FULL TEXT: South African Envoys Go Back To South Africa Without Meeting The MDC Alliance Despite Requesting A Meeting With An MDC Alliance Delegation

The MDC Alliance has released the following statement which states the South African Envoys sent by Cyril Ramaphosa did not meet with them despite the envoys formally requesting to meet the party’s representatives.

The MDC blamed the ruling party for the meeting cancellation in the following statement which reads:

10 August 2020

STATEMENT ON CANCELLATION OF MEETING BY SPECIAL ENVOYS APPOINTED BY CYRIL RAMAPHOSA

The MDC Alliance was formally requested to be available for a meeting today, the 10. of August 2020, with the special envoys that were deployed by President Cyril Ramaphosa to Zimbabwe. A delegation remained on standby from 10am this morning only to be advised at the end of the day that the special envoys would be returning to South Africa without meeting the MDC Alliance delegation. in order to brief President Ramaphosa on the outcomes of their meeting with Mr Mnangagwa.

We can only assume that the failure to meet the MDC Alliance delegation was as a result of demands made by the Zanu PF delegation.

We reiterate that Zimbabwe is in a state of crisis that has been characterized by a de facto gate of emergency a crackdown on citizens, abductions. arbitrary arrests of government critics and the political persecution of journalists. The Govemment in Harare is incapable of resolving these challenges because it lacks legitimacy. We are of the firm vim that any solution to the ongoing socio-economic challenges lies in resolving the political crisis and answering the outstanding legitimacy question.

It is clear that Mr Mnanangagwa is not ready to resolve the national crisis through genuine dialogue. However, the deteriorating plight of the Zimbabwean people means that a political settlement is more urgent than before. We wiill continue to engage Mr Mnangagwa to engage in sincere dialogue untill national crisis is resolved.
