MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has poked fun at Vice President Constantino Chiwenga describing him as the biggest conveyor of his promise he is going to deliver spaghetti roads to Zimbabweans if elected State leader.
Chamisa was addressing a press conference on poll reforms at the Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House on Tuesday.
The young presidential hopeful has been brandishing the ambitious vision of bullet trains and spaghetti roads among Zimbabweans who troop to polling stations month end to choose their next leaders.
He has received as much admiration as he has, equally, received contempt from critics.
Chiwenga said during a Zanu PF rally at Gwanzura Stadium, Harare, Monday that, “we (Zanu PF) want to create circle roads in Harare to ease congestion”.
Equally, Chamisa has placed the refurbishment of roads key to his election messaging.
The MDC-T leader believes the State VP was inadvertently welcoming his innovation.
“I see that now he is one of my spokespersons in the message and one of the key believers…I like it when your opponent becomes your disciple,” he said.
Chamisa went on to praise the ex-military boss for embracing ideas which promoted change and connecting to the MDC Alliance message.
“I want to congratulate General Chiwenga for not being resistant to the message we have sent across,” he said.
Chamisa went on to emphasise that Chiwenga indeed supported his vision regardless of how he had initially described it as “childish talk”.
“The Vice President of Zanu PF General Chiwenga Retired has now even joined on realising that it’s possible to believe spaghetti roads,” he said.
