Internal pressure to hold demonstrations against President Emmerson Mnangagwa over the worsening economic situation in the country has been mounting in MDC Alliance, however Nelson Chamisa has moved in to block all plans of any form of protest so as to give room for dialogue, sources said.
Last week MDC Alliance Youth Assembly leader Happymore Chidziva, MDC Alliance organising secretary Amos Chibaya, Youth Secretary General Lovemore Chinoputsa and Party secretary Murisi Zwizwai held a meeting where they agreed that they could take advantage of the economic decline in the country and hold massive demonstrations until Mnangagwa steps down.
It was agreed that even people who are not MDC Alliance sympathisers were going to join since they would have spent most of their time in the streets looking for fuel and basic commodities.
Chamisa, who previously insisted that he had won the 2018 harmonised elections and wanted to fight Mnangagwa until his victory had been overturned has taken a shift from his earlier combative mood and is now seeking dialogue.
The calls for dialogue has been dividing MDC Alliance with two camps having divergent opinions.
