Chamisa invites Mujuru, Dabengwa for coalition ‘talks’

MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa yesterday said he was mooting a grand coalition with National People’s Party leader, Joice Mujuru, Zapu president, Dumiso Dabengwa and other smaller parties in order to dismantle President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Zanu PF’s hegemony.


Addressing a bumper crowd at an MDC Alliance rally at Pelandaba Stadium in Gwanda, Chamisa said only a united front will defeat Zanu PF.

“The people in this country need to be united. I asked Mujuru and Dabengwa and other small political parties to join me. We need a united front to beat Zanu PF,” he said.

Mujuru is currently the leader of the People’s Rainbow Coalition and together with Dabengwa this week expressed their willingness to join Chamisa’s MDC Alliance.

Chamisa said the forthcoming elections were not about personalities, but about resolving the economic and political crisis in the country.

“We need to deal with corruption, we need to deal with the dictatorship,” he said.

“Mnangagwa and Zanu PF will not be on the ballot paper. But corruption, dictatorship and lack of cash will be on the ballot paper. These ills will be represented by their ambassador ED Mnangagwa. So we need to vote out our suffering.”

Chamisa said the forthcoming elections were not about the past, but dealing with the future in order to secure a free and prosperous Zimbabwe. The MDC Alliance presidential candidate is today expected to address another rally in Beitbridge.

    That will be a very big positive development if all parties come together and challenge ZANU PF.

  2. Comment…I beg to disagree, I would suggest that all parties unite with ZanuPF, for at least 10 years. Zanu PF mitigation of the predictable opposition disorder and confusion from their last minute marriage of convenience, APPEARS ESSENTIAL.

  3. Good move! Nonetheless, tread wisely Chamisa. Numbers don’t lie but they are so easy to misrepresent. Let screen them first.

  4. Adding and resurrecting more dead weight…..if the conflicts don’t come now before election they just might come soon after election coz yoooh they are all narcissists

  5. Tman zimbabwe

    Don’t see light in the tunnel ahead. The three of you are hungry lions. Big dissitant Dabengwa will never allow any power domination by little Chamisa. Any marriage of the three will be the end of Chamisa’s dominance, wait and see, kamba arikuseka zvake….

  6. and dabengwa used simba makoni to spoil our wishes . Claiming he used simba as a brai stick to avoid Tsvangirai win . He is back again backed by reinforced coalition of power hungry losers. Wake up Chamisa, theres no better shit in politics

  7. Comment…Tman zimbabwe.i dissident ngunyoko.kwakumele unyoko akuphunze.

  8. Political pluralism is necessary though and zimbabweans know the difference between Zanu surrogates and spoilers …Soldier on with your message of hope..
