President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Friday met with leaders of opposition political parties that contested the 2018 Presidential elections to discuss the way forward as far as the National Dialogue is concerned.

Giving an update on the meeting the Spokesperson of MDC-T Linda Masarira said, "The second dialogue for political parties which was held earlier today successfully established four committees and seconded nominees to the relevant committees which will determine key four issues before the National  Dialogue  commences.

"The 4 committees are namely:

a) Committee on Institutional framework to design the structure, composition and operational modalities for the dialogue
b) Committee on Agenda setting to come up with issues to constitute the agenda for the dialogue process .
c) Committee to deal with identification of the convener\moderator of the dialogue
d) Implementation and evaluation committee to assess the extent to which the dialogue framework is serving its purpose and recommend the necessary remedial measures."

Masarira also said the meeting agreed on the agenda of the dialogue which is to solve bread and butter issues.

"It was unanimously agreed that we are dialoguing to share progressive ideas on how to deliver the bread and butter issues to the suffering people of Zimbabwe in our quest to ensure sustainable human  economic development ."

MDC leader Nelson Chamisa boycotted the dialogue meeting as he did the first one citing biasness of the convener President Mnangagwa and saying the venue gives the ZANU PF leader an unfair advantage.

On Wednesday MDC resolved to engage in a dialogue with Mnangagwa as long as the dialogue is convened by a credible person who is independent.
