Zimbabwe’s political stalemate between the ruling ZANU PF and its opposition, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has stifled the advancement of healthy democratic processes in the country.
In December, former South African President Thabo Mbeki was in Zimbabwe at Mnangagwa’s invitation. Mbeki met the ZANU PF’s Emmerson Mnangagwa, and MDC’s Nelson Chamisa separately.
Subsequent to the meetings, President Mnangagwa met with the leaders of opposition parties but the MDC was not part of the meeting.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe is dealing with a deepening economic crisis, which is now compounded by the worst drought ever in the region.
Chamisa says he is saddened by the failure of the two not able to meet since the election.
“We lack everything in leadership, but have everything in terms of resources”
More so, Chamisa denies ever calling for sanctions saying its ZANU PF propaganda.
