting in his capacity as leader of the House (in Parliament), sent a clear signal of paying back the opposition in the hard coin they have tossed us. They have chosen to disrespect our leader who is the Head of State of our nation (President Mnangagwa).
We have no reason to handle them with the respect they have voluntarily rejected.
