MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa on Thursday morning revealed his party knows President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s soft spots as they will use those weaknesses to formulate a dialogue.
The young politician, who has been making threats to demonstrate against the Mnangagwa government in the wake of economic decay said he has done his homework and will force the President to engage with him.
“Mr Mnangagwa said he is soft as wool and that is what we will use against him to make him engage with us. We want to dialogue with him as civil people, not for political gain,” he said.
Chamisa said contrary to public opinion that Mnangagwa is a tough leader, he is actually an easy man surrounded by politicians who do not mean what they say.
He alleged that Mnangagwa is willing to dialogue but due to his close allies, he looks tough.
“Politicians have a tendency of saying words that they don’t even mean and we are not that type of politicians but we want to bring those type of politicians to the negotiating table so they understand,” Chamisa said.
He noted that economic recovery and stability will also benefit Mnangagwa and his government.
“It’s in the best interest of Mr Mnangagwa that the country is stable. What does he want to leave as a legacy for the people and the coming generation? Does he want to be remembered as someone who dragged the country into a dungeon through being stubborn?
“That why we are asking for the breeze of wisdom to blow across his face and visit his mind,” Chamisa said.
There has been a tug of war between Chamisa and Mnangagwa as neither of the two politicians is willing to meet the other and formulate a meaningful dialogue.
