Well I was pleased to hear that President Mnangagwa had said that he was setting up a commission into the violence that we have seen taking place recently. I think that is an important step for Zimbabwe. I know President Ramaphosa was at the inauguration in Zimbabwe only earlier this week. I think there is a real opportunity for Zimbabwe now and I look forward to Zimbabwe being able to grasp that opportunity for the future.
When asked if she was endorsing Mnangagwa’s presidency May said:
The president is an elected president. He is making an important step in saying that he setup a commission of inquiry into what has happened in relation to the violence. I think that is a very important signal from him about the Zimbabwe he wants to see for the future and a Zimbabwe that is taking the opportunities for its people for the future.
