The opposition MDC has given President Emmerson Mnangagwa two weeks to reach out to party president Nelson Chamisa for dialogue or face protests and civil disobedience.
Party vice-chairperson, Job Sikhala demanded that President Mnangagwa should transfer power to Chamisa.
Addressing thousands of party supporters in Chitungwiza on Sunday, Sikhala said:
Let’s make sure we radicalise the base when the base is radicalised, political pressure mounts. What does political pressure lead to?
It leads to dialogue, not dialogue to sell out the people of Zimbabwe … we need total freedom. We want to go and negotiate the transfer of power.
I am giving Emmerson Mnangagwa two weeks from now for him to call president Nelson Chamisa and say come I want to talk to you.
I am giving Emmerson Mnangagwa two weeks, to say I want to negotiate. The people are speaking here, you can see over 30 000 at this rally who are ready to confront anarchy.
Emmerson Mnangagwa, start counting from today, if you don’t respond we shall respond in equal measure.
Sikhala blamed President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his Finance Minister, Mthuli Ncube for bringing misery on the populace through their punitive tax regime. He added:
There is not a single person who has brought anarchy in our country more than Mnangagwa and his Finance minister Mthuli Ncube.
Last week, they brought a supplementary budget to Parliament in which he affected a 500% increase in toll fees, where he raised the power tariffs by 370%, where he increased prices of all government services which will, in turn, affect prices across the board. This is anarchy!
