The African Union (AU) is positive about developments taking place in Zimbabwe and it will continue to support the new political leadership in its various activities.

These sentiments came out after the more than one hour meeting held by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the AU Commission delegation which met with various stakeholders during the day.

The meeting was also attended by Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor Dr John Mangudya, Home Affairs Minister Dr Obert Mpofu, Secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Trade Dr Retired Lieutenant General Sibusiso Moyo and senior government officials.

The AU Commission chairperson Dr Moussa Faki Mahamat also pledged to continue supporting Zimbabwe for the removal of restrictive measures imposed on the country by some western countries as Zimbabwe continues to reengage the international community.

Zimbabwe has been working to address the issues raised by the continental body after the 2013 elections.

The AU Commission chair is expected to address a news conference tomorrow and reveal his sentiments on the visit before departing.
