Former Foreign Affairs minister Walter Mzembi who declined to disclose his location to Daily News, congratulated President Emmerson Mnangagwa and praised his inauguration speech.
Mzembi is a member of the Generation 40 (G40) faction in Zanu-PF which was regarded as criminals by the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF). Said Mzembi:
Secondly, to congratulate the president for a very stately and unifying speech, which if followed through by works and in deed, will certainly birth an economic and political renaissance in our country, so much in need of healing and atonement across the board. The president’s speech was loaded with change nuggets, which should give hope to our people going forward into the future and these include inter alia; an unequivocal commitment to elections in 2018, a pledge that reinforces our budding democracy, the sancrosanctness of the land reform programme and it’s irreversibly albeit only to those who will not speculate on land but use it productively, the attendant compensation of the dispossessed — a long thorny issue but one on which we can revive old commitments by former colonisers on the matter.
