Mnangagwa calls for dialogue with MDC

Mnangagwa calls for dialogue with MDC
Published: 22 January 2019 (360 Views)
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has finally succumbed to the calls for national dialogue which the MDC has been calling for since the disputed 2018 election results were announced.

President Mnangagwa made the call in the early hours on Tuesday when he landed at the Harare International airport from a round trip to EuroAsian to market brand Zimbabwe.

"I invite leaders of all political parties as well as religious and civil leaders to set aside our differences and come together." Mnangagwa said."What unites us is stronger than what could ever divide us. Let's begin a national dialogue. Let's put the economy first. Let's put the people first."

Mnangagwa's call comes after hardliners like Presidential Spokes man George Charamba appeared on national television saying there will never be a dialogue between Mnangagwa and and MDC leader Nelson Chamisa.

Analysts say Mnangagwa was forced to call for dialogue after realizing that his trip to court investors was fruitless as long as there is no peace, unity and stability in the country.

Political Analyst  Fortune Mlalazi said, "As a nation we must celebrate that at least the President himself has called for National dialogue. While we must not be too expectant on the outcome we must at least appreciate that the President has seen it fit to accept the calls from the opposition that stakeholders must sit down and fix the Zimbabwean problem. President Mnangagwa might have realized that his call for investors yields nothing with peace at home hence his call."

Earlier in January, Chamisa made another plea to Mnangagwa to dialogue.

"I have met with many on our worsening situation and unbearable suffering."Sauid Chamisa. "The back-to-school burden, high prices, non-performing economy, joblessness and worthless salaries bring sorrow. On this,I call upon my brother Emmerosn Mnangagwa to urgent dialogue to solve our politics and economics or it gets worse."
