Ramaphosa Mediation Sharply Divides ZANU PF

The ruling ZANU PF is reportedly divided over South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s efforts to intervene in the Zimbabwean crisis, with moderates welcoming the move while hardliners will have none of it.

The hardliners, led by presidential spokesperson George Charamba on Tuesday claimed that South Africa was too young a democracy to intervene in Zimbabwe’s internal affairs.

Writing on Twitter, Charamba lampooned South Africa, saying the country had no capacity to help any SADC country, except simply offering solidarity messages.

However, ZANU PF secretary for administration Obert Mpofu said the party welcomes the African National Congress (ANC) delegation, and that it will be free to meet “whoever they want” in Zimbabwe. He said:

We are always collaborating with the ANC on a regular basis and this is really not a new development as indicated by yourselves. We are colleagues so there is nothing new to this kind of collaboration.

On this particular one we have been communicating with the ANC on this and engagement to address issues as we have done before with them, so we are ready for this meeting which is sanctioned by our principals.

On Monday, Ramaphosa announced that he would soon dispatch his special envoys back to Harare to meet all key stakeholders, including the opposition, civic society and the church to resolve the deep-rooted crisis before it engulfs the entire region.

Ramaphosa said the latest diplomatic push would get underway within days, with ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule – who recently issued pointed criticism of Mnangagwa’s regime – leading the delegation.

  1. Is the ANC ambandoning the land issue in fear of disturbing Boers` colonial land human rights, which is the casus belli between Harare and Washington DC? Zimbabweans are not somnolent. We did the correct regaining of our land. No black government in Africa should be used by US to remove ZANU PF elected government because of our land reform , which to the US, was urinating on white race . For US , it is like freed slaves defeacatinng on Trump family rights.

  2. Ace Magashule of the ANC is leading the delegation to Zimbabwe to try and convince ED to be a nice chap – Magashule is probably currently the worst corrupt man in South Africa and who thinks his …t doesnt smell and his stated object in life is to topple Ramaphosa and replace him with Jacob Zuma. Thats what South Africa thinks of Zimbabwe!!!

  3. The anc and zanu are bum chums no effect will come of it if any thing the situation will get worse
    Land has never been the issue it is power ,corruption greed and the European situation is just a tool to arrive there by duping the masses into a racist frenzy
