South Africa’s International Relations Minister Lindiwe Sisulu said the situation in Zimbabwe is calm.
Sisulu said this on Sunday, in a statement issued by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco). Her comments come at a time when President Mnangagwa’s spokesperson George Charamba said that their response to the protests “is just a foretaste of things to come.” Said Sisulu:
Protests [in our] neighbouring country have calmed down and life in the streets of Zimbabwe is returning to normal. The South African government is working with the Zimbabwean government to find a short and long term solution to the economic situation. If the situation is not attended to, the current economic challenges can derail the political and economic progress Zimbabwe has made since the election of the new President.
