Chamisa, Mnangagwa face off

OPPOSITION MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa, who claims he has a legitimate claim to lead the country after rejecting a Constitutional Court (ConCourt) ruling that confirmed President Emmerson Mnangagwa as winner of the July 30 presidential election, says he is now rallying his supporters countrywide to unseat Mnangagwa “peacefully”.

BY BLESSED MHLANGA

The ConCourt on August 24 dismissed Chamisa’s electoral challenge, saying he had failed to prove his allegations of vote fraud, but the opposition leader says the court foiled his bid to subpoena the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission to provide proof critical to his case.

Speaking at his party’s headquarters in Harare yesterday, Chamisa maintained that he won the first election since the departure of former President Robert Mugabe last November and that he was not going to wait for the 2023 general elections to face off with Mnangagwa.

“We won, but they announced something different. Now, do we wait for 2023 while we know that we won the election? Is that possible? Now we are in the process of organising our supporters in the country so that we all have one aim, to say ‘what we voted for should be respected; the results that were announced are your own problem, but the vote of the people should be respected’,” Chamisa said.

He claimed to have a grand plan to peacefully remove Mnangagwa and said he would not consider the President’s olive branch handed to him.

“We are going to execute our plans in peace and quiet. Mnangagwa was saying I should go to Parliament. I was not elected to go to Parliament. When I came to Zimbabweans, I said to them, please, give me a chance to go to State House,” Chamisa said.

“The voters gave me the keys to State House, but the keys were stolen. We want our keys back. But for us to get these keys, we need strategic planning of the highest order so that we can do our things in peace and quiet. There is no army, no gun or weapon that can destroy anything whose time has come. So we are planning, plans that are smart and we hope that with your ideas, things will move smoothly.”

But Zanu PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said the ruling party would not lose sleep over threats to remove Mnangagwa from power because the State had sufficient laws to deal with acts of lawlessness.

“Zanu PF is not worried about that, it is lawlessness. That is why the police are there to deal with lawlessness. The law enforcement agents will deal with that,” he said.

“This country has a Constitution which says elections are held every five years and the Constitutional Court has confirmed that elections are over, and if he (Chamisa) does not want to respect the Constitution, that is lawlessness as far as I am concerned.”

    YOU MAY LAMENT ALL BAD ABOUT MR CHAMISA BUT THE HONEST TRUTH IS THAT MR MNANGAGWA IS ON THE THROWN BY NIKUVING THE ELECTION WHICH I WANT TO BELIEVE YOU AGREE WITH ME. I WANT TO BELIEVE YOU ONLY WANTED MR CHAMISA TO BE GIVEN THAT LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION POSITION SO THAT THE COUNTRY WILL BE REMOVED FROM THIS DOLDRUMS. I DO NOT THINK MR CHAMISA WANT TO HAVE PEOPLE KILLED BUT OUR SUPREME LAW AS PRESCRIBED IN THE CONSTITUTION, US ALL AS CITIZENS OF THE REPUBLIC OF ZIMBABWE WE ARE ALLOWED TO THOSE PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATIONS. UNLESS THIS MURDEROUS AND ILLEGITIMATE PRESIDENT OF OURS MR EMMERSON “CROCODILE RED HANDS COUP LEADER” MNANGAGWA FAILS TO INTERPRET WHAT IS IN THE CONSTITUTION AS ON THE CASE OF AUGUST 8, THEN CITIZENS WILL BE KILLED AND DEPRIVED OF THEIR RIGHT TO CONSTITUTIONALISM. BUT IF DOES RESPECTS THE LAW LET MR NELSON CHAMISA AND HIS SUPPORTERS DO THEIR WISHES TO DEMONSTRATE. THOUGH I WAS OF OPINION THAT MR KILLER MNANGAGWA

    1. kano penga aka kanoda kuchinja ma nerorists kutiave terrorist who really is advising this guy

    2. Iwe Wishes I think you are you are and Chamisa read from the same book. We are no longer interested in these demostrations and people seeking to find relevance. Elections are over and we got to move on. Chamisa is seeking relevance thats all. He is power hungry and his desire is just to get into state house. He if fully aware that by 2023 he will be in the dustbins of MDC and not Zimbabwe by the way. So he is trying really hard to keep afloat. You and Chamisa can go and hang. I do not think Zimbabweans are stupid to be waylaid by this power hungry hyena. Whether ED won by feya feya or theft, its now water under the bridge. Nyika first, our ambitions follow not vice versa

      1. Chamisa is power hungry andy you and your mother are hungry

        1. enough is enough how long shall we suffer in the land of Egypt and no freedom can come without a fight we need to stand up as Zimbabweans and stop this thing once and for all.

      2. Muzvinapembe PaMovhu

        @Luar Basket you are an empty basket, indeed! In your submission, it is apparent that you know that Ngwena rigged his way to State House yet you want us to keep quite and smile at the thieving, bloodthirsty, greedy and illegitimate EDiots who have captured Zimbabwe.

        It’s only a matter of time, Comrade, because Zimbabweans know what they voted for and they also know who exactly sent our economy to the gallows just before the turn into 21st century Zimbabwe. They also know who killed and maimed thousands of innocent souls in the Midlands and Matabeleland provinces during the 80s.

        It is only your knuckleheaded poor self who thinks we can budge to your evil wishes like you did during the Mugabe epoch. God is watching you!!

  15. kano penga aka kanoda kuchinja ma nerorists kutiave terrorist who really is advising this guy

  16. We all knew that this country has its own idiots but I never imagined that the most idiotic of them all would seek Zimbabwe’s presidency. Chamisa is the most primitive empty-headed idiot to ever seek political office anywhere in the world! If you believe in Chamisa & his agenda to invite, pray for & wish the worst for this country, then you are the most pitiable lunatic amongst our midst. Pliz continue urging him to dig his polictical grave. We’ll soon be saying bye bye to the political career of this lunatic Archbishop of chaos & hate speech.

    1. Aaaaaaa ukuhwara iwe, you worship the worst idiot,

  17. musacheuke cde kwatabva ndokure, takusvika cde chisa mbama chisa. Victory is certain gore rino iro rino iri cdes

  18. Aaaaaaa, zviri kuitika zveakauraisa peacefully wani, you not Chamisa will turn against them ED very soon

  19. janana wa bikaz

    When you say ari kuda kuurayisa vanhu are you telling me that pane vakangomirira kuuraya vanvu vasina mhaka?Who are these people who are always ready to kill when ever there are complains from the people.Is it a polite way of admitting that the zanu pf government is full of murderersShame!

  20. Chamisa is very very right he is not power hungry at at all zanupf is power hungry they dont want to be out of power very hungry thieves
    No cash no jobs they continue lying everyday a lot of talk nothing is hppening atall

  21. uummmmmmmm… even if it may be true that ZANU rigged the election but CHamisas idea are not prudent for peace and transquility in Zimbabwe..otherwise Chamisa becomes heartless if after lossing 6 souls in AUg and now u want us to loose our youth by live ammunition???,,,, hayi no Khamisa akume mbijana timbotora mafemo..

  22. Double standards!
    Chamisa failed to honour the party constitution in seeking procedural ascendancy for the presidential candidacy proving that legitimacy is a foreign language to him.
    Consequently, he should stop talking of his nemesis’ legitimacy. Why Preach water whilst taking wine?
    What goes around comes around; take double dosage and learn to honour the party constitution in the first place.

  23. temba wekumusha

    imbwa idzi nezuro dzaiti mugabe muoffice nhasi zvaazvimwe nxaaa

  24. Spot on Nero with the economy dying fast and reaching 2008 levels anyone who wants ED and zanu to lead this country for another 5 years must be insane and benefiting from the ranging chaos in our country .Presidents can be removed it is not lawless as tired Khaya Moyo want us to think . Mugabe was removed and we were told it was not lawlessness and that means ED can also be removed the same way bcoz it is not lawless.Next door in Mzansi presidents are just removed from work just like daka boys nothing special about being president mani

  25. @wishes, are u saying the security must just fold their hands and watch zim being turned into egypt or libya ? Am proud of our securuty forces no room for silly demonstrations othiwiz lets unite and move foward . Makanz tipei mav11 anoratidza kuti makabirwa where are they ? With the lesson learned in august dnt thnk pple wll go bc to the street . Atombonzi hake huya titonge tese woda kuyemama yema

    1. tsek hauna brain

  26. When people thronged the city of Harare last year in November to remove Mugabe the security protected them so the same can happen .Remember zanu which does not have support in HARARE pleaded with MDC supporters to come out in thousands to remove R G M AND THEY DID come out in numbers to oust stubborn Mugabe and indeed he was taken out the same must happen to ED before he drives us BACK into 2008 disaster where he is driving us to .This must be our culture of working with our security forces to remove incompetent presidents and Must be next especially with economy dwindling fast he must go it is not lawless.

  27. kkkkkkk Chamisa will just be himself and we will all watch them running like headless chickens, now they say bond has to be separated from real money. Take that and pfee it to your life needs. pfeee pfeee pfeee. more coming and continue pfee pfee. Chamisa futhi?

  28. Well done Chamisa, we will fight these murderous thieves to the bitter end, we will not be frightened by any threats while our children suffer in poverty

  29. ndo pfee yacho here iyi yekuomesa zvinhu. ngavaite zvavakavimbisa vanhu zvaakuonekwa now kut these EDiots are failures vaakuda kushandisa Chamisa to Hell vanhu ve ZANU PF. ED wenyu promised jobs, investors,TRANSPERENCY,Fighting CORRUPTION Bt to my surprise hapana chambotaurwa abt Obert Mpofu saka CCC Not PFEE

  30. If zanupf think they can use threats and army to oppress people forever then they are in for a surprise soon enough, kamufana Chamisa kanenharo dzekwa David one of these days Goliath the giant shall be brought down by one shot from the kid kkkkkk

  34. Isu tinongoti Chamisa chete chete,famba nebhora usacheuke.Nhai mnangagwa wenyu uyu anoda Chamisa apinde muParliament munomudiiko,garwe handiti ndoorakahwina?All those who are saying Chamisa is power hungry you are mad buggers,why do l say so if he was power hungry and wanted perks or money he would have accepted this post but he refused, that means he has the people at heart,l voted for Chamisa to go to the state house not Parliament.If mnangagwa has the muscle to run this economy let him do so ka,the noise for Chamisa ndeyei.Zanu know that you cannot separate politics from the economy, if you rig on elections know that the economy will reject you,this is how simple market economic forces respond to an illegitimate political environment.

  40. pakaipa wena lets just focus on what helps the country and forget about politics right now

    1. those who support pfeeeeee are like a lady anomitiswa nemunhu mumwechete achinyeberwa kuti acharoorwa. ED PROMISED TO DO GREAT THINGS WITHIN 100 DAY REALLY NOTHING HE OFFERED AND JUST BEFOERE ELECTIONS HE PROMISED THE ZIMBABWE THAT WE WANT . HATINA KUVHOTERA PRICE INCREASE AND CHOLERA PLIZ THAT’S NOT OUR NEEDS

  41. Chamisa is very correct.ED should be removed the way he did Mugabe coz he lost elections and right now muri kuti you want to focus on building the country, ipi country yacho and how do you focus nehupengo huri munyika. Zuro taiva nemaUS$ edu, umwe akamaita mapaper then moti you want to build the country. We are ready to march to state house sezvatakaita pana Mugabe, ndiani wakafa wamakanzwa.

  42. Patrick Adegboyega-Conde

    Can People stop sulking. Without the coup, If Mugabe had been given the chance to contest the last election, will Chamisa put is name on the ballot box to contest against Mugabe. No way.. Without the coup Mugabe would have won the election without opposition. What can anybody do. By then Grace Mugabe is one of the VPs. Given the state of Mugabe she becomes more or less the de-facto president with the G40 in control of the security apparatus. The coup could have worked either ways; the Mugabe’s loyalists taking control and killing the plotters. God Almighty knows best the coupist won the day thank God their was no spilling of blood.
    To reality do you yourself after putting your life on the line, will now surrender it to AN OPPORTUNIST. I guess not.
    They created the mess let the clear the mess. Give them a chance and see how they perform.

    Cde SK Moyo you are very correct, our judiciary is very functional and the law will take its course. Uyu mukomana anofarisa uyu, election period is behind us. Those who are saying Chamisa was offered a parliamentary position, you are misguided and very myopic. The proposed official recognition of the leader of the opposition applies to every opposition leader who has numbers. Even Munyanduri or Mariyacha can take that position vakaita manumbers in parliament, musanyeperane zveku…. maNerorists.

  45. that is what we were waiting for.ED. MALABA, CHIGUMBA are not bigger than zimbabwe

  46. ED pfooooootototo if they is someone banking on this lizard then he or she is insane . Right now they is no clean water for citizens , no cash anyway in the country , prices of all basic food stuff has sky rocketed , jobs zero , hospitals haves no medicines and how does Ediot respond to that Buy cars for chiefs , gives 500 000 dollars to Grace Mugabe to bury her mother . tries to give our prime land to Trump . If this is not gross incompetent what is it ? Zimbabweans we have learnt from our past keeping a president who does not deliver kills our country so please Ed must go now he must go no way we must not wait 5 years again that will be disaster which is more than tsunami to this nation
