OP responds to Zimbabwean media reports

The Office of the President has taken note of, and is concerned about, misleading content which appears in an article published in the Harare Herald newspaper entitled "MDC-T leader lied to us about Zim situation".

In the said article it is claimed that: “Leaders from Zambia, Botswana and Tanzania expressed “embarrassment” at  having “blindly supported Tsvangirai” during the 28th SADC Heads of State Summit in Sandton, Johannesburg, after South Africa’s President Thabo Mbeki,  who is facilitating talks between Zimbabwe’s political parties, gave them a full briefing on what was taking place.”The same article goes on to misleadingly attribute certain sentiments to Botswana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

In the above context, the Office of the President wishes to emphasise that its position, with respect to the political situation in Zimbabwe, has not altered.
