“RE: Mugabe Courts Dabengwa for VP post”

Dear Editor 

I would like to correct some misconceptions that have been created by an article published in the Zimbabwe Independent newspaper of January 10, 2014, headlined “Mugabe Courts Dabengwa for VP post”

In this telephonic interview with their Elias Mambo, I explained to him that Zapu had responded to the challenge to Zapu members and others to return to Zanu. ZAPU, and I personally, did not send this response to the ruling party offices or any other official channels.

We used the same method they had laid down the challenge on, the public media. I further emphasised that our response had only been published – in full – on page 8 of the 30 December edition of the Southern Eye newspaper.

I also clarified that there had never been any formal approach made by Zanu to us, except what we read in the media.

I explained that in our response to the Press utterances by Zanu and its acolytes, we had set clear parameters and I had no wish to distort them by further comment. Those in Zanu wishing to engage us in any discussions would have to take them into account before approaching us.

Please note that there have been no formal approaches except what seem to be challenges issued in the media. I never said that “we would have no problems” going back to Zanu, those are mere figments of a very fertile and hostile imagination. After all, this issue is well explained in our Press Statement of 29 December, which makes it clear that ZAPU would never return into the Unity Accord arrangement.
