MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has said he will not be drawn into the ongoing discussion on the dispute about who owns Harvest House between his main opposition party and the Thokozani Khupe-led MDC-T because his focus is on occupying the State House.
In an interview with the Zim Morning Post, Chamisa said he has no time to discuss issues that are before the courts with regards to the ownership of the main opposition headquarters, the Morgan Tsvangirai House, which was invaded by the Khupe-led splinter group last week with the assistance of security forces.
“My focus is not on the Harvest House, that one belongs to the people. My dispute is at the State House. We must be talking about who should be occupying the State House.
“We are in a crisis as a nation and the central issue is on the occupants of the State House. Once that is resolved then Zimbabweans will be free,” Chamisa said.
Chamisa said the people are in a state of shock at how the state is involved in MDC issues.
“Everyone is in state of shock. Look at the cost of keeping riot police at Harvest House. How much fuel is lost by policing the innocent citizens. That is wrong politics and wrong politics is expensive.
“We can do better than that and invest all those resources in changing the people’s lvelihoods.
“We have more police vans in the CBD than delivery vans. Government is in mortal combat with its own people and a time is coming when they will get tired.”
On being asked on the way forward Chamisa said: “There has to be a mechanism where citizens will demand a resolution.”
“The circumstances are enough signal for everyone to demand transformation. This government’s prioriities are wrong and that is the only signal for everyone to demand that we are alligned in a directiion facing forward,” he said.
