Zimbabwe spies on South Africa

Zimbabwe has been spying on South Africa, monitoring communications between President Jacob Zuma, his special foreign policy adviser Lindiwe Zulu and British Prime Minister David Cameron – according to documents leaked to The Zimbabwean, purporting to be minutes of a joint meeting between the Zanu (PF) commissariat and the Joint Operations Command held at Manyame Air Force Base on June 3, 2013.

“Collaborative intelligence shows hostile communication between Mr Zuma, Miss L Zulu and Mr David Cameron through the US Embassy in ZA,” says the document.

It is not clear why Mr Zuma would communicate with the British Prime Minister through the American Embassy, when the British have their own embassy in South Africa.

“Collaborated intelligence show (sic) covert meetings between governments of South Africa, Nigeria and Britain to strategise on how to use SADC to influence politics in Zimbabwe by way of loyalty buying in senior security personnel,” say the minutes.

“Intelligence gathered show (sic) complicity in sharing Cabinet and Government of Zimbabwe secret (sic) by Mr Tsvangirai, Mr W Ncube and Mr T Biti.”
