State owned media reports that 6 Western nationals have been working with local non-governmental organisations led by Crisis Coalition in Zimbabwe (CCiZ) to force President Mnangagwa into a unity Government with opposition political parties or to set up a transitional authority.
The six foreigners allegedly convened a week-long workshop at a private lodge in Harare earlier this month where they came up with strategies to incite Zimbabweans to revolt against President Mnangagwa and the Zanu-PF Government. The workshop was reportedly coordinated by CCiZ chairperson Mr Rashid Mahiya and a committee member, Mr Pride Mukono, from December 3 to 7 under the theme: “The Crisis of Legitimacy in Zimbabwe.” When contacted for a comment, CCiZ spokesman Mr Tabani Moyo denied that there was such a meeting. State media quotes a source who attended the alleged meeting saying:
The six regime change strategists from the United States, Germany, Spain and Switzerland facilitated the workshop at which the NGOs were promised more funding “if they show maturity in organising their programmes as one entity. The agenda of the meeting was to force the Zanu-PF Government into a GNU or a so-called Transitional Authority and they agreed that the only way to achieve that was through rallies, demonstrations and media manipulation. Their belief is that these activities will result in the generality of Zimbabweans revolting against President Mnangagwa and the Zanu-PF Government,
