Opposition MDC’s blueprint dubbed “Reload” which is set to be finalised today when the party’s national council meet proposes a plan to immediately set up a transitional authority to quickly address the country’s worsening socio-economic crisis.
The national council will also discuss and adopt the Reload blueprint. This is the document that seeks to guide us on what steps to follow in pursuit of legitimacy.
The document deals with the issue of the national transitional authority that we are seeking. It also deals with issues of desired reforms that we are seeking, among other many issues. It will be presented, debated and hopefully adopted because it is the council’s mandate to approve it.
Meanwhile, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has initiated a national political dialogue (POLAD) in which most of the 2018 losing presidential candidates are participants. He has said repeatedly that Chamisa was invited to be part of it, but, the legitimacy issue was not up for discussion since the ZANU-PF won the elections.
This created a standoff between the MDC and Zanu-PF as the MDC is still adamant that it won the elections. It also claims that the country’s problems emerge from the unresolved legitimacy issue.
MDC spokesperson, Jacob Mafume said that their blueprint would pave the way for democratic practices that will deal with the current challenges.
