Patrick Chinamasa, who according to the Sunday Mail, was sent to update SADC leaders of the situation in Zimbabwe by President Mnangagwa, said the SADC chair was satisfied with the explanation of the Shutdown Zimbabwe protests and response by government that he provided.
Chinamasa met President of Namibia Hage Geingob (current SADC chair) and President of Botswana, Masisi (SADC secretariat)
I delivered the message, a special message from his Excellency the President, to which special message was attached a detailed report on the concerns raised by the Government of Zimbabwe and Zanu-PF, especially that the events of the 14, 15 and 16 of January were unique in the sense that for the first time we find foreign agents and foreign intelligence services assisting the demonstrators, not remotely, but physically, and that is basically a very worrisome development, against which we have to be prepared in case this attempt is again made in the future
The messages were well taken. President (Hage) Geingob (the SADC chair) said he was satisfied with the explanation, so did President Masisi. They also indicated that they have been following the events; they cannot understand why the opposition is not abiding by the law. They took their matter to court and lost and it is for them to abide by the law and not to continue to challenge the legitimacy of the elections when in fact the court has ruled over the matter
