Zimbabwe's Chamisa Ready to Talk - But Wants Army Off The Streets

Zimbabwe's main opposition leader Nelson Chamisa has repeated his commitment to talks with President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Speaking in Harare at a breakfast prayer meeting, he said however that it needed to be acknowledged that the national impasse stemmed from the disputed 2018 elections. He said: "We cannot have dialogue when other people are in prison and others are wailing on account of politics...".
