Regarding UK-Zimbabwe relations, Ambassador Bronnert and Acting President Nkomo discussed the positive impact of the United Kingdom’s support to Zimbabweans ($130 million in 2011-12) which is being channelled through the Department for International Development (DFID) to reach millions of Zimbabweans, particularly women and children.
Ambassador Bronnert expressed the United Kingdom’s commitment to support the aspirations of the Zimbabwean people for a prosperous and democratic Zimbabwe through free and fair elections. Ambassador Bronnert said: “the UK believes it is for Zimbabweans to choose their own government. The UK will work with any of the parties that form a government based on a genuine mandate from the Zimbabwean people, which includes ZANU-PF.”
