 "I invite leaders of all political parties as well as religious and civil leaders to set aside our differences and come together," said President Mnangagwa via his Twitter account.

"What unites us is stronger than what could ever divide us. Let's begin a national dialogue. Let's put the economy first. Let's put the people."

The country's economic and political crisis stems from the refusal by Zanu PF to accept that it has failed and allow the ordinary people to have a meaningful say in the governance of the country.

If we are going to be united then we must be united by truth, justice and common sense. We should be one in pledging our commitment to the freedoms and rights of all our citizen as stated in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights notably the right to life and the right to a meaningful say in the governance of one's country.

Article 21 of the UN Declaration states.
(1)    Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives.

(2)    Everyone has the right of equal access to public service in his country.

(3)    The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government; this will shall be expressed in periodic and genuine elections which shall be by universal and equal suffrage and shall be held by secret vote or by equivalent free voting procedures.

Zimbabwe is divided today and brother is harassing, beating and even killing fellow brothers and sisters for no other reason other than that the Zanu PF ruling elite will not accept the fundament reality that every Zimbabwean has a right to a meaningful say in the governance of the country.
Zanu PF has routinely rigged elections for the last 38 years with the political and economic consequences we see all round the country today, the total economic ruins and a nation cowing under a brutal dictatorship. The cup is full to overflow.
Mr Mnangagwa you and your Zanu PF junta have no mandate to govern Zimbabwe because you rigged last July's elections. You are illegitimate!

It is not for you to call for national dialogue, it is for you to listen to the nation's demand that you step down. "What unites us is stronger than what could ever divide us!" Your insatiable greed for power and wealth is what has divided this nation for the last 38 years. You have held this nation to ransom and this must now end!

Zanu PF must step down now before the regime drags the nation any deeper into this hell-on-earth Zanu PF landed us into!

What has divided this nation is Zanu PF's insatiable greed for power and wealth and it cannot be allowed to continue to divide us hence the demand for the regime to step down without further ado.
