Despite Presidential Spokesman George Charamba’s claims published in the Herald Monday morning, MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has said his party will not be included in a government of national unity.
Advocate Chamisa spelt this out in an interview with Zimbabwe Eye. He was speaking in response to a question on the possibility of a government of national compromise, should that be necessary at some point in the future.
He said, “it’s good to talk, it’s good to dialogue, but I don’t know what exclusivity you are taking about.
“We are not going to be included, we are going to be including.
“There is a difference between being included and including. When you are included, it means that you are not the winner. When you are including, it means that you are the winner.
“We are willing to be inclusive by including, but we are not willing to be inclusive by being included. We are the winners, we are going to speak to any Zimbabwean who is progressive.
“The future is non partisan, as I indicated I believe we must change Zimbabwe for the better, whether ZANU, MDC, the future cannot be about parties. The future is about a victory for the people of Zimbabwe. I think about Zimbabwe first. I think about Zimbabwe than any other.”
