Zimbabwe president ED Mnangagwa developed cold feet after opposition leader Mr Nelson Chamisa requested a face to face meeting with him.

Chamisa’s office then wrote a letter which was recently made public by Mnangagwa’s office following a big opposition demonstration in Harare.

Said Chamisa:

“I wrote to ED Mnangagwa offering him advice, but he refused fearing that I would grab power from him. I did that after realising that we could only take the country forward through collective leadership, but he refused to meet me.

“I told (President)Mnangagwa to come and let us talk. People do agree. He refused. Then I said if you don’t understand, I am writing a letter to you.”

Chamisa’s letter reads:

“We write, Your Excellency, seeking the indulgence of your esteemed office for a courtesy visit to your office by the president of MDC-T, Honourable Advocate Nelson Chamisa. We pray that you shall favour us with indications of your earliest convenience should you be pleased to accede to our humble request.

Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of our highest consideration.”
