MDC-T president Douglas Mwonzora says he is involved in a coalition talk with President Emmerson Mnangagwa which would eventually see him becoming the country’s Prime Minister in a government of national unity.

He said this while addressing party supporters in Marondera at the weekend, where the party’s leadership sought to consult its structures on the need for a GNU.

“This is one of the first meetings we are doing, to spread our message of dialogue; our message is to make people ready for elections. But basically, it was consultations and advising people of the decision made by the national council for us to intensify the issue of dialogue,” Mwonzora said.

“The results of dialogues are known. We may have a GNU or whatever arrangement, and that is what I was talking about. We want to follow in the footsteps of Morgan Tsvangirai. He did dialogue and it was in the best interests of the people of Zimbabwe. And we want to follow suit. It is up to the people of Zimbabwe; I am ready to serve what the people of Zimbabwe will ask me to do.”

Mwonzora’s party has been at loggerheads with the MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa by recalling its MPs and taking over its (MDC Alliance) party headquarters and political funding from the fiscus.

It has often been referred to as a Zanu PF project, but Mwonzora denies the allegations.
