ZANU PF Accuses The EU Of Interfering With Zimbabwe’s Internal Affairs

ZANU PF, the governing party in Zimbabwe has accused the European Union (EU) of meddling in the Southern African country’s domestic affairs.

The party was responding to a social media post by the EU in Zimbabwe which criticised the arrest of a prominent journalist, Hopewell Chin’ono over “incitement to participate in public violence.”

The EU in Zimbabwe had posted saying:

We are concerned by the arrest of @daddyhope this morning and call for his immediate release. Journalism is not a crime, but a crucial pillar of any democratic society & of the fight against corruption. Journalists and freedom of expression deserve protection.

In response, the ruling party recalled the words of the late former president Robert Mugabe saying that Zimbabwe was a sovereign state. ZANU PF tweeted:

Seeing this @euinzim tweet one would be anxious on whether Zimbabwe is an Independent Republic or a district under @euinzim. Honestly, how does the EU assume role of the Jury to demand the release of a person arrested lawfully? Zim is a Sovereign State & laws of Zim apply here!

Chin’ono was arrested on Monday and observers argue that he is being persecuted for being an anti-corruption crusader.
