Andy Hodges and Blessing Munatsi as they host a panel from politics and civil society, to discuss Zimbabwe’s political dialogue. Will there be a final solution to Zimbabwe’s problems?
Victoria Mujati–I am sick of hearing all these so called church leaders who are preaching about dialogue, I would suggest that before that dialogue Mnangagwa must step down then we as a country can move forward. You can hold so many of these so called platforms and lie to the nation.You can not insist on having a union between Zanu Pf and MDC that is not the solution the country needs.All I can say if you are a church leader and taking money from zanu pf you are part of the problem, if you are in the police and the army, you are part of the problem, why you killed people first and threaten their lives if the exercise their constitutional right. For the past 39 years zanu pf has been looting all the resources for themselves. Zanu pf needs to be taken to the ICC for defrauding the people of zimbabwe. Mnagwagwa did not win and he ignored the recommendations made by the EU as well as his own fake commission he appointed.He was handed the presidency by his judges in the constitutional court disregarding the constitution.

Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who replaced longtime leader Robert Mugabe after an army coup in November 2017, is trying to repair an economy ruined by hyperinflation and a long succession of failed economic interventions.
President Mnangagwa: It has always been clear that for our economy to truly take off, we need our own currency. My full statement is below;

AIWA! NO!|Lovemore, Pindula News|Renowned journalist Hopewell Chin’ono said that the police and the military blocked MDC president Nelson Chamisa from getting to the late Oliver Mtukudzi’s homestead on Sunday where the late singer was expected to be buried.
The incident is said to have taken place right in front of the South African Ambassador to Zimbabwe. Writing on microblogging site Twitter today, Chin’ono said:
Once again today the police & military blocked @nelsonchamisa from getting into @TukuOfficial’s rural homestead right in front of the South African ambassador. Mourners had to kick the Gate down in revulsion of what the security services were doing! Embarrassing for Gov & ED.
Human rights activist Patson Dzamara weighed in and revealed further details about the incident. He wrote:
I wonder how low ZANU-PF can sink. They again tried to block the people’s President @nelsonchamisa from entering Tuku’s homestead in Madziwa today. This is despicable and totally unacceptable.
It is terribly shocking to learn that mourners actually had to vandalize the gate in protest over the police & army’s refusal to allow President @nelsonchamisa entry into Tuku’s homestead in Madziva. This is moronic & embarrassing. Havanyare vanhu ava (these people are shameless).
After yesterday’s incident, President Chamisa could have decided not to attend the burial but he still went and of course, the lumpens were at it again today. That is exactly the spirit needed when dealing with forces of evil. You keep moving. Well done President @nelsonchamisa.
Reports indicate that disgusted mourners pulled down one of the gates to the homestead which allowed Chamisa to gain entrance.
This is the second time that the security services have denied Chamisa access to events to do with Mtukudzi’s funeral. On Saturday, Chamisa was reportedly blocked from entering the National Sports Stadium to attend a concert organised in tribute to Mtukudzi.
