According to reports by some media the ruling party is allegedly pushing to have an opposition figure, Mr Tendai Biti, in the government. According to their sources, it has become necessary because of his ties to the West, notably with the United States.
Yesterday, VP Mohadi dismissed these reports in an interview with the Chronicle. He noted that Zanu-PF was not interested in any coalition talks with the opposition as the ruling party had total control of the Parliament. According to Mohadi, they haven`t heard anything of that sort from those who would want a national unity. He added that they were ready for dialogue if someone wanted to discuss this issue.
VP Mohadi concluded that the ruling party wanted unity to get people of Zimbabwe to work and progress together and speak with one voice. Mohadi stressed that the oppositional party should not stand aside but participate in the country’s life.
The Vice President said the MDC Alliance must recognize ED Mnangagwa as the country’s President. He spoke about a recent situation in parliament, when the opposition members did not want to recognize the president.
According to Mohadi, Mnangagwa is the president of every Zimbabwean citizen, so even enemies should recognize the fact.
“We want them to recognize that he is the President of Zimbabwe. They can treat him differently as the leader of Zanu-PF but not when it comes to the country and we will not allow that,” – Mohadi said.
