HARARE-- Defeated Zimbabwe opposition leader Nelson Chamisa has ruled out working with the ruling party, Zanu-PF, in a coalition or government of national unity.
His party, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance, has decided to file a petition with the African Commission on Human and People's rights, maintaining the July 30 general election was rigged.
The killing of six people in recent protests in Harare remains unresolved. That was not our demonstrations, ours have thousands. In terms of the August 1 incident, it is clear that it was an illegal act, whoever was violent, that was unacceptable, but police were supposed to kick in but you don't choose your supporters, said Chamisa here Tuesday.
In spite of the Constitutional Court ruling declaring President Emmerson Mnangagwa the winner of the presidential elections and Mnangagwa extending an olive branch, Chamisa is not accepting it.
He said dialogue and co-operation are important but they must be based on truth, not deception and falsehoods. He accuses Mnangagwa of cheating the whole world.
People are actually saying Mr Chamisa don't work with these people, don't join hands with the Crocodile (Mnanggagwa), he will drown you. Look at what happened to (the late MDC leader, Morgan) Tsvingirai, he was diluted, we were diluted and ended up being manipulated out of government, said Chamisa.
"We don't want positions, we want alternative government.
