ED speaks on new US re-en­gage­ment

The Manica Post - - Comment & Feedback -

THE United States (US) should make de­ci­sions on Zim­babwe from an in­formed po­si­tion and stop read­ing only the text of op­po­si­tion po­lit­i­cal par­ties that are afraid of elec­tions, the Pres­i­dent has said.

He said the US, which last week pro­posed mul­ti­ple pre­scrip­tive re­forms as a pre­con­di­tion for re-en­gage­ment with Zim­babwe, should have an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the sit­u­a­tion on the ground to make ra­tio­nal de­ci­sions. Two US sen­a­tors — Messrs Jeff Flake(Repub­li­can) and Chris Coons (Demo­crat) — who are mem­bers of the US Se­nate For­eign Re­la­tions Com­mit­tee, un­veiled a pro­posed re­vised ver­sion of the Zim­babwe Democ­racy and Eco­nomic Re­cov­ery Act (ZDERA) of 2001. They pro­posed con­di­tions sim­i­lar to de­mands made by the MDC Al­liance through its Plan and En­vi­ron­ment for A Cred­i­ble Elec­tion (PEACE) doc­u­ments launched by its pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Mr Nel­son Chamisa last week.
