MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora says he has no personal issues with Nelson Chamisa who leads rival MDC Alliance saying the latter views him as a good guy.
Speaking to Cde Fatso in last week’s episode of The Week, Mwonzora said that his differences with Chamisa were just on leadership styles. He said:
_The relationship between myself and Chamisa is not a personal one, we have no personal issues against each other. We tolerate each other, I think he is a particularly nice guy he is funny; he wears nice shirts and so on._
_I do not simply agree with his leadership styles, and he also thinks that in some instances I am a good guy that is what he normally tells people._

Asked what he would do if he were stuck on a crocodile-infested island with Chamisa, Mwonzora said he would try to save him. He said:
_He is a Zimbabwean, he is my brother, and I would try to save him from the crocodile if I can, just like I am trying to save him from the political folly that he is trying to get into._
_The association with G40 is a kiss of death, nothing good is going to come from the association with Jonathan Moyo and so on, the politics do allow it._
_I will do my best to try to talk to him, I have extended an olive branch on more than two occasions. The first one we met at a funeral after I had taken over as President. I said to him two things directing to him, that we have absolutely no option but to unite the people of Zimbabwe._
_Number two we have absolutely no option but to tackle the Zimbabwean problems together as people of one family._
He added that he understands that Chamisa, just like President Emmerson Mnangagwa are Zimbabweans with a particular way of looking at politics and life and they have the right to be. Mwonzora added:
_And I do not mind that he is leading his party and so on, but his supporters must know that in as much as they have that right other people have those rights too. They must not spend all their time on Mwonzora._
Some believe there is bad blood between Chamisa and Mwonzora following their fallout over the party leadership.
