Dethroned Ntabazinduna chief Felix Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni has called for the formation of an interim transitional government (ITG) of technocrats to work on the much-needed political and economic reforms.
Ndiweni dismissed the prospect of forming a government of national unity (GNU), saying it is not capable of resuscitating Zimbabwe’s democracy. He said:
An ITG is a hybrid government that has a fixed short term and has a specific job description. In our case, its remit is to resuscitate democracy in our country.
The ITG will immediately at the beginning of its term of office, begin negotiations with the Republic of South Africa and Sadc as a whole to formulary adopt the Rand as our currency for the short to medium term.
He further suggested that once formulated, the ITG will need to start negotiations with South Africa and SADC as a whole to adopt the Rand as our currency.
Ndiweni’s remarks come as there are growing calls for dialogue between the ruling ZANU PF party and the opposition MDC to address the country’s perennial challenges.
