MDC-T deputy president Mr Obert Gutu condemned violence saying it does not pay.
Gutu said it is now time to put Zimbabweans first. He called for a broad-based home grown national dialogue. Said Gutu:
We condemn violence in all its forms, violence does not pay. It is now time to put the people first. We are also alive to the fact that we have collectively failed as a nation to disengage from electioneering for purposes of moving the country forward. We believe that we have also collectively committed a sin of commission knowingly and unknowingly by not focusing on the process of nation building, therefore, we collectively call and patriotically call for a broad-based home grown national dialogue.
