There are press reports that the South African Ambassador to Zimbabwe. Mbete said, that Mnangagwa must have an External Credible Dialogue Facilitator. Elsewhere, Fikile Mbalula, a senior member of ANC, is said to have highlighted the reasons why many Zimbabweans are in South Africa. The report says that Mbalula has mentioned tribalism by ZanuPF; deny real democracy and freedom to connect with the people of Zimbabwe; and violence against the opposition. Mbalula also drew attention to the fact that the Junta regime was aligned with the private sector in the country's economic development, adopting a Bambazonke method by its busy government officials. He also spoke about human rights offenses and because the law was not being controlled.
Shortly after the protests in January, Zapu called for an all-inclusive dialogue which would lead to the establishment of a Transitional Governing Authority. Zapu published his statement from his leadership after extensive consultation with various Civic Associations across the country. As always, this was completely ignored by ZanuPF, and Mnangagwa's political parties, signed by hand, who approved his heavily contested election victory and was given only by a High Court Judge.
Some of the parties who had attended the meeting initially choked out, talking about different trends that they have nothing to do with the seriousness of the current socio-economic situation. For everyone who has been following events in the country: the engineered and intended ZanuPF dialogues will only lead to the continuation of Zanism under excuse. ZanuPF has had the opportunity to develop this country for 4 decades but the opposite of development – that is, destructive – has happened systematically. Imagining development is the result of dialogues with the friendly political groups but hallucinations.
Before the observation of a dialogue by the South African Ambassador, Zanu PF had literally insulted the Zimbabwe people's intelligence by claiming they were abolishing the POSA fascist when they had just used synonyms of existing POSAin words in his new bill. 39; . They were convinced that the world would believe they were lying transparently.
And just before the dialogue, ZanuPF youths, chanting their party slogans, attacked Ndiweni, Ndebele's Traditional Chief, making all sorts of accusations. His offense was to say something against ZanPPF. The Herald, their piece of mouth, was faster going on with the main, claiming he managed to control the attack.
The South African diplomat told them the most wise truth. Actually does not break real friendship. Zimbabweans have been praying for truth to the dawn, especially to SADC and South Africa in particular. There is a blindness support under the unity or the fight compromise; full relief has been condemned; has condemned thousands of Zimbabwean to this very painful situation. Lindiwe Zulu tried the national unity of the Zimbabwean Government, but the leadership led by Jacob Zuma gave her a warning to her foolish side with Robert Mugabe who had just rejected what SADC had; to recommend. Mugabe had even insulted Lindiwe for her maternity. All that was ignored by the South African Government and the ANC. We certainly hope that the Ambassador and Fikile Mbalula will not face the same anger of their leadership.
As Zapu we have experienced combat pains and defeat colonialism only to face the worst horrors of our own countrymen. We have also watched and listened painfully to history being deliberately turned to suit luxury alliances. Our people in the region expect the former freedom movements to give them the real freedom they had to sacrifice for it, and to guarantee them for generations to come. This can not be done when a government's relief organization becomes more horrific to its own citizens than the colonists who forced them to the streets of neighboring countries.
Fikile Mbalula words must lead to a very honest dialogue with the Junta in Zimbabwe. ZanuPF leaders must make hay while the sun shines. It's not too late to look back objectively. There are many junior politicians in the region who share a word for word about what Fikile Mbalula said.
Zapu claims that Mnangagwa must have an honest willingness to engage with everyone, not only to meet those who agree with them at State House. Having dialogues that mean the opposition parties are irrelevant will not lead to any convincing development. It is interpreted as neutralizing the opposition through a cup of tea at State House.
Mkhululi Zulu is Zapu's Presidential Spokesperson.
