State-owned daily publication, the Chronicle, has urged MDC leader Nelson Chamisa to show maturity and respect President Emmerson Mnangagwa as legitimate.
It further contends that Chamisa is free to join the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) platform and accept President Mnangagwa’s gesture when he congratulated the party for attaining 20 years of existence last month. In an editorial article this Friday, the Chronicle editor wrote:
MDC-A leader Mr Nelson Chamisa is free to join other opposition party presidents on that platform and we are sure he would be welcomed with open arms were he to honour the invitation.

In the same spirit that President Mnangagwa congratulated the MDC-A on its anniversary, the party should reciprocate the gesture by accepting that he is the legitimately elected leader of Zimbabwe.
Chamisa rejected the 2018 presidential election results soon after they were announced by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC).
He then launched a Constitutional Court challenge of the results, which he also lost and rejected.
