"As soon as the congress ends, there will be protests. They will not stop us," Chamisa4 years ago
MDC Leader Nelson Chamisa said yesterday that his party would make sure that President Emmerson Mnangagwa fails. He also said that his party would hold protests and that the government would not be able to stop them.
Speaking at the MDC Congress in Gweru on Saturday, Chamisa said that he was not interested in sharing power but genuine dialogue to end the economic problems in Zimbabwe. He, however, emphasised that he does not recognise Mnangagwa as the legitimate president of Zimbabwe.
We are going to make sure that you (Mnangagwa) fail. We invited traditional leaders because we honour our chiefs. We also invited the Speaker of Parliament, but he didn’t come.
I saw enemies of the people trying to go to the courts and I told them that when it comes to the courts you will not defeat us because we have the best legal team.

What we are saying to Zanu PF leaders is that it is now time for new leaders with fresh ideas and leaders who can make new mistakes.
We are going to elect a new leadership that is going to take us to another level. Everyone is campaigning democratically. There are some who are saying that we want to overthrow Mnangagwa. No, we don’t overthrow what is not there.
Zanu PF has rigged elections enough and we will not go to an election that we lose before the election.
We must make sure we have a democratic election as soon as possible and if they refuse we will force them to go for elections before 2023.
We don’t want political dialogue to share power, but national dialogue to share ideas. What we want to deal with are all the issues to make sure we move forward.
As soon as the congress ends, it will be war. They will not stop us … No party has title deeds for this country. I am not afraid of dying or being arrested. I tell you this, ED will not go anywhere until we resolve the political crisis.
