Speaking during last week’s commemorations of the Black History Month organised by the Zimbabwe United States Alumni Association (ZUSAA), United States envoy, Harry Thomas Jr, pledged to maintain cordial working relations with President Robert Mugabe’s government.
Said Thomas Jr:
I am glad that President (Robert) Mugabe wants to have a good relationship with his counterpart, our 45th president. I want to say that we will maintain our policies here. America’s commitment to Zimbabwe has remained strong including through the President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief, which was started during President (George) Bush’s administration.
However, President Robert Mugabe recently told State media that he was unsure of how Trump would conduct himself on issues affecting Zimbabwe, especially after his predecessor, Barack Obama renewed travel and economic sanctions on the First Family on the eve of his departure.
