Chamisa gets grassroots support for snubbing ED’s offer

MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa’s supporters across the country are backing his stance to reject President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s bid to placate him by officially recognising him as the ‘Leader of the Opposition in Parliament.’

“The people are very clear in all the provinces we have held provincial council meetings so far. They are saying they support Chamisa in rejecting Mnangagwa’s offer for him to be drafted in his government. The grassroots masses are saying Mnangagwa is illegitimate,” said MDC Alliance organising secretary, Amos Chibaya.

“He was not voted by majority of the people of Zimbabwe. Accordingly, he cannot try to window-dress his legitimacy crisis by an illegal offer to the people’s favourite, our party leader Nelson Chamisa.”

He said the party held provincial council meetings across the country in the past week and the grassroots supporters back Chamisa’s stance.

“From what is coming out in the provincial council meetings, the people are still solidly behind our leader, Chamisa, despite the setback of losing the elections whose results we still dispute. The people are saying our victory was stolen, but God is in it and so Chamisa will eventually rule this country. They are still solidly behind him,” he said.

Chamisa, who says he was the legitimate winner of the elections and accuses the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission of voter fraud despite losing a Constitutional Court petition challenging the results of the vote, has called for political dialogue to resolve the issue of legitimacy.

In a memo to party structures last week, Chamisa said the dialogue must be premised on several conditions that “shall be anchored on a five-point plan (that) includes return to legitimacy and democracy, the respecting of the win and will of the people, respecting the true outcome of this election.”

“The reforms must include electoral, political, constitutional and legal reforms that allow for the holding of truly free, fair and credible elections in Zimbabwe.”

  1. The monotony of this irreversible electoral narrative over two months down the line has long been overtaken by time.
    Its now time to get down to business and live to fight for another day at the expense of fighting a losing battle.

    1. Hanzi zanu pf is in power, tongai tioone. Fix the cash crisis, create jobs & reverse the 90% unemployment u created.

  2. After the latest show of cluelessness & stupid decisions by both Mangudya & Mthuli Mcube l’m now even more solidly behind Chamisa than l was before, we can’t continue to suffer at the hands of election thieves when we voted for better lives

  3. So you think Chamisa will be able to solve Zimbabwean problems as soon as he is in power. Maybe with $15 billion promised by Trump. His party is is financial crisis, not able to pay its workers, no money for his legal bills, election campaign etc

    1. A Party does not pay to fix a financial crisis only a legally elected Government can so can Zanu PF?? they claim they are legally elected in free and fair elections so lets see them fix the problem no good blaming other political parties for the mess they are in power

  4. Yes Chamisa can fix the economy & undeniable evidence exists, love him or hate him but it took Biti only a few weeks to straighten out the economy back in the GNU without all the endless talk, excuses & experiments we hear from these Zanupf ministers

    1. the so-called Biti are the very people who are witching our economy so as to gain support from the people….i think people should open up their eyes and see clearly..

    2. How did Biti straighten up the economy in few weeks?

      1. Manginde hauna kumwa doro ukaita seuchafa 2009 paka uyiswa USDOLLAR na BITI Iweeeeee magarine wa uchama ziva kkkkkkkk ikozvino doro chairo raku shaika Economy ino roiwa naani zvinga shamisa kunzwa kuti Economy yemu Zimbabawe yakuroiwa nana BITI kkkkkkk

    My dear countrymen lets move on live in a Linear mode not circular mode. Lets put this politics nonsense behind us and concentrate on the economy.
