Various churches under the Churches and Civic Society Forum (CSCJF) banner have called upon president Mnangagwa and opposition leader Nelson Chamisa to be considerate of the general populace suffering from their decisions. This comes after tensions have been growing between the opposition party and government over the political and economic crises.
Speaking to the media in Harare, Reverend Angliston Sibanda condemned the actions of both president Mnangagwa and Nelson Chamisa. He said that the citizenry suffers from the standoff between political elites. Sibanda said:
We are warning both parties to cease fire and consider the plight of the ordinary people who are suffering, not only as a result of government austerity policy but also as a result of foreign intervention and manipulation of systems in order to frustrate the citizens and cause citizens to revolt by the residue of people used to do gatekeeping of systems in the former administration.
