MDC-Alliance member and outgoing Bulawayo South legislator Mr Eddie Cross says Mr Nelson Chamisa, who intends to challenge the Presidential election result, is wasting his time as the outcome of Monday’s harmonised election is a true reflection of the people’s will.

The July 30 elections, he said, were the most democratic elections ever held in the past 18 years.

The 78-year-old politician, who predicted Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa’s victory before the polls, said it is time the country gets down to business.

In an interview with The Sunday Mail yesterday, Mr Cross said he doubts the courts will overturn the election results if the MDC-Alliance goes ahead with its challenge.

“Let’s get down to business and start rebuilding Zimbabwe. We must work together and I have no doubt about the outcome. Zimbabwe has the potential to move forward and together in peace and unity, we can achieve that.

“I doubt that the courts will overturn the results. The people spoke and their will has to be respected. These were the most democratic elections since 2000,” said Mr Cross.

Mr Cross urged President Mnangagwa to put together a competent Cabinet to turn around the economy.

Last week, the Zimbabwe Election Support Network endorsed both Presidential and Parliamentary results and said that their figures where tallying with those released by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.

    Congratulations on finally showing everybody that you are actually ZANU, Eddie. It has taken some time but we always thought so. In Cecil Rhodes’ s words – “every man has his price.” You ave shown your price today.

    Just because he holds a different opinion he is now being labelled Zanu PF? This is why we can’t move on as a country.

      What about the 6 people shot by Zanu in Harare – shot like dogs mind you – just the same as all the other
      20 000 to 25 000 persons murdered by Zanu?
      Eddie is most welcome to join Zanu – but we are simply acknowledging it properly – because he is endorsing the Murdering Party by his own choice.
      Eddie needs to get an ED scarf now. He loves ED so a scarf will be a good totem.
      Similarly we have the right to condemn ongoing Zanu murder and genocide?

        Ndebele grow up from that little skin covering you. Zimbabwe is larger than those histories.

        At this age you still hold a garage of Gukukurahundi 31 years after unity Accord of 1987. That’s silly

    The only reason I moved from MDC is the childish behavior they always display when you say the truth. If you disagree with an illfamed misconstructed plan, you are zanu pf. They like zanu pf so much such that in Zimbabwe politics its only two parties to them zanu pf and mdc-two sided no multiplicity of views is accepted, it is either head and tail. God never allow children to run unless we have a leader to guide them for mentorship. Imagine Biti and Chamisa being presidency.

      Perhaps Biti and Chamisa are too dedicated to the welfare of the people – and Zanu has brainwashed you guys to think that a Paramount Chief like Mugabe or Hitler is the answer? I mean – if they want to start Gukuruhundi 2 tomorrow – it is quite fine by you guys because Putin does it? Brilliant logic? That is to say – you must not follow the law – just call in the Fifth Brigade? I mean – call in the all the international observers and get the Giggling British High Commissioner to wear an ED scarf – and the rest will be plain sailing? Where was ED during the Gukuruhundi? Where was Shiri during the Gukuruhundi? Where was Chiwenga during the Gukuruhundi? If the people of Zimbabwe thin the same as you – there is going to be a lot more blood spilt because you do not seem to fully appreciate what happened in the Genocide? There have been Nazis prosecuted 40 or 50 years after the genocide in Germany. Why should these murderers now think that they can become cleansed politicians by wearing a scarf or dinner jacket? What do you guys smoke?

        Where do you guys get your mbanje from? It must be brilliant stuff. You support Zanu that has murdered 25 000 civilians and destroyed an economy to the point where there is 95% unemployment – but still you all ululate the man who murders the people? It is a real worry when you see the Stockholm Syndrome actually working in and on peoples’ minds – and the people thin that they are real boffins and that their political leaders are real angels. It may be better to leave you guys to smoke what ever it is you all smoke with the two EDs – ED and ED Cross?

    Eddie has been very consistent from as far back as 2017 about these elections. ZANU PF is a full time job and part time as most of the opposition parties. Concentrating on just opposing every point that seems positive is a cancer that is destroying our once progressive opposition politics. Lets remember that you join politics in order to be a leader of the people one day. Stop being negative all the time and move forward.
    Eddie is only being realistic and not being partisan. What does he benefit from being ZANU or MDC?
