ZANU PF Castigates Britain For "Meddling" In Zimbabwe's Internal Affairs

ZANU PF Castigates Britain For

ZANU PF spokesperson and Secretary for Information and Publicity, Christopher Mutsvangwa, said that Britain should remember that Zimbabwe is a sovereign country and should therefore desist from interfering in the internal affairs of its former colony.

This comes after the UK Minister of State for the Pacific and the International Environment, Frank Zacharias Robin Goldsmith recently told the House of Lords that Zimbabwe is yet to meet certain conditions to be readmitted into the Commonwealth.

Lord Jonathan Oates also told the British House of Lords that the Douglas Mwonzora-led MDC Alliance is nothing but a ruling ZANU PF party project.

Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters in Harare on Tuesday, 3 May, Mutsvangwa said the United Kingdom should keep out of Zimbabwe’s internal affairs. Said Mutsvangwa:

To debate Zimbabwe in the British Parliament, we are 42 years into Independence.

We just celebrated our 42 years of Independence last month. We are now the second generation of free Zimbabweans.

One would have thought that just as much as the independence is so now much engraved in Zimbabwean culture, the British public, the British Government, and the British establishments will also by this time have forgotten that they used to colonise Zimbabwe.

This [interference] we reject with the contempt it deserves. We condemn it  as it is against the norms of the United Nations where Britain is a founder and a sovereign member.

A founder member notwithstanding, it was an imperial power which was ruling many countries, at that time including Rhodesia, purporting and preaching democracy as the virtues of founding aspirations of the United Nations. But they were still colonial masters to us.

… We say to the British, much as you guard your imperial hankering to be master of Zimbabwe, we will also jealously guard our Independence.

There are great benefits for joining Commonwealth primarily in terms of trade. Western side pays for our minerals better than the Eastern friends. 4 by 4 by far. Unfortunately for Mr Mutsvangwa Commonwealth is not Zimbabwean internal affairs. He has to go back to primary school, that's where we learned about Commonwealth. They have to be on their knees to be readmitted.

ZANU PF Blabbermouth, Christopher Mutsvangwa does not understand International issues. The British House of the Lord's member of Parliament did not say Zimbabwe is misgoverning. He said Zimbabwe is failing to meet Commonwealth rejoining conditions. I remember very well that Zimbabwe applied to rejoin the Commonwealth and there were set conditions which Zimbabwe was told must comply with. They include respect of Human Rights and the Rule of Law, among others. There is no way Blabbermouth Christopher Mutsvangwa can stop British Parliament to discuss Zimbabwe as long as it is in connection with the Commonwealth. If Zimbabwe wants to rejoin the Commonwealth, it must be serious, otherwise it shall stay in the peripheral of the Commonwealth.

You can't have it both ways Mkoma Chris. If you want to rejoin The Commonwealth then you have to play by the rules governing that grouping.

You can't overplayed the sovereignty mantra and want to be part of a group. You can use sovereignty and want to be in the Commonwealth at the same time.
