VP Chiwenga Pleads With Church Leaders To 'Impress' POLAD Rejecters To Change Their Minds

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has pleaded with church leaders to engage political leaders who snubbed the Political Parties Actors Dialogue (POLAD) platform created by President Emmerson Mnangagwa in 2018.

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa is one of the presidential candidates in the 2018 election who refused to join POLAD arguing that it was not meant for genuine dialogue but to endorse Mnangagwa’s victory “fraudulently attained”.

Chamisa who was MDC Alliance presidential candidate in 2018, is adamant that he won the election and the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC), in connivance with the ruling ZANU PF, manipulated results in Mnangagwa’s favour.

Addressing heads of Christian denominations in Harare Thursday, Chiwenga urged churches to help influence politicians who snubbed POLAD to change their minds. Without stating names, he said:

I appeal to you as our spiritual leaders to impress upon those leaders who are not willing to join others under the Political Actors Dialogue to have a change of heart and put the interests of the nation ahead of their own political interests. They should desist from their destructive path of achieving political power through unconstitutional means.

Threats to make this country ungovernable on account of one person losing an election have been uttered publicly. In my view, you as church leaders, as the conscience of our nation, should speak loudly condemning such counterproductive utterances. Such a fatal mission only takes our country backwards and is not helpful to anyone.

He added that the “Second Republic” is not opposed to inclusive dialogue adding that POLAD signified the government’s desire to work with every stakeholder in solving the country’s crises.

The former military boss added that there are “others in the opposition who do not want to see credible elections pronounced in Zimbabwe when they lose those elections” in an apparent reference to Chamisa who threatened to refect a rigged election saying he was sure of victory.

Chiwenga appealed to church leaders to knock patriotism in the heads of “such individuals.”

DeGeneral should repent for staging a coup.He do not deserve to be Vice President of this country.In terms of politics ,the DeGeneral and his civilian leader are all rebels.ED was expelled from the party as well as Government by then the incumbent President.I wonder how he managed to be the ZANU PF LEADER AND PRESIDENT.

POLAD is a club of Presidentil Election losers who bootlick ED. Chamisa won the Presidential election of 2018 but was just cruelly cheated of his victory by ED using ZEC and the Concourt. Therefore Chamisa does not fit in that category of losers. Forcing him to join POLAD is a way of arm twisting him into submission to acknowledge that he indeed lost against ED which is not true. He never conceded defeat and the current rulers are desperate for that position whereby Chamisa concedes defeat and in the process legitimise their mandate to rule the country through his joining POLAD. They know they lost and are illegitimate rulers but want to clean their rigged mandate to rule through forcing Chamisa into submission. They are sensing that another defeat is around the corner in 2023 and want to appear like they won in 2018 so that when they rig again in 2023 everyone will believe them as legitimate winners when they are not. In any case what's the point of joining POLAD now with less than a year into another Presidential Election .What have the POLAD actors achieved since 2018 except receiving cars and bread crumbs from ED's feeding table using taxpayers money.? Nothing. The POLAD actors have no supporters whilst Chamisa has more than 2 million supporters or even more than that by now and therefore he does not fit into that club of losers without followers like Mteki,Kuphe and Madhuku. Mr Rebourer or God Bress Pumura must forget about his dream of Chamisa joining the club of losers,it won't happen until we vote again in 2023 to proclaim new leaders and probably new people to go to POLAD but Chamisa will not be one of them becoz he will win. By the way ED is there in POLAD because he lost and therefore fits to be in POLAD and he will stay there after losing 2023 if Chamisa does not disband POLAD because its serving no purpose at all.

Mr. God Bress Pumura is pleading with the CCC to join POLAD whilst castigating & threatening the CCC at the same time. That's insencre & disingenuous of him. True dialogue begins with sincerity & mutual respect. Zanu Pf treats the CCC with cruelty. ZBC is biased against Chamisa. The ZRP bans CCC rallies. Zanu Pf supporters kill & violate CCC supporters & Zanu Pf politicians talk crap about Chamisa & the CCC. ED & Chiwenga say nasty things about the CCC at their rallies. Zanu Pf is even rigging elections right now. Now tell me why should Chamisa join POLAD which is led by hostile & cruel people who have been trying to destroy him by sponsoring Mwonzora & Khupe? Why? If Chamisa & the CCC are not safe outside POLAD, will they not be killed when they join it? What has Mnangagwa's POLAD achieved so far, after all these years???

I personally think the VP and ED's gvt officials must learn to draw a line between church leaders and traditional spiritists and chiefs... True men of God are not politicians' instruments of electoral campaigns.
