HARARE ‑ Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has on Thursday, reached out to his MDC Alliance opponent Nelson Chamisa regarding the prevailing tense situation in the country.
“We have been in communication with Nelson Chamisa to discuss how to immediately diffuse the situation, and we must maintain this dialogue in order to protect the peace we hold dear,” he said on his official Twitter account.
“It is also more important than ever that we are united, and commit to settling our differences peacefully and respectfully, and within the confines of the law.”
Mnangagwa, who Wednesday night, blamed Chamisa of inciting demonstrations which led to four deaths, seemed to be having a change of heart.
Thursday morning, he said there was need for him and the opposition leader to lead by example and show all Zimbabweans that peace was paramount.
