Germany says the European Union should stop interfering in Zimbabweâ€™s internal affairs by advocating for security sector reforms, but should instead give GPA parties a chance to resolve and shape the countryâ€™s future ahead of the general elections set for next year.
The Germany ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr. Hans Gnodtke made the remarks responding to Vice President Mujuru who had told him that the EU Council should stop interfering in Zimbabweâ€™s internal affairs.Ambassador Gnondtke who had paid a courtesy call on Vice President Mujuru at her Munhumutapa offices however appealed to fellow members of the EU to desist from calling for security sector reforms in Zimbabwe which is an act of interference.
â€œThis is basically something that the actors here will have to decide in order to get a smooth reform process going and we stand ready to assist,â€ said Mr Gnodtke.
The EU has imposed illegal sanctions on Zimbabwe, a development that has caused untold suffering to ordinary people.
Cde Mujuru also met with UNDP Resident Coordinator, Mr. Alain Noudehou and discussed issues pertaining to how Zimbabwe can attain the Millennium Development Goals.
â€œThe government of Zimbabwe just launched the MTP which is the plan that will carry government action going forward over the next four years. The Vice President was basically clear that this is where we need to concentrate our efforts on,â€ said Mr Noudehou.
The British ambassador to Zimbabwe, Deborah Bronnert, also paid a courtesy call on the Vice President and she once again continued the old British song of regime change coated in the gospel of free and fair elections in Zimbabwe.
â€œWe do review the position of the restrictive measuresâ€¦â€¦they were looked at in February this year. We will continue to review them as concrete progress is made,â€ said Ms Deborah Bronnert.
The British ambassadorâ€™s sentiments confirm what many local analysts have always said that London is not sincere in dealing with Zimbabwe but is obsessed with the regime change agenda.
