WATCH: Biti says people will take to the streets soon to push for dialogue with ED
MDC deputy chairman Tendai Biti has warned there will soon be what he calls Armageddon, saying people will take to the streets soon to push for dialogue.
“I expect serious closure of companies again who cannot access foreign currency to close down: I expect the economy to sink into a proper recession; I expect further political instability — people will go onto the streets unless there is genuine dialogue. It will be Armageddon.”
The MDC led by Nelson Chamisa snubbed the dialogue called by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
At one time in February while addressing a rally in Gweru, Nelson Chamisa proposed a new 4-year power sharing government which would see him run the country for two years and Zanu PF rival Emmerson Mnangagwa the other two.
Chamisa demanded dialogue with Mnangagwa which he said must culminate in the formation of a transitional authority.
The MDC leader threatened nationwide protests if the Zanu PF leader refuses to talk.
Previous protests in January against fuel price hike left 17 people died and dozens more injured. Nearly 400 were jailed, some for up to six years, after the protests turned into a looting and violence orgy.
