ED Hopes Boris Johnson Assists Zimbabwe In Rejoining The Commonwealth

President Emmerson Mnangagwa wrote an official congratulation letter to the newly-appointed Prime Minister of Great Britain, Boris Johnson.

Johnson was on Wednesday invited by Queen Elizabeth to Buckingham Palace to form a government following the formal resignation of Theresa May over Brexit.

He defeated his successor as Foreign Minister, Jeremy Hunt whom he reportedly offered the Defence portfolio which the latter declined.

In his congratulatory message, President Mnangagwa said:

Allow me to, first of all, extend my very sincere personal congratulations, as well as those of my Administration, on your election as leader of the Conservative Party and, thence, your appointment to the Office of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

I wish you every success in your endeavour as you take on this immensely challenging task and lead the United Kingdom into a future filled with promise and potential.

I look forward to meeting you in person shortly, and to working with you and your administration as, together, we strive to return our once-formidable bilateral relationship to its rightful level, distancing ourselves from past differences and focusing instead on the future.

A key component of those reforms is re-engagement with all those nations from which we have become somewhat estranged over the past two decades or so.

Rebuilding our relations with the United Kingdom lies at the very core of that re-engagement process and is an objective to which I and my Administration are fully committed.

We are, of course, equally committed to early readmission to the Commonwealth family of nations, a process which is already underway. In this regard, Honourable Prime Minister, I know I can count on your continued support.

In expressing, once again, my heartfelt congratulations to you, Honourable Prime Minister allow me to end by asking you to accept, as well, the assurances of my highest and most respectful consideration.

Brexit, which stands for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northen Ireland’s withdrawal from the European Union (EU), has so far cost the careers of two Prime Ministers, David Cameron who called for the Brexit referendum in 2016 and lost, and Thresa May who failed to convince her party to support her agreement with the EU.

Analysts believe that Johnson’s tenure will be shortlived if he fails to deliver a proper Brexit.

  1. For how long(African countries) are we gonna be beggars? Even if Zim joins commonwealth countries as long as there is mismanagement nothing will change.Are we surrendering to them that we have failed?

  2. The fundamental rules have not changed. No change in behaviour no engagement!!! The Conservative Party is still the same. So why expect sudden change!! So what has changed? Does Boris change all principles single-handed like in dictatorship. If he takes the normal democratic route nothing will come of these cosmetic meetings with people who do not intend to reform the nation.

  3. Mnangagwa is teaching ass-licking and dependency. that’s what makes him less appealing than Mugabe. the old man had whipped it into our skulls that we were on our own and we had to sink on swim bt the croc keeps on saying ” hold on! the Brits has a raft”.
