Chamisa Says He Will ‘Wait’ For Mnangagwa

MDC leader Nelson Chamisa on Tuesday told journalists that there is nothing he can do except wait for President Emmerson Mnangagwa to come to the negotiating table.

Chamisa added that he had weighed other options available to him and concluded that they came with dire consequences. He said:

I have tried to help but I have hit a brick wall, all I have to do is be patient. I could have taken the hard and tougher route in dealing with this matter, but I know the consequences that come with being hard, so I will wait.

Chamisa has consistently rejected Mnangagwa’s victory in the 2018 elections, insisting that they were rigged.

While both Mnangagwa and Chamisa say they are willing to talk to each other, they differ on the nature of the dialogue.

Mnangagwa has told Chamisa to join fringe opposition parties under the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) forum but Chamisa is pushing for dialogue mediated by former South African President Thabo Mbeki.

Chamisa claimed that Mnangagwa is no longer answering Mbeki’s calls. Mbeki was expected to return to Zimbabwe in December to continue his facilitation role but has not set his foot in Harare since last year.

  1. Chamisa is a bundle of perjoristic contradictions. He parades under the acronym DEMOCRATIC CHANGE but is refusing to join democratic forces represented by all the other political parties that have joined Polad. How democratic is that stance nhai Chamisa.? Why are you dictating the methodology for dialogue? Who are you imbwa iwe.? Do you have any mandate to dictate terms for this nation called Zimbabwe? That mandate is with Baba Mnangagwa coz he is the legitimate President of Zimbabwe. Chamisa you are not the President and will never be. If you don’t want to join Polad we don’t care. We will continue to tackle the several crises we have till we get there. It doesn’t matter when we will get there. God knows. He is our Shepherd and we shall not want. He leads us into still waters and hearkens our cries in this Wilderness. We know you are the Pharaoh of our time. We will adhere to God’s Statutes till we get deliverance. God will make a way for us. He is so faithful and merciful. Honestly speaking Chamisa we are NOT AMUSED by your belligerence. NEVER. You should in fact go to hell
