Mr Chamisa has an explicit mandate to engage the Regime so as to help save the people of Zimbabwe from the accelerating economic decline. He has wide parameters. I hope the War Vets and others do not overly limit ED whose heart is in the right place....but unfortunately his actions and policies are clearly this far disastrous.

We have seen this movie before. Round and round it goes same script different actors.

Brothers . Mnangagwa meeting Chamisa is not the solution to Zimbabwe's impasse . Its not fr the first t ime ever . These issues are spiritual to the country n. check my words .

The journey of a thousand kilometres begins with one step.This is the first step.We can not suddenly wake up to a stable economy one morning without our Leaders engaging in a dialogue.It has to start from somewhere.

Such an agreement has all the features an elite deal that will not address the fundamental political social and economic problems that currently afflict Zimbabwe. Chamisa is only relevant insofar as he can appease the sources of western capital and financial support, desperately needed to halt the country's precipitous slide and revive the country. Chamisa will be conveniently jettisoned once there is a modicum of normalcy and stability in the same manner as Mugabe did to Tsvangirayi in the last GNU. The solution is not to invite Chamisa to just jump on board a storm battered ship, but also to hand over the captaincy in the hope that he can steady it and bring it in to the shore safely. Better still just call for fresh elections in which people will be given the latitude to express their free will and choice regarding who will govern them

All that Chamisa should have done was to accept defeat when the Con Court handed down its judgement on the electoral challenge. He is just trying to gain political mileage.

Chamisa was defeated by a ZANU PF appointed bench, 100% ZANU PF appointed bench....if it was an impartial bench, all of us would have accepted EDs presidency. The problem is we know too much....maybe next time the learned judges will realise that a partisan judgement will only deliver partial legitimacy

@the one - you have a small brain. when these elephants are fighiting, us the grass suffer more. when they find each other, the winners are us again because hatitsikwe-tsikwe. so this is positive development, zvekuti akahwina ndiyani handiyo nyaya. Tinoda kuguta isu-kana akaruza wacho ariye anogona kuita kuti tigute bva let it be. unofunga kuti iye Mnangagwa wacho haazvizive zvaurikureva but he still is willing to talk. i wish he continues in that vein and not take advice from zvidham dham like you-small brain

Why accuse Nero? Is he the one advocating the implimentation of rushed ruinous policies? Eg the 2 % which should have been staggered was rushed in by the new government seeking to meet some 100 day deadline of their own. The preposterous view that export incentive bond notes are at par with the US dollars; the RTGS : FCA segmentation without a parameter for inter-trade between them. Watch ...government owned companies such as Cairns and Dairibord have heightened prices no less that the independent business sector and finally the Finance Minister is now in charge of Lying and Propaganda? Disappointing, disheartening, embarrassing !

Nxaaa Daily News siyanai nemanyepo, where and when have these talks started, kuda kutengesa your discredited news paper nenhema.

The moron realised that the illegitimacy way is a brick wall now he is trying the back door like a thief to acquire a sit in the government. ED during his inauguration as the president of the republic, he insisted that Chamisa have the role to play while preaching unity and Chamisa maintained illegitimacy issues with the very president he don't recognize as his president. I think his brains are corrupted with virus, he need mental specialists soon before it gets worse. ED is accepting his engagement on condition CHAMISA IS GOING TO ACCEPT ED AS HIS LEGITIMATE LEADER so I'm struggling to understand, what's change the fact that ED is illegitimate president, only because illegitimacy door is locked?? Chamisa is the one who is divided Zimbabweans, in MDC and outside MDC because for him, who ever is against him will deserve an insult. There is nothing he would solve and the economic key he claim to have is the sanction he impose on his own country

Chamboko - 6 December 2018

So it is now clear that our problem and our suffering is becoz of chamisa. how shallow and cruel can one be. mototaura neni kuti zvinake. a representative of satan indeed

the fate of a nation depends as always on the fate of two political opponents...#@zvakaoma
