Chances Of ED, Chamisa Dialogue Enhanced As MDC Drops Some Demands

Chances for dialogue between President Emmerson Mnangagwa and opposition MDC leader, advocate Nelson Chamisa have been increased following the move by the MDC to drop some of its demands.

The MDC dropped the demand for a foreign mediator over the weekend saying that what was important was having a neutral convenor, local or international.

The development was received well by ZANU PF which has been insisting that no foreigner will be engaged for the purposes of dialogue.

Speaking to the Daily News in an exclusive interview, ZANU PF secretary for administration, Obert Mpofu said:

If the MDC genuinely wants dialogue they should engage us locally and not play tough when the issues they are talking about affect Zimbabweans.

However, it is noteworthy that the MDC has now seen the light on this.

Various stakeholders including spiritual leaders, human rights activists and the international community have been calling upon the MDC and ZANU PF to solve their impasse which they say was worsening the socioeconomic and political crises in the country.

This comes when the country’s economy has been deteriorating rapidly over the past 24 months thereby causing severe pain to the general populace.

  1. No time for dialogue. Time for change. Get your big boy pants on and start some proper resistance. Blah blah ain’t gonna change anything, the country was taken by the gun.

    1. The MDC A is being realistic. Talking of the gun is a pipe dream and you know very well that you won’t hold any such weapon to fight Zanu Pf. For me, I thought the MDC would show some serious statesmanship by having their leader calling ED directly and see what happens. The MDC’s hard ball approach only benefits their top leadership and the ruling elite!
