The leader of the opposition MDC, Nelson Chamisa has said that his party’s views on dialogue have not changed.
He assured supporters on Twitter saying that the MDC will never join the political parties dialogue (POLAD) initiated by President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Chamisa tweeted:
Zimbabwe is in a deep crisis. Only true & holistic reform will bring about real change. Dialogue must be genuine. Will take no part in POLAD.Our views on the much-desired dialogue remain unchanged. We seek true change for the people of Zimbabwe. We will never betray your trust!
His remarks come when the arrival in the country of former South Africa president, Thabo Mbeki was viewed as the beginning of the dialogue process amongst political parties and other stakeholders in the country.
Mbeki revives memories of the Government of National Unity which came to being a decade ago after he mediated between the ZANU PF and two MDC formations.
Chamisa spoke recently saying that the impasse existing between the ruling ZANU PF and his party was no longer sustainable adding that dialogue was essential for the transformation of the country.
The standoff dates back to 2018 when the MDC accused ZANU PF of rigging elections.
