Zimbabwean opposition leader Nelson Chamisa has accepted an invitation to participate in an interview with the local radio station, ZiFM Stereo. The privately-owned radio station was the first of its kind to receive a license in Zimbabwe and is owned by Supa Collins Mandiwanzira, a member of the ruling ZANU PF party. In a tweet, the station expressed interest in hosting Chamisa, describing him as a “key public figure” and stating that they were open to interviewing him. They also expressed a willingness to work out the details with him.
Although the invitation was rebuked by CCC Matabeleland North Chairman Prince Dubeko Sibanda for being unprofessional, CCC deputy spokesperson Gift “Ostallos” Siziba welcomed the opportunity and promised to get in touch with the station. Responding to the invitation, Chamisa stated that he was ready to participate in the interview and directed the radio station to contact his media team. He expressed his willingness to address the Zimbabwean people and stated that the country needed “this kind of fairness.”
Chamisa is a prominent opposition figure in Zimbabwe and leads the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance. He has been a vocal critic of President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the ruling ZANU PF party, frequently calling for political reforms in the country. The upcoming interview is expected to provide Chamisa with a platform to share his views on the political situation in Zimbabwe. It remains to be seen when the interview will take place and what topics will be covered.
