Chamisa Dismisses ZANU PF-CCC Talks Reports

Chamisa Dismisses ZANU PF-CCC Talks Reports

CCC leader Nelson Chamisa has denied claims that he is engaged in talks with President Emmerson Mnangagwa to form a government of national unity (GNU).

Last week President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s spokesperson George Charamba claimed that Chamisa was behind the proposal by the Zimbabwe Heads of Christian Denominations (ZHOCD) to suspend elections for seven years and pave the way for the formation of a coalition government.

But speaking to reporters on Sunday on the sidelines of the Workers Day celebrations, which were held in Dzivarasekwa in Harare, Chamisa said:

I am not engaged with Mnangagwa on any dialogue regarding a government structure. The only dialogue and pact I have called for is the pre-election pact that must be done.

I also disagreed with the proposal by the churches to have a sabbatical on elections and said we only need a sabbatical on election violence.

CCC deputy spokesperson Gift Siziba on Monday, 2 May told NewsDay that Chamisa was open to dialogue with Mnangagwa, but on electoral reforms, and not to form a GNU. Said Siziba:

We need a national dialogue with political parties on the pre-election pact and electoral reforms so that we put an end to the cycle of contested elections.

We don’t want violence in the next elections, and we don’t need the abuse of State institutions at all.

We don’t want a political dialogue to share power, we want dialogue with all political parties, and ZANU PF being our major opponent, on electoral reforms.

Chamisa has never refused to dialogue with all political parties on electoral reforms.

Political analyst Maxwell Saungweme also told NewsDay that Chamisa and Mnangagwa need to talk to each other for the sake of the nation’s progress. He said:

The socio-economic and political challenges facing the country cannot be unlocked by political science.

After every war, people engage in dialogue. Even after independence, we engaged in dialogue. Zimbabwe needs dialogue.

If President Mnangagwa and Chamisa care about Zimbabwe, they should be able to talk to each other.

I don’t find any wisdom in one saying they don’t want to talk to the other, even for the electoral reforms, there is a need for dialogue. After all, we are all Zimbabweans.

Another political analyst Sydicks Muradzikwa said without dialogue between Chamisa and Mnangagwa, the country will not move forward. Said Muradzikwa:

Chamisa is not refusing to engage in dialogue, but he is refusing the terms of reference for the dialogue.

He is simply saying that President Mnangagwa is part of the problem and cannot be part of the solution, and cannot be the convenor of the dialogue.

That is the major reason he is refusing to talk to Mnangagwa. If there is no dialogue, we are going to continue to see the same problems.

From the first day when Blabbermouth, George Charamba, said Advocate CHAMISA was in talks with His Excellency President ED MNANGAGWA for a GNU, I strait away said that he was not say the truth because Pastor CHAMISA has always rejected the Government of National Unity. Advocate NELSON CHAMISA is right. Citizens are also vying for Harmonised Elections. The dialogue CHAMISA wants must be centred on the respect of Human Rights, the rule of law, reforming ZEC and address political violence before, during and after elections. But I am surprised why His Excellency President ED MNANGAGWA did not immediately call his blabbermouth to order. Was it planned, but for what reasons ? The Old People's Home have seen that the one they wanted to form a GNU with DOUGLAS TAGARASEYI MWONZORA is a Political nothing. Citizens want Harmonised Elections on fair and level playing field results of which noone will reject.

Political parties are a curse to the people and country. We don't need political parties only need a government that is elected from well qualified individuals who want to serve the people (not the people to serve them). An honest independent electrol body can administer the process. Just a thought.

Brilliant idea but it has its shortfalls too.
It will be like a one party state and the challenges will be hard to find. Critics will find it hard to put forward their views in such a situation. Opposition parties works as a third eye in politics who gives ideas and critisizes the govt nearly everyday. Party politics makes it easier to put complaints and to remind those who have positions that they will be replaced if they perfom poorly

A non party state cannot be a one party state.
If intelligent people are elected into parliament, all issues can be debated and voted on in a responsible manner without hostility as with party politics. I also think power should be taken away from the president and given to parliament to curb abuse of power. One can still have watchdog and oversight committies in place. I really think it's doable with some serious thought.
