MDC-T president Douglas Mwonzora is pushing for the formation of a Government of National Unity with ZANU PF.
Addressing MDC-T supporters in Marondera at the weekend, Mwonzora said he is ready to follow the late former MDC president Morgan Tsvangirai’s footsteps and become Zimbabwe’s Prime Minister.
The MDC-T leadership was in Marondera to consult party structures on whether they should go ahead and engage President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Said Mwonzora:
This is one of the first meetings we are doing, to spread our message of dialogue; our message is to make people ready for elections.
But basically, it was consultations and advising people of the decision made by the national council for us to intensify the issue of dialogue.
The results of dialogues are known. We may have a GNU or whatever arrangement, and that is what I was talking about.
We want to follow in the footsteps of Morgan Tsvangirai. He did dialogue and it was in the best interests of the people of Zimbabwe. And we want to follow suit.
It is up to the people of Zimbabwe, I am ready to serve what the people of Zimbabwe will ask me to do.
