UK Tells ED To Honour His Campaign Promises

The United Kingdom has called on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to deliver on “genuine” political reforms that he committed to do in order to ensure a brighter future for the troubled country.
The UK’s newly-elected Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, also pleaded with Mnangagwa to implement recommendations by the Motlanthe Commission, which was set up after soldiers shot and killed demonstrators in 2018.
According to the statement by the UK released through their embassy in Harare, they urged the Mnangagwa to also deliver on the economic reforms.
“A year after Zimbabwe’s elections, we reiterate our call to the government of President Emmerson Mnangagwa to work on delivering the genuine political reforms that it has committed to alongside the economic reforms needed to pave the way to a better future for all Zimbabweans,” read the statement.
This comes at a time when Mnangagwa’s administration is seeking to mend relations with the country’s former coloniser.
