MDC President Nelson Chamisa has refuted claims made by President Emmerson Mnangagwa that had suggested that he (Chamisa) will officially be recognized as the leader of the opposition saying he is not enticed by positions or entitlement but the “people’s struggle”
Mnangagwa revealed to the Bloomberg at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) currently underway in New York that he is creating an office of the opposition leader with the state obligated to finance the new office.
However, Chamisa dismissed the alleged offer saying the struggle for democracy is not for perks or entitlement.
“Don’t be misled by headlines…There’s no offer from Mnangagwa and no dialogue or contact with him.
“Our struggle is by and for YOU THE PEOPLE. Your WILL and wellbeing come first. My role in the struggle is not about perks, position, title or entitlement but to fight for you,” he said.
A couple of weeks ago the MDC National Council resolved that the 40 year old opposition leader consults on a national dialogue with the citizens on the way forward following the 30 July elections, which Chamisa still claims he won, despite the ConCourt declaring Mnangagwa as the winner.
