Parties To Mnangagwa Dialogue To Choose Convener
Parties to President Mnangagwa’s dialogue are set to meet on Friday to choose the convener.
National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) chair retired Justice Selo Masole Nare said the talks will continue on Friday. 23 parties which took part in last year’s harmonised elections were supposed to be part of the national dialogue process initiated by Mnangagwa. However, only 17, including small and insignificant parties, according to poll results, are making the numbers. Said Nare:
It’s going to continue on Friday the 29th, we should have held it on the 22nd, but as you know, there were these disasters in the country and the President was running around meeting people and assessing the situation in Chimanimani. Friday I went to his office to hand him the report, our last report. So Friday will be the day when we will go back to discuss the final analysis of the report. The committees have met and produced reports, which we consolidated into one report and it will be presented to the President and then he will present his remarks. The political parties’ gurus will make their remarks on Friday. If everything goes well, they will choose the convener as well, then the meetings will take place in a normal situation, depending on when and where the convener would like to have those meetings.
