The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Retired Lieutenant General Sibusiso Moyo says Zimbabwe has invited 64 organisations, countries and individuals to observe the forthcoming harmonised elections in line with President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s promise of free, fair and credible elections.
In an interview with the ZBC News, Minister Moyo said Zimbabwe is walking the talk and it has nothing to hide in its electoral processes, adding that democracy is at work in the country.
“We have invited 64 organisations, countries and individuals to observe this election. Far from the SADC region and the AU, we have gone as far as inviting even those from the Americas and Europe. We have covered the whole world in terms of our invitations,” he said.
The Minister also revealed that some teams are already on the ground doing pre-observation preliminaries with SADC and African Union (AU) teams having visited the country earlier.
The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) pre-observation team arrived in Harare this evening and is expected to meet Minister Moyo tomorrow morning.
Zimbabwe is gearing up for the crucial harmonised elections which will determine a lot for Zimbabwe and the new political dispensation and its vision to rebuild Zimbabwe’s economy.
