Nelson Chamisa, leader of the opposition MDC has revealed that he is keen to have a direct encounter with president Mnangagwa. He said the meeting will be to discuss political, economic and social issues affecting the country.
The MDC earlier demanded the establishment of a Transitional Authority to run Government and opening up debate on President Mnangagwa’s legitimacy.
Posting on Twitter via his official account, Chamisa said:
Where we are going now requires us to think and act like Zimbabweans. Our dire situation is no longer about MDC or Zanu-PF but about Zimbabwe. We have a nation to build and a generation to defend. We have power.
Commenting on that message, Chamisa emphasised the need to end economic problems for the current generations and the unborn.
Jacob Mafume, MDC-Alliance spokesperson reiterated Chamisa’s message and said:
In the current context we have proffered that as a solution, we need a one on one meeting underpinned by the five points plan. As a party, the president has been given the full mandate to engage in any process that will bring about an end to the suffering of the people of Zimbabwe and he is providing a framework to that.
Dr Obert Mpofu, Zanu-PF Secretary for Administration said that President Mnangagwa was ready for genuine and unconditional dialogue with political parties or anyone and build Zimbabwe.
