THE opposition MDC went into the Government of National Unity (GNU) between 2009-2013 without a plan and failed to utilise the opportunity, new party leader Nelson Chamisa has admitted.

While the MDC has consistently claimed glory for stabilising the economy, after then party leader Morgan Tsvangirai joined arch-foe and ex-President Robert Mugabe following inconclusive elections in 2008, Chamisa said the opposition went into government "sat and ate."

Chamisa was speaking at the launch of the opposition's latest policy blue-print titled Return to Economic Recovery, Legitimacy, Openness and Democracy (RELOAD) in Harare vowing never to repeat the same mistake.

"We got in the inclusive government and just sat there, spent five years in there. We came out without doing anything," said Chamisa.

After losing last year's presidential elections, Chamisa unsuccessfully approached the Constitutional Court in a bid to overturn the result.
