Opposition MDC party leader Nelson Chamisa has condemned President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s decision to invite Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni to officially open the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF).
The official opening of the Fair is set for Friday this week.
Speaking to the media at the Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House in Harare on Wednesday, Chamisa said:
The choice of friends defines the man’s character and we are worried that Mr Mnangagwa invited Mr Museveni at a time when he is terrorising his own opposition.
Bobi Wine, my dear friend, is being terrorised. I’m told that he has been arrested. He has been arrested several times. That kind of behaviour is not acceptable on the African continent.
We don’t take it lightly whenever dictators come in cahoots or in unison. We have an obligation to fight them.
We don’t take it lightly Mr Museveni coming to our country to just come and grace the trade fair with yet another trade of dictatorship, with yet another trade union of people who oppress their own citizens, an alternative voice of on the continent of Africa.
