President Mnangagwa and his deputies – Cdes Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi – met the delegation of the African National Congress (ANC) from South Africa last night and briefed it on the situation that arose after the brutal demonstrations sponsored by the Alliance ILS that led to casualties.
The members for the ANC delegation arrived on Monday to meet with their colleagues from Zimbabwe during a solidarity visit that received blessing of other regional liberation movements.
The ruling party of South Africa supports Zanu-PF and seeks to help the latter in the light of economic problems and attempts to isolate the country from the international community against the backdrop of pressure from the local opposition and its allies abroad.
The secretary of the Zanu-PF administration, Cde Obert Mpofu, confirmed the meeting last night.
“It was a polite call to the president. The president was supposed to inform the delegation right from the time when the new permit came; the road went to a violent demonstration last week, during which the MDC and its allies destroyed the infrastructure and blocked the free movement of vehicles and people under the pretext of protesting against rising fuel prices, ”said Cde Obert Mpofu.“It was a fraternal meeting of solidarity from the fraternal parties,” he said.
