Foreign Affairs Minister, Sibusiso Moyo is reportedly pleading with Western diplomats over his threats to USA ambassador to Zimbabwe, Brian Nichols.
Zim Live founder, Mduduzi Mathuthu posted on Twitter saying:
SB Moyo has been pleading his case with western diplomats, says he didn’t write that statement on US ambassador but received it from Emmerson Mnangagwa’s office to read.
Moyo had in a statement threatened to take action against Nichols over alleged violation of diplomats’ code of conduct specified under international law.
Nichols had commented on Zimbabwe’s anti-sanctions march saying that Zimbabwe was barking at the wrong tree since the real cause of the economic demise was corruption in the country.
USA Senate has since backed Nichols saying that his remarks represented the views of the USA on the matter.
