Chamisa says Zanu-PF, MDC need to close ranks
MDC leader Nelson Chamisa has called on the two leading parties, ZANU-PF and his opposition MDC to close ranks and work together for the betterment of the livelihoods of Zimbabweans.
Chamisa also said corruption, greed and dishonesty in leadership was a problem across all political parties including his own MDC, and had led Zimbabwe to where it is now.
“Come let us reason together! No problem is ever too big enough or insurmountable when our hands and minds are put together for the common good.
“Where we are going now requires us to think and act together as Zimbabweans. Our dire situation is no longer about MDC or Zanu-PF but about Zimbabwe. We have a nation to build and a generation to defend.We have the power!” said Chamisa via social media.
He said the economic situation was now so bad that everyone had to think of Zimbabwe first.
Said Chamisa: “When something is part of the problem it is not the entire problem. Yes, dishonesty, corruption and greedy leadership across the political divide account for the sad and ugly circumstances we find ourselves in.”
He however dismissed President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s promise of a middle-income economy by 2030, saying the ruling party has a history of failure since the 1990s when they promised health for all by the year 2000 but failed to deliver.
“They used to tell us of ‘housing for all’ and ‘health for all’ by 2000.We are now in 2018 yet without houses and health for the majority of Zimbabweans. They have the courage to tell us another fiction about 2030.”
Chamisa’s supporters however mainly showed in responses that they are not moved by words alone as Zimbabwe remains stagnant while leaders continue talking but do not act to close ranks. — ZOOMZimbabwe
