Mwonzora Calls For South Africa’s Mediation In Zimbabwean Crises

MDC-T secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora has concurred with MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa that there is a crisis in Zimbabwe and that South African mediation is needed to bring positive change in the country.

Speaking during an interview with Business Times, Mwonzora condemned the ruling ZANU PF party for blocking South Africa from playing a mediatorial role in Zimbabwe, saying South Africa has a right to interfere since it is directly affected by the crisis in its neighbour. He said:

There is no question that we have a crisis in this country. We have a crisis of the economy, we have a crisis of corruption, the social crisis—poverty and the crisis of contested legitimacy.

Every time after elections, there is a contest on legitimacy and so on. We have a crisis that needs the help of our neighbours and we think that the coming in of South Africa is a very good initiative.

It is part of the African diplomacy by a neighbour who is affected when something wrong happens in Zimbabwe.

Mwonzora added that Zimbabwe should be grateful for having a neighbour that shows concern over the debilitating corruption and poverty in the country.

Chamisa has consistently refused to accept Mnangagwa’s legitimacy since the contested 2018 presidential election and has called for electoral reforms to prevent such disputes from recurring.

  1. The problem that I have with Mwonzora is his unsatisfied hunger for power. He talks too much. Mark my words Mwonzora by end of this he will be leading a splinter. He continously jumping from this party to that party like a headless chicken. The MDC-Thokozani has openly said that there is no crisis. All those minute organisation masquerading as political parties which are in so called POLAD are in agreement with ZanuPF that there is no crisis in Zimbabwe. My point is since Mwonzora is now a member of MDC-T which is a staunch supporter of POLAD is difficult to see how sincere he is. Mwonzora like most of the people, started as a ZanuPF member, left ZanuPF and joined UANC together with Cde Edgar Tekere. He and Cde Tekere left Bishop Muzorewa’s UANC to start the ZUM project which he later dumped in favour of MDC Tsvangirai. I really don’t take him seriously .
