Speaking at the Africa Factbook International Stakeholders’ Consultative Conference organised by local publishing company, Book of African Records (BAR), Chiwenga said the government’s thrust was to re-engage with the international community and forge fraternal relationships around the globe.

“Zimbabwe will hold its harmonised elections later this year as pronounced by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and our government is committed to ensure that the elections are free, fair, credible, transparent and peaceful,” he said.

“In this regard, the new dispensation’s mantra is that Zimbabwe is open for business, as our thrust is to re-engage with the entire international community and forge fraternal relationships with all nations around the globe based on the principles of mutual respect and benefit.”

Chiwenga later pledged $1 000 towards the fundraising efforts for the Africa Factbook project, which is meant to pool together useful facts about Africa and its people for purposes of information dissemination, education, reference, statistics and documentation. The project is being implemented by the BAR on the strength of a memorandum of understanding with the African Union Commission.

  2. Unopenga Chiwenga. How can you promise credible elections when you removed President Mugabe unconstitutionally in your military coup ??

  3. We yet to see them walk the talk on free and fair election, no electoral reforms have happened 3 months after pronouncing government will to run a credible election…the mantra is already getting tired like the sanctions mantra the former regime was using eachtime a mic is given to them.

  4. Theyjust shot themselves to power through the gun…and now claim to want to do fair elections? why didnt they just wait for elections and get into power legally? These coup guys are power hungry and will never run fair elections! They have too much to lose. The diprosone commander is just waffling!

  5. Coup ndipo pasina zvapo apa.

  6. Free the airwaves , free Zanu BC tv , retire Reuben Barwe
