Chamisa ‘plans mock swearing-in ceremony’

Zimbabwe’s opposition leader Nelson Chamisa may take a mock presidential oath on Saturday, news agency Reuters quotes his spokesman as saying.

BBC

Nkululeko Sibanda said: “We will do everything that resembles an inauguration but everything will be within the law.”

Deputy Minister of Information Energy Mutodi said the government would not allow “anarchy”.

“Any attempt to de-legitimise government will not be tolerated and those bent on causing anarchy will be dealt with mercilessly,” Mr Mutodi wrote on his official Twitter page.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa won 50.7% of the vote, compared to 44.3% for Mr Chamisa in the 30 July election.

Mr Chamisa’s subsequent legal challenge was dismissed by Zimbabwe’s Constitutional Court.

However, he has maintained that he was cheated out of victory by the electoral commission.

The plan for a mock inauguration has drawn comparisons to one taken by Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga in January.

He took an oath as “the people’s president” before his supporters in a park in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, following a contentious election in 2017.

Mr Odinga and his political nemesis President Uhuru Kenyatta later called a truce and resolved to work together.

  1. Why waste money on an expensive childish charade instead of supplying clean water to people who voted for you in Harare who are dying of cholera?

  2. Mahumbwe ndonaaziva and ndakamatamba. Kuridza Ngoma nedemo wakagara papfumo.

  3. The title should read, “Delusions of Grandeur by the Movement of Delusional Complainers Alliance”.
    Please spare us these childish games when we need men to stand up and make positive contributions in the face of a Cholera outbreak in some of our localities. Where are the City Council voices and all those duly elected officials? May the real men in this outfit please stand up and be counted.

  4. Comment…Mdc needs a mature and stable leader like Mudzuri or Mwanzora who will give confidence to locals and the outstide world kwete mahumbwe aPastor Nelson Chamisa.

  5. isu tikumugadza chamisa imi necholera yenyu itai zvamunoda

    1. G4o remember the MDC Alliance run councils should take much of the blame on the cholera issue.

      They have a mandate of service delivery but they are so blinded by politics that they have forgotten their duties.

      I know will be tempted to argue that city councils are owed like what they always sing. Where ever there is revenue collection there is bound to be arrears but your so loved Chamisa’s city fathers choose to tell us that we are owed so much and they never bother to tell us how much they manged to collect in terms of revenue.

      If you are one of the residents who pay rates pane day rawakambosvika ku kanzuru uchida kubhadhara ukawana kuisina kana que?

    2. Cholera is not in the rural areas but in local government areas that are controlled by a certain political party.

  16. Chamisa has a mental challenge while you support him in his madness, when are you going to realize that the man is now mentally challenged. He is a psychiatric case.

  17. Cry My Beloved Country

    kablaz aka kungotsvagawo kuzvinetsesa and wasting time. I think Nero should be working towards a strategy for the 2028 elections. His childish behaviour has already ruled him out of the 2023 polls. I’ll pose the same question being posed by my fellow countrymen — zvozodii after mahumbwe amakarongera Mugovera iwayo??????

Just accept kuti kwayedza then wake up and work for you family.
