Chamisa: Mbeki, Ramaphosa, SADC Appreciates That Zimbabwe Has A Political Problem

MDC leader Nelson Chamisa said dialogue to resolve Zimbabwe’s crises should be between his party, ZANU PF, churches, labour, and civic society.

Speaking during an interview with NewsDay on Thursday, Chamisa dismissed the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) as a sideshow meant to settle some cheap political scores. He said:

The nature of the dialogue that is credible is dialogue that involves Zanu PF and the MDC and, of course, labour going forward to be consulted.

Churches, civic society also needs to play a role and needs to be done through credible facilitation and adjudication with Zimbabwe being the main player for a wholly Zimbabwean solution to Zimbabwean challenges.

Chamisa criticised agreements made in the past by the country’s political players, that is, the 1979 Lancaster House Agreement, the 1987 Unity Accord and the 2008 Global Political Agreement as elitist since they involved only key (political) players.

He asserted that former South African President Thabo Mbeki, who was in the country earlier this week, and President Cyril Ramaphosa, as well as SADC, appreciates that the Zimbabwean problem is a political problem.

  1. Hmmmmm, pause. Hmmmmmm. I am not in Zim, I can only read between the lines and make assumptions.

    Mr Chamisa is probably correct in stating the problems are political. 100% correct though? Debatable.

    No matter what I read, when I weigh it, consider the value of that weight, I still have an inclination to surmise that there is a small kettle of tribalism left simmering on the back burner.
