THE Zimbabwe Council of Churches (ZCC) has implored Zimbabweans to engage in dialogue so that peace prevails in order to resolve the country’s economic problems.
In an interview with a local radio station, Reverend Samuel Sifelani of ZCC said:
As Zimbabweans, we are going through a very difficult time and even after the occurrences of the past few days the critical issues remain, the issues of salaries and the economy remain.
Solutions to these problems do not lie in any particular political party or a particular sector but it really lies in the people Zimbabwe.
That is why as ZCC we are calling for dialogue to say across sectors people engage in a consensus national building process where we come together, in a non-partisan manner.
Violence flared up last week after the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) called for a national stay away on Monday. The stay-away degenerated into riots and looting of shops resulting in the death of 12 people and hundreds more were injured by gunfire.
