Former minister predicts GNU after 2023 elections

Exiled former minister of Tourism and Hospitality Walter Mzembi says there is going to be dialogue and the formation of a government of national unity (GNU) after this year’s much antiy general elections.

Mzembi, in hidding in South Africa since the 2017 coup which toppled the late former Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe.

The coup hounded Mzembi and other members of Zanu-PF’s G40 faction including Jonathan Moyo, Savout of the country.

“…what I see coming (is a) constitutional stalemate which may be predicated by a defaulted Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) delimitation report if challenged.

“It will usher us to the next stage of political engagement and inclusive dialogue,” said Mzembi.

“These are not my feelings I am expressing, I am just analysing what is going on and what can possibly happen.” The last GNU was formed in 2009 between the opposition MDCs and the ruling Zanu-PF.

“It was led by late former President Robert Mugabe and his nemesis, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai until 2013 when the arrangement ended.”

Mugabe and Tsvangirai’s GNU paused a decade-long economic crisis that had eroded salaries and destroyed livelihoods across the country.
