"Mnangagwa Did Not Snub US-Africa Summit"

President Emmerson Mnangagwa will not attend the US-Africa summit running from 13 to 15 December, but Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Frederick Shava will instead represent Zimbabwe at the summit.

In a series of posts on Twitter on Tuesday, Deputy Chief Secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet George Charamba denied reports that Mnangagwa had snubbed the United States.

Charamba said the Ministerial level representation is a result of specific terms spelled out in Washington’s invitation to Harare. He said:

The facts are as follows: The US government for the first time broke with tradition to invite the Zimbabwean government to participate at the summit. It went further to indicate the level of representation it preferred, namely that of our Foreign Minister, Dr Frederick Shava.

It should be appreciated this is a US government event, in which case the US enjoys the right and prerogative of a host, which right they exercised as best they saw how.

With that stricture in mind, the Zimbabwean government decided to send the Foreign Minister, who is already in Washington for the US-Africa Summit.

President ED Mnangagwa did not snub any invite; none came asking for his direct participation.

Engagement on the illegal sanctions will take place at the summit. In fact, a few meetings with US government officials were lined up for the Foreign Minister, and these (are) to take place ahead of the summit.

This is why the Honourable Minister had to leave for Washington from Angola.

This year, for the first time, the United States of America asked Harare to be represented at the US-Africa Summit since its inception in 2014. | NewZiana

So in truth, it is Mnangagwa who has been snubbed from the US-Africa Summit. Mwana wamambo muranda kumwe. USA haisi opposition yamunoponda nekumanikidza kuita zvido zvenyu. Handiti ED took sides with Putin, supporting the massacre of Ukrainians. Ngaakokwe kuRussia nekuBherarus...

Someone is being economic with the truth here. That summit is for heads of state. However in inviting Zimbabwe the US government made it clear that in Zimbabwe's case, because The Head of State is sanctioned from visiting the USA, a Minister could/should stand in his stead.

ED had no option in the matter. Either he sent a Minister or Zimbabwe wouldn't be represented.

I heard as if the Minister was going to say something at the US and African leaders meeting. Either us or the deputy secretary have confusion or the deputy secretary is trying to confuse us. How can anyone of us including those on top be respected by other nations if we do not show respect for each other?

Words hurt. This is a direct confrontation. We don't need you in the States is the writing on the wall.

To be told to send a representative is so insulting.

Tarzan of the Apes was fighting a lion in Africa,
He won, but at the price of his eye, his arm, and his ****.
His jungle friends back home said they would help him out
by giving him the spare parts he needed.
They gave him an eye of an eagle, an arm of a gorilla, and
an elephants trunk for a ****. A couple weeks later a chimp
stops by and asks Tarzan how his new parts are.
Tarzan said “Eye make Tarzan see far, arm make Tarzan
strong, but Tarzan no like new wee-wee”.
The chimp asks “Why not?”
Tarzan responds “It keeps picking weeds and shoving up
Tarzan’s ass”.
