MDC president Nelson Chamisa is seeking to meet South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa when he visits the country next month.
Ramaphosa is scheduled to jet into the country on March 12 for a State visit.
A top MDC official who spoke to Newsday on condition of anonymity had this to say:
He is working out a plan to approach Ramaphosa for a meeting.
It’s highly unlikely because Ramaphosa is coming here to meet (President Emmerson) Mnangagwa in his capacity as leader of Zimbabwe and specifically for business.
The other thing is Ramaphosa has already taken a position and it’s almost a waste of time to think he will shift.
Meanwhile, Chamisa’s spokesperson Nkululeko Sibanda said:
President Chamisa has the utmost respect for His Excellency, The Right Honourable President Ramaphosa.
He has communicated with regional leaders at every turn and will continue to take every opportunity to engage with the region and especially the South African President His Excellency Ramaphosa.
