In an exclusive interview with CAJ News on Sunday, Zimbabwe Ambassador to South Africa, Simon Khaya-Moyo, said bilateral relations between Harare and London were possible, but argued that the move would need commitment and respect from both parties.
Â “The problem with the British government is that they still think Zimbabwe is their colony. We are no longer a colony, but a sovereinty state.
Â “Challenges for Zimbabwe today are bilateral matters between Harare and London. Whoever talks about the land issue again is lost because we are not going back.Â We have given our people the land and a few whites have benefitted. We did not seggregate when we distributed the land, that is why the whites benefitted too,” said Khaya-Moyo.
Â He said Britain should move out of its colonial bullish and cease the opportunity of bilateral talks aimed at benefitting both nations.
