a) Dialogue & Negotiation are two different things though one may intersect with the other on a Venn diagram.
b) There is NO dispute between ED & Chamisa, even though Chamisa y/day said he has a dispute.
Only Chamisa said he has a dispute. He implies he has a dispute with Mnangagwa. Such reasoning is fatally flawed!
He either has a dispute with all candidates or with @ZECzim.
He filed a Concourt challenge heard by a full bench. It was the first televised hearing in Zimbabwe. History was made. Minute by minute! @HMAMelanieR
Concourt took an unusual step of hearing the case on the merits, even though it shld hv failed on points in limine.
Before the hearing, Chamisa told an international reporter “We have the proof my brother”
His words, not mine👇🏽
Confusing rallies with ballots to stock violence.
Japajapa says “as civic society organizations” - what CSO says that? Are CSOs political organisations? Does that include ZCTU?
He either has has a dispute with 23 presidential candidates or with @ZECzim
It seems he has a despute with the court! He can’t have a dispute with a candidate of the same election he contested in.
But he still claims a dispute! Dispute with who? 🤷🏽♂️
In 2000, Bush & Al Gore ran in an election where deciding vote was in Florida. Matter went to Supreme Court which ruled in favour of Bush. Gore had the popular vote but he respected the court & conceded.
It must be noted that the US SC a politically constituted court. That is why hearings for new appointments are always highly charged & debated.
Are we to think that he will be another Mugabe who respected only his opinion?
If you can’t respect the nation’s institutions, Saka Uri munhu rudzii?
There surely shd be dialogue among citizens. Nationals shld always dialogue in Parly, in churches, wherever.
Chamisa seems to think there will be a special meeting btwn him & ED. NO.
He is just like every citizen.
- with ED? That can’t be, he was just another candidate.
- With @ZECzim? Can’t be since it was settled by Concourt.
- with Concourt?
Or is it that some1 somewhere has told him to keep disputing without reason?
Electoral process in Zimbabwe after several years of improvement is far more watertight than in most countries!
So whose dispute is it?
