Opposition leader Nelson Chamisa says he will approach Sadc and the African Union in a bid to compel the government to accept former South African President Thabo Mbeki as a mediator in the country's political deadlock.
Meanwhile, the MDC leader says he has given up on dialogue with President Emmerson Mnangagwa over disputed elections and the opposition party is changing tack in its efforts to force concessions from the ruling party.

Chamisa has consistently refused to recognise Mnangagwa's 2018 poll victory, accusing the Zanu-PF leader of rigging the polls with the help of the military.

On the other hand, the president refuses to hold talks with his main rival outside a platform he created with fringe political parties that took part in the controversial polls.

Chamisa said Mnangagwa stood to benefit from the proposed talks, but had spurned his overtures.
