Responding to Ambassador Nichols’ statement, Charamba reportedly said:

While on eNCA, Ambassador Nichols spoke about the issues bedevilling the country like human rights abuses, inflation, drought and food insecurity which further contradicts the narrative the government is trying to sell the international community that there is no crisis in Zimbabwe.

The government has been attacking and or responding to anyone who opposes their narrative that there is no crisis in Zimbabwe. The ruling party in July also threatened to expel the American Ambassador and called him a thug
