Obert Gutu, the vice president of the MDC -T led by Thokozani Khupe has vehemently said that former South Africa President, Thabo Mbeki will never dissolve the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) forum particularly after seeing achievements it made so far.
The former Deputy Minister of Justice (GNU era) posted on Twitter saying:
President Thabo Mbeki appreciates the remarkable achievements made by POLAD. We outlined to him POLAD’s achievements profile & he was impressed. To expect Cde. Mbeki to advocate for the disbanding of POLAD is like wishing that one day Lucifer will conquer Heaven. It won’t happen.
His remarks come as the other MDC-A led by Nelson Chamisa is adamant that it will not join POLAD, a forum the party describes as a circus doomed to fail.
On the other hand, the ruling ZANU PF has said that there will be no talks with Chamisa outside POLAD which was initiated by President Emmerson Mnangagwa earlier this year.
