MDC legislators said they were not going to be used by Zanu PF to fight their factional battles through the planned impeachment of President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Addressing journalists, MDC chief whip Prosper Mutseyami said President Mnangagwa and his cabinet should resign since they have failed Zimbabweans. Said Mutseyami:
With Zanu PF rapture at play, the MDC caucus is also being targeted to avoid its participation in a rumoured impeachment plan. We have nothing to do with Zanu PF internal politics; we were elected to represent the people and not to fight factional battles of those presiding over a rogue state. Not to mention that there is no better side of Zanu PF, we however, want to make the point that playing a representational role, participating in an impeachment process is not beyond the rights of legislatures and no one must be persecuted for that. There is however, no need for impeachment. The executive has failed in absolute terms and violated the obligation to obey and uphold the Constitution. It follows that Mnangagwa and his Cabinet must resign.
