MDC-T supports dialogue with Mnangagwa

We the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) restate our well documented position that we are part of the on going national dialogue process to focus on salient national issues that continue to impede social, political and economic development of our people and the nation at large.

We continue to be saddened by our failure as a people to resolve this national crisis premised on a misnorma that only an elite deal making process can resolve the current economic internecine bedeviling our beloved country. We believe that as a party founded on the cornerstone of our unmoved principles of selflessness that our dialogue should go beyond a power sharing arrangement. We also state categorically that we are in political society to serve and not to be served on the higher table. We believe people's livelihoods are greater than our insatiable appetite for power and its spoils. We call upon all responsible political leaders to think about the suffering of our people and how we can collectively find lasting solutions to this jigsaw.

We met today, 22 February 2019 at state house as political players as a follow up to our inaugural meeting of the 6th of February 2019 were we agreed to form four dialogue process framework committees that is the institutional framework, agenda setting, identification of convenor and the monitoring and evaluation committee. We are happy to inform the national and the global family that we achieved that milestone today. Parties deployed their cadres to these four committees without any fights, itself a show of unity of purpose and altruism.

This is a national dialogue which we believe with all our collectiveness that it shall reap the desired national results. We continue to call other political players to find reason to contribute to the national cause by either joining this political parties national dialogue platform or contribute positively in the manner that does not upscale conflict but resonates well with the wishes of our constituencies.

In the next week, we shall continue to lay the firm foundation for this sacred national dialogue process without fear or favour. We are not here to negotiate for power but to contribute to the broader debate of national development and creation of equal opportunities for all. Let us thrive to be in the shoes of our departed and heroic leader, Dr. Morgan Tsvangirai. May his soul rest in eternal peace. Forward ever, backwards never.
