Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa appealed to all opposing political parties to recognize his victory in the July 30, 2018 elections. In addition, Mnangagwa called on the opposition to join him in the fight against sanctions.
The Zimbabwean President announced it at a meeting with politicians who were not satisfied with the results of the presidential elections. Emmerson Mnangagwa expressed hope that steps would be taken to foster a dialogue within the country.
“In view of the July 30 results and subsequent Constitutional Court pronouncements, I suggest that we all accept the results of our harmonised elections as a legitimate expression of the will of the Zimbabwean people, in order for us to focus on the next elections which are due in 2023,” Mnangagwa said.
It is noteworthy that the negotiation were not visited by MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa and former Vice-President and leader of the National People’s Party, Joice Mujuru.
