ZANU PF national chairperson, Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri revealed that the ruling party is concerned over possible chaos and the breakdown of order in Zimbabwe as happened in Venezuela and Libya.
Muchinguri-Kashiri was in China, leading a ZANUPF delegation in meetings with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) last week.
Speaking to (CCP) officials in the Chinese capital, Beijing, Muchinguri-Kashiri said:
We are really under siege. After what has happened in Venezuela … Libya … we remain cautious because we continue to be under serious bashing, even on social media.
They (opposition) still maintain their agenda of wanting to unseat a democratically-elected government. The opposition continues working very closely with 35 000 NGOs (non-governmental organisations) which are being funded fully by America … Britain and the EU (European Union).
Whatever efforts … the government tries to put in place for economic recovery programmes, the NGOs are going behind our back to fund our own communities, giving them US dollars to fight the government’s social and economic programmes.
They make people feel that it is the NGOs that have better solutions than the government.
She went on to laud the excellent relationship between China and Zimbabwe which started during the days of the liberation struggle and have continued in the post-independence era.
