Zanu PF Politburo member Tshinga Dube while in an interview with the Daily News said the first step to mending the problems beleaguering Zimbabwe is acknoledging that there is need for dialogue and South Africa has a critical role to play in it. This came after human rights abuses in Zimbabwe headlines internationally prompting the ANC delegation to come to Zimbabwe to have “frank talks” with Zanu PF:
Said the former
It all starts with the leaders in Zanu PF agreeing that we need dialogue and that South Africa has a critical role to play. They need to find common ground on that to make the ANC’s work easier. We can blame this group or that group, but I don’t want to do that because what is important, for the sake of progress, is that they must find each other. It is not difficult for the leaders to find each other because they have been working together for quite a long time.
I don’t think it is impossible for them (Zanu PF factions) to do that for the good of the country and our people. That is what leadership is all about. If they do not agree and continue like that, then it will be difficult for anyone who wants to help, including the ANC,
The government has however insisted that there is no crisis in Zimbabwe and there is no need for mediation from South Africa. When it comes to dialogue, the President has said there will be no dialogue outside POLAD.
