A Disappointingly Unstructured Discussion: Daniel Shumba Gives Feedback On Mnangagwa Meeting

Daniel Shumba, one of the presidential candidates invited to the State House meeting by President Mnangagwa said the meeting meant to discuss a framework for dialogue and interaction was a disappointingly unstructured discussion.

Shumba who is the leader of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) said the meeting was made of Mnangagwa’s cheerleaders. He said only him, Nkosana Moyo and Noah Manyika raised relevant issues. Speaking on Twitter, Shumba said he has no confidence in the process. Said Shumba:

A disappointingly unstructured discussion. No agenda nor outline of the meeting. Moderator was out of his depth. Never seen so many cheerleaders. N. Moyo, N. Manyika, and myself spoke to the issues well. I have no confidence in the process.

A porous process without an underwriter or milestones can not form the basis of a serious National Dialogue. I witnessed amazing and preposterous proposals from some seemingly compromised principals. Am curious to see the draft framework agreement.

I put across very pointed issues of constitutionalism and the rule of law and was candid regarding the repeal of unconstitutional statutes in particular the Reconstruction Act. Rape, imprisonment, and the various violations of human rights were some of the issues I raised.
