Firebrand MDC vice-chairperson, Job Sikhala has implored Zimbabweans across the political divide to come together and put pressure on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to negotiate with opposition leader Nelson Chamisa.
Sikhala insisted that hunger is colour blind, hence every citizen has to be involved.
Addressing MDC supporters at a rally in Chitungwiza on Sunday, Sikhala, who is facing treason charges for the political banter he made about “overthrowing” Mnangagwa, said:
… We must stop Mnangagwa’s anarchy of bringing poverty to the people of Zimbabwe and this must be confronted and we will confront it.
The greatest anarchist in our country is Mnangagwa, he has brought anarchy everywhere including in people’s homes. There is an increase in domestic violence because of poverty.
Hunger does not choose on a political party basis, it does not care whether you are Zanu PF or MDC. Let’s join hands and deal with Emmerson Mnangagwa who is the elephant in the room and we must deal with that elephant.
Listen to me Zanu PF supporters, now is the time for the people of Zimbabwe to come together and confront the elephant in the room, it has to be confronted by every citizen of our country for us to deal with our problems. Hunger is colour blind.
We have to give a way forward that does not only liberate the people at this rally, but also those men and women in the army and police because they too are hungry.
The money they earn is too little, they can’t even send their children to school.
