MDC Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa has retracted the statement he recently made at a press conference, that the 1st of August protesters were stupid.

“May You Be Visited By The Winds Of Sanity”: Chamisa Tells State Media

He made the shocking remarks at Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House on Thursday afternoon responding to a subpoena by the commission of inquiry which implicated him in the pre and post election violence on August 1, that led to the death of 6 civilians.

In his defense through a tweet, Chamisa said that he used words that regrettably created the wrong impression.

Speaking at the conference, his actual words were:

”It was very stupid for people who demonstrated, to demonstrate for the results to be released, it was stupid because they then opened themselves for attacks and for manipulation. I think whoever demonstrated have their right but it was not called for and that’s my view. I’m not insulting them but I have a right just like any other because it was premature, it was unstrategic and opened them to be manipulated by the enemies of the people, and the enemies of peace, the merchants of violence, the archbishops of violence,” said Chamisa.

The sanity of his statement invited vitriolic attacks on social media, with many accusing him of throwing his supporters under the bus and distancing himself from being implicated in inciting the post election violence.

Here are some of the comments responding to his tweet.
