SOUTH Africa shouldn’t get involved in Zimbabwe’s affairs less it’s asked to, says International Relations Minister during an interview with eNCA in response to calls by Zimbabwean activists for South Africa to pressure Presiden Robert Mugabe’s government arguing that President Mugabe was lawfully re-elected in 2013. She says the only way Zimbabweans can effect change is through voting.“It’s going to take Zimbabweans to do what they think is good for themselves through the polls, because in SADC webelieve in democracy,” she said.
Meanwhile Zimbabweans in Port Elizabeth are planning a march under the #Tajamuka movement on the 20th, insolidarity with their those in Zimbabwe, to protest against bond notes, police brutality, the ban on imports . They are also calling on Mugabe to resign.
Nkoana-Mashabane also defended SADC’s decision to allow Africa’s last
absolute monarch, King Mswati the third, tochair the regional body. – eNCA additional reporting Patience Rusere
