THE Nelson Chamisa-led MDC yesterday poured cold water on the political dialogue to be officially launched today by President Emmerson Mnangagwa, describing the process as a waste of State resources.

Mnangagwa is in dialogue with small parties that contested last year's harmonised elections and failed to make any impact. The main opposition MDC has boycotted the dialogue.

"We cannot have a situation where he talks to himself among his own cheer-leaders and then says he is having a dialogue. He has no conflict with those small parties or motley crew of individuals that he has with him, why is he allowing himself to pretend to have a national dialogue when clearly the person who represents over 50% of the nation is not there at the dialogue," MDC spokesperson Jacob Mafume said.

"How does he think it will solve the nation, a person who has almost all the urban councils and that number of MPs and rural councillors too, is not there at that dialogue? That is a pure waste of time, resources and lying to himself and why he continues lying to himself and pretends to think the nation believes his lies is a mystery to us?"
