The outspoken leader of the Zimbabwe Divine Destiny church, Ancelimo Magaya has accused President Emmerson Mnangagwa of lacking genuine interest to dialogue with other stakeholders including the opposition MDC led by Nelson Chamisa.
Speaking to the Daily News, Magaya also accused Mnangagwa of dividing the church by meeting with the church leaders who always nod to everything he says even at the expense of the nation. Magaya said:
“The truth of the matter is that Mnangagwa is not sincere on the issue of dialogue. His biggest challenge is that he does not know what it takes to end this crisis. He has to be sincere because he is at the centre of our problems.
“Polad is a defective process because it’s a political dialogue including only political parties, unfortunately without the biggest opposition party. Chamisa said he cannot go to dialogue without an independent convener.”
His remarks come after some church leaders have called upon Chamisa to “unconditionally” join POLAD which President Mnangagwa set as a dialogue platform.
He also speaks after Mnangagwa has revealed that he would not entertain any other dialogue outside POLAD where he is currently meeting with losing presidential candidates in the 2018 elections.
Analysts believe that dialogue between Mnangagwa and Chamisa has the potential to solve the country’s socio-economic and political crises.
