MDC president Nelson Chamisa has said that he will again not take part in the second round of talks with President Emmerson Mnangagwa set for Friday, February 22. Mnangagwa invited all losing presidential candidates in last year’s presidential polls for talks to come up with a framework for dialogue.
In an interview with Newsday on Thursday, MDC spokesperson, Jacob Mafume confirmed that his party would not participate in today’s dialogue. Said Mafume:
We responded to that process and indicated that it did not meet the requirements of a dialogue.
That process is a national monologue where he (Mnangagwa) is talking to himself and, in any event, he refused to come to where the churches were gathered. A person who fears churches and bishops and holiness creates questions in our minds.
We will only participate in a process that is a genuine dialogue, where there is a mediator, who is neutral and a process that will deal with key actors in the crisis in Zimbabwe. We will not participate in a monologue.
