Churches back ED on Chamisa

Churches back ED on Chamisa
Published: 24 September 2018 (425 Views)
President Emmerson Mnangagwa's plans to officially recognise MDC Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa, has seen civic organisations and churches throwing their weight behind his gesture by urging the opposition leader to play along for the realisation of every Zimbabwean's common aspiration. President Mnangagwa who is attending United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Summit in New York, USA, told BloombergTV that he is considering extending financial and material resources to Chamisa for the sake of productivity and continuity.

On the other hand Chamisa has been harping on not accepting President Mnangagwa's victory in the 31 July 2018 harmonised elections threatening to make Zimbabwe ungovernable. National Movement for Catholic Students, #This Constitution Alliance, Shalom Trust, Zimbabwe Unemployed People's Association and Bulawayo Youths Arise are among the organisations that jointly condemned the lack of political will towards economic revival. In a thin veiled attack on Chamisa the groupings posited that "cheap politicking and grant standing runs very much contrary to our common aspirations. It is clear that politicians are never defined as the most important stakeholder group, and they should never be allowed to hold us to ransom."

The grouping added that Chamisa's prolonged cat fights with ZANU PF are suffocating the masses and warned that "we cannot suffer because of selfish aspirations. If the status quo persists, selfish politicians run the risk of losing relevance in the new Zimbabwe."

The development comes at a time MDC Alliance leaders are said to be at sixes and sevens on whether their boss should accept President Mnangagwa's proposal. Some are arguing that acceptance would only betray their mantra that President Mnangagwa had lost the elections. However, Zimbabweans have had enough of the blame game and would want the country to move forward from individual politics.
