South Africa To Help Zim With Whatever Kind Of Support It Can Afford – SA Foreign Minister

The South African Minister For International Relations Lindiwe Sisulu said her government will assist Zimbabwe with whatever kind of support that it can afford.

Sisulu said this on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland on Tuesday. She said:

We think that Zimbabwe is in an unfortunate position where large sections of the people are unhappy and expressing their unhappiness very publicly in the streets.

We would like to give whatever support we can to the government of Zimbabwe to make sure they can provide stability and calm the public in the most peaceful way possible.

We are also prepared to support them in whatever way we can. I’m not sure if it will be financially, or whatever kind of aid we can provide. Our support will, of course, depend on our ability to provide them with whatever kind of support… it will not necessarily be what they need, but what we can afford.

Reports indicate that South Africa turned down a request from Zimbabwe for a $1.2 billion (about R16.6bn) loan in December. South Africa is Zimbabwe’s biggest trading partner.
