Speaking in an interview with NewsDay, Sibanda asserted that Chamisa is negotiating for political reforms that will eliminate disputed electoral outcomes and military coups in future. He said:
Currently, SADC is engaged with the Zimbabwe situation through (former South Africa) President Thabo Mbeki. Chamisa is not negotiating for positions, but for something better than a Government of National Unity (GNU).
He (Chamisa) is negotiating for political reforms first to correct the record of 2018 elections, reforms that will never go back again, disputed elections, military coup and corruption. That is his agenda. Those who are thinking about positions must forget.
Former South African President Thabo Mbeki’s visit to Zimbabwe earlier this week raised hopes that Chamisa and President Emmerson Mnangagwa will finally meet to thrash out their differences and bring respite to the suffering masses.
However, Mnangagwa still insists that Chamisa should “join others” in POLAD, something which the latter has vowed will never happen.
