‘Banning MDC Events Will Make The Party More Radical’ – Chamisa

MDC leader Nelson Chamisa’s spokesperson, Nkululeko Sibanda, said that the ruling ZANU PF party is copying the repressive tendencies of the Rhodesian regime in the late 1950s and early 1960s which led to the radicalisation of its opponents.

Speaking to the Daily News on Monday, Sibanda urged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to “swallow his bride” and negotiate with the MDC. He said:

They must know that Edgar Whitehead’s banning of the National Democratic Party in 1961 led to a more radical Zapu and, later Zanu being formed.

Instead of beating, abducting, torturing and arresting MDC leaders, we implore Zanu PF to put the people of Zimbabwe ahead of its power obsession.

The MDC has been clear that … Mnangagwa must swallow his pride and embark on negotiations to extricate Zimbabwe from its current abyss.

The MDC has been incensed by the police brutality against in supporters last week in central Harare.

The police have banned countless MDC rallies this year using the draconian Public Order and Security Act (POSA) and its successor, the Maintenance of Law and Order Act (MOPA).

  1. It’s too late machinja. Zvese izvi hazvishande. Pindai muroad by Ginya. Zanu yakutoda ginya kuti zviite otherwise hapana change inobuda nembavha idzi.

  2. Kkkkkk – I find it really crazy that both Adv Chamisa’s spokesperson and the Daily News forget that it is the MDC -A’s conditions for dialogue that are simply not reasonable! One can’t expect ED to just step down to allow for dialogue, because the MDC – A is challenging his legitimacy – that’s nonsensical and very childish. If the MDC – A were convinced the 2018 general elections were rigged, they should not have gone to Court, but sought a political settlement, just like the late wise Tsvangirayi did in 2008! If the MDC – A really cares about the suffering Zimbabweans, why can’t the party tell ED that they want to dialogue unconditionally!? MDC – A is really playing politics of “showing off” political immaturity. If they want to go the armed rebellion route, so be it – may be they can win it, but for me, it’s just a wet dream! Zanu Pf is pathetic, but the MDC – A are actually making Zanu Pf look sensible!
