President Motlante is in Zimbabwe Today where he wil meet with the Southern African Development Community (SADC). The reason for the discussions is to establish a unity government.
That the first step to achieving that is the adoption of amendment 19, which puts into law what was agreed upon in the global agreement that has been gazetted. Foreign Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma says that in order for the meeting to be a success, the parties need to implement the global agreement.
“What South Africa and SADC, at the summit last year, said to the parties that they must implement the global agreement. And we hope that all parties will implement the global agreement,” said Minister Dlamini Zuma.
Dlamini Zuma added that only once a unity government has been established, can Zimbabwe deal with the challenges they are facing.
