National Dialogue: MDC President Nelson Chamisa meets President Emmerson Mnangagwa's envoy


The youthful MDC leader in an interview with the Daily News has revealed that he met with ED’s confidant and godfather Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi.

Chamisa reportedly spoke his mind and told the Bishop what needs to be done by who for the country to move forward.

Speaking to the publication the advocate said:

"I told Bishop Mutendi that Mnangagwa must stop seeing the MDC as an enemy. The MDC is not a fly-by-night party . . . it’s a party of the infrastructure of politics in the country and must be respected in that regard. Mnangagwa is not helping anything by disfiguring the MDC. That doesn’t help at all. We are saying . . . we are open to frank and open discussions with Mnangagwa. We have said this openly, but they can’t prescribe the parameters of dialogue.

"I told Bishop Mutendi that we are willing to talk to Mnangagwa anytime. I impressed upon him that he (Mutendi) should give Mnangagwa sound advice. This country lacks a nation builder because Mnangagwa is acting like a party leader. The nation needs a father, but we have none. I also told the bishop that churches must continue to pray for the country so that we get out of the current crisis."

Dialogue calls between the 2 parties have been made by various stakeholders however the 2 men in question are yet to make efforts to meet for what Chamisa calls a “genuine dialogue”
