MDC Alliance President Nelson Chamisa has laughed off claims by President Emmerson Mnangagwa last week that he had allegedly received a Covid-19 vaccine from a western embassy in Harare.
The charismatic and most loved opposition leader said Zimbabwe was being consumed by politics of hate.
“They just think that I have this incredible capacity to be mischievous. They always think I am always scheming and plotting,” Chamisa said.
“I actually plan, I don’t scheme, I actually plan, and not plot
“There is too much hate in our politics.
“There must be no hate.
“People must unite and we need a proper change of heart and mind in people with access to public offices so that we don’t exhibit cruelty, violence, harm or anything like that.
“What advances societies is not the cannibalisation of the genuine and well-meaning, but their emulation.
“Instead of appreciating better ideas, they want to destroy that better idea.
“You will not get better by destroying those better than you.”
Mnangagwa has been accused of trying to create a one party state by using state institutions to dismantle the MDC Alliance.
MDC Alliance deputy president Tendai Biti and six other legislators became the latest victim of recalls after speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda allowed the People’s Democratic Party to withdraw the MPs under controversial circumstances.
