By A Correspondent- President Emmerson Mnangagwa has accused church leaders under the Zimbabwe Heads of Christian Denominations (ZHoCD) banner of siding with MDC leader Nelson Chamisa to rob him of his electoral victory in 2018.

In his response to the recent calls by ZHOCD to suspend elections for seven years to allow the country to heal from the bloodshed witnessed in the past elections, Mnangagwa wrote:

The agenda you take in those seven politically lean years is full of items that easily identify with the manifesto of a known political party, and that adamantly repudiates all progress registered to date under my administration … I hope this is mere inadvertency on your part, lest your bona fides get deservedly questioned.

Mnangagwa claimed that the MDC is the real enemy following its alleged calls for illegal Western sanctions against Zimbabwe, and fomenting deadly violence on August 1, 2018, and again in mid-January 2019.
