The United States through the United States Embassy has released a statement regarding the prevailing political situation in Zimbabwe.
The United States said that it is monitoring the political situation in the country and will not choose a side in the matter regarding President Robert Mugabe and former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa. The press statement released by the United States Embassy reads:
This week Zimbabweans were inundated with false social media reports regarding the Embassy following political developments in Zimbabwe. We are following the developments taking place in all sectors closely and will continue to monitor the situation. The recent developments in the government of Zimbabwe are a matter of internal party politics, in which the U.S. Government does not take sides. We encourage all parties to follow democratic, transparent and peaceful processes, both in internal party matters and in general elections.
