Acting President Kembo Mohadi says it is a matter of time before nations that are hostile to Zimbabwe realise that they are wrong and unfair to the Southern African country.
Speaking after meeting the outgoing UN Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Bishow Parajuli in Harare this morning, Cde Mohadi said it is unfortunate that some western countries have tended to believe their own lies about Zimbabwe, adding that the country will remain resilient in the face of such hostility.
“They are members of the UN…but they have been demonizing us and they have ended up believing their lies about Zimbabwe, which is not true. But those who come to Zimbabwe and see things for themselves, have found out that the situation is different…So we are okay with ourselves, they [west] will come to realise it, we are a resilient nation, we will find our way, we will get there, with or without them and they will join the bandwagon,” said Cde Mohadi.
His comments come as the European Union (EU) and its allies led by the United States have cricitised the Zimbabwean government for alleged disregard of the rule of law.
However, Cde Mohadi said just like in a family, there are always those members who want to bully others.
On Zimbabwe’s relations with the UN, Cde Mohadi said the country is happy to be a member of the international body and is grateful of the humanitarian support it received during the Cyclone Idai disaster.
