ZANU PF PRESS STATEMENT ON THE VISITING AFRICAN NATIONAL CONGRESS (ANC) DELEGATION
ZANU PF is expecting the African National Congress (ANC) delegation to arrive in the country today for an engagement with the ZANU PF delegation tomorrow to discuss issues of mutual interest.
The ANC delegation will meet ZANU PF delegation led by the Secretary for A ministration Dr O. M. Mpofu as part of Party to Party engagements. We are also aware that this visit is taking place against the backdrop, of false claims of a nation in crisis. Zanu PF will take the oppotunity to the reality on the ground in Zimbabwe, South Africa and in the region candidly and frankly with their revolutionary sister the ANC.
Following inquiries from various quarters and our friends from the media in particular the purpose of this meeting, ZANU FP wishes to make it categoncal clear that this is a meeting between the ZANU PF delegation an the NC delegation only
