Mugabe tells Kabila to accept Masire


0

President Robert Mugabe’s point man in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Emmerson Mnangagwa, told United States special envoy Howard Wolpe that Mugabe had told Kabila to accept Ketumile Masire as mediator because his objections did not constitute sufficient grounds for removing Masire.

Mugabe told Kabila that he was creating a perception that he was moving against the Lusaka Accord that was supposed to bring peace to the DRC.

Kabila said he respect ted the Lusaka Accord but he and his cabinet could not accept Masire as the facilitator.

1. (C) SUMMARY: IN A JULY 17 MEETING WITH EMMERSON

MNANGAGWA, MUGABE’S CONFIDANTE IN CHARGE OF SENSITIVE

MISSIONS RELATING TO THE CONGO, GREAT LAKES SPECIAL

ENVOY HOWARD WOLPE EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT DRC PRESIDENT

KABILA’S PUSH FOR THE REMOVAL OF SIR KETUMILE MASIRE AS

FACILITATOR IN THE CONGOLESE CONFLICT. MNANGAGWA

INDICATED THAT PRESIDENT MUGABE BELIEVES KABILA IS

INTRACTABLE ON THE ISSUE. HOWEVER, HE ACCEPTED WOLPE’S

ARGUMENT THAT KABILA’S OBJECTIONS TO MASIRE ARE A FIG

LEAF FOR HIS DESIRE TO SEE THE INTER-CONGOLESE DIALOGUE

FAIL, AND APPEARED TO AGREE WITH WOLPE’S POINT THAT THE

REMOVAL OF MASIRE WOULD KILL THE LUSAKA PROCESS.

MNANGAGWA TOLD WOLPE THAT THE GOZ IS AS COMMITTED AS

EVER TO A WITHDRAWAL FROM THE DRC. DESPITE THE GOZ’S

OFFICIAL POSITION THAT ZIMBABWEAN TROOPS WILL RETREAT

WHEN SECURITY CONDITIONS PERMIT, HE SAID, THEIR “REAL”

POSITION IS THAT THEY WILL PULL OUT AS SOON AS MONUC IS

DEPLOYED. END SUMMARY.

 

2. (C) GREAT LAKES SPECIAL ENVOY HOWARD WOLPE MET JULY

17 WITH EMMERSON MNANGAGWA, A CLOSE CONFIDANTE OF

PRESIDENT MUGABE WHO HAD JUST COMPLETED HIS TENURE AS

MINISTER OF JUSTICE AND WAS SLATED TO BECOME SPEAKER OF

THE PARLIAMENT THE FOLLOWING DAY. MNANGAGWA IS WELL-

BRIEFED ON ISSUES PERTAINING TO THE CONGO AS MUGABE USES

HIM TO CONDUCT SENSITIVE MISSIONS THERE. WOLPE WAS

ACCOMPANIED BY SPECIAL ADVISOR TO A/S RICE PRENDERGAST

AND POLOFF. MNANGAGWA TOLD WOLPE THAT HE HAD NOT BEEN

PRESENT AT THE PREVIOUS WEEK’S MEETING BETWEEN PRESIDENT

MUGABE AND PRESIDENT KABILA IN LUBUMBASHI, BUT HE

CONFIDENTIAL

 

PAGE 03       HARARE 04062 01 OF 03 241524Z

UNDERSTOOD THAT THEY HAD DISCUSSED TWO MAIN ISSUES:

MASIRE’S TENURE AS FACILITATOR AND THE DEPLOYMENT OF UN

TROOPS.

 

SHORING UP SUPPORT FOR MASIRE

—————————–

 

3. (C) WITH REGARD TO MASIRE, MNANGAGWA TOLD WOLPE

KABILA HAD APPEARED INTRACTABLE AT LUBUMBASHI IN HIS

OBJECTIONS TO MASIRE’S CONTINUED ROLE AS NATIONAL

DIALOGUE FACILITATOR AND HAD PRESSED FOR THE OAU TO

APPOINT ANOTHER FACILITATOR. MUGABE, MNANGAGWA

CONTINUED, HAD WARNED KABILA DURING THE JUNE 25 MINI-

SUMMIT IN HARARE THAT HIS OBJECTIONS TO MASIRE DID NOT

CONSTITUTE SUFFICIENT GROUNDS FOR REMOVING HIM. BY

PRESSING FOR MASIRE’S REMOVAL, MUGABE TOLD KABILA, HE

WAS CREATING A PERCEPTION THAT HE WAS MOVING AGAINST THE

LUSAKA ACCORDS. KABILA RESPONDED TO MUGABE THAT HE

STILL RESPECTED AND HONORED THE LUSAKA ACCORD, BUT HIS

POSITION, SUPPORTED BY HIS CABINET, IS THAT MASIRE

CANNOT CONTINUE AS FACILITATOR. MUGABE HIMSELF,

MNANGAGWA TOLD WOLPE, HAS FOUND NO FAULT WITH THE WAY

MASIRE HAS HANDLED HIS DUTIES.

 

4. (C) WOLPE TOLD MNANGAGWA THAT, WHILE NO ONE CLAIMED

MASIRE HAD CARRIED OUT HIS DIFFICULT JOB FLAWLESSLY,

MANY OF KABILA’S ALLEGATIONS ABOUT MASIRE — FOR

EXAMPLE, THAT HE HAD NEGLECTED TO MEET WITH KABILA WHILE

IN THE CONGO — WERE FACTUALLY INCORRECT. NOTHING COULD

BE MORE DAMAGING TO THE REGION, HE STATED, THAN

ACQUIESCING TO KABILA’S REJECTION OF MASIRE, BECAUSE

CONFIDENTIAL

 

PAGE 04       HARARE 04062 01 OF 03 241524Z

“YOU KNOW AND I KNOW THAT THE REAL ISSUE FOR KABILA IS

NOT MASIRE.” RATHER, IT IS HIS NERVOUSNESS ABOUT THE

INTER-CONGOLESE DIALOGUE. ACQUIESCING TO KABILA ON

MASIRE WOULD SEND A SIGNAL TO THE CONGOLESE THAT LUSAKA

IS DEAD. NO PARTY HAS BEEN CLEARER THAN THE

ZIMBABWEANS, WOLPE NOTED, IN DESIRING THE FULL

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LUSAKA ACCORDS. WOLPE TOLD

MNANGAGWA THAT HE WAS PLEASED TO HEAR THAT MUGABE HAD

DISCUSSED MASIRE’S ROLE WITH KABILA, AND ASKED THAT

MNANGAGWA CONVEY TO MUGABE THE US VIEW THAT THE SURVIVAL

OF THE LUSAKA PROCESS DEPENDS ON RETAINING MASIRE.

MNANGAGWA PLEDGED TO DO SO.

 

5. (C) WOLPE THEN EXPRESSED HIS CONCERN ABOUT A REPORT

THAT NAMIBIAN PRESIDENT SAM NUJOMA HAD MET WITH SEVERAL

INFLUENTIAL MEMBERS OF THE U.S. CONGRESS AND TOLD THEM

THAT MASIRE NO LONGER HAS THE SUPPORT OF KABILA’S

SOUTHERN ALLIES. NUJOMA’S COMMENTS, IF ACCURATELY

REPORTED, COULD HARDEN ALREADY SKEPTICAL MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS AGAINST THE MONUC OPERATION. WHY PAY FOR

PEACEKEEPING, THEY ARE LIKELY TO ASK, WHEN THE POLITICAL

ALTERNATIVE TO ARMED CONFLICT IS NO LONGER VIABLE? ON

THE OTHER HAND, WOLPE NOTED, THE OAU COUNCIL OF

MINISTERS RECENTLY ISSUED A STATEMENT TAKING A STRONG

STANCE THAT MASIRE SHOULD REMAIN AS FACILITATOR AND THAT

CONFIDENTIAL

 

PAGE 02       HARARE 04062 02 OF 03 241524Z

THE LUSAKA SIGNATORIES SHOULD COOPERATE WITH HIM.

MNANGAGWA, WHO RECENTLY RETURNED FROM A PRIVATE TRIP TO

ENGLAND, SAID THAT HE HAD NOT BEEN AWARE OF THE OAU

STATEMENT.

 

6. (C) WOLPE SUGGESTED THAT IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO

PRESERVE MASIRE’S ROLE BY IMPLEMENTING FACE-SAVING

MEASURES. HE NOTED THAT MASIRE HAS TWO BASIC PROBLEMS

REGARDING THE CONGO: HE DOES NOT KNOW THE CONGO WELL AND

HE DOES NOT SPEAK FRENCH. SEVERAL PROMINENT FRENCH

SPEAKERS, WOLPE TOLD MNANGAGWA, HAVE OFFERED TO MAKE

THEMSELVES AVAILABLE TO ASSIST MASIRE. WOLPE TOLD

MNANGAGWA THAT HE WOULD BE PRESSING FOR ACCEPTANCE OF

THIS “MASIRE-PLUS” IDEA DURING HIS OTHER TRAVEL IN THE

REGION. ONCE A CONSENSUS IS IN PLACE, THERE CAN BE A

MULTILATERAL EFFORT TO PUSH THE IDEA WITH KABILA.

MNANGAGWA EXPRESSED THE VIEW THAT KABILA WILL ONLY

SOFTEN ON HIS OPPOSITION TO MASIRE IF ANGOLA, NAMIBIA,

AND ZIMBABWE TAKE A UNITED STAND. IF THERE IS ANY SIGN

OF WEAKNESS, HE WILL REMAIN OBDURATE. WOLPE AGREED, AND

ASKED MNANGAGWA WHETHER HE BELIEVED THE GOZ WOULD

SUPPORT THE “MASIRE-PLUS” APPROACH. MNANGAGWA DID NOT

REPLY DIRECTLY, BUT REPEATED THAT MUGABE HAD “FOUND NO

FAULT” WITH MASIRE’S PERFORMANCE.

 

COMPLIANCE WITH LUSAKA

———————-

 

7. (C) WOLPE EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT KABILA’S DECISION

TO UNILATERALLY APPOINT A CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY, AND

RECALLED THAT MUGABE HAD SAID SEVERAL MONTHS AGO THAT HE

CONFIDENTIAL

 

PAGE 03       HARARE 04062 02 OF 03 241524Z

BELIEVED HE HAD PERSUADED KABILA AGAINST TAKING SUCH A

STEP. MNANGAGWA CONCURRED THAT MUGABE HAD ADVISED

KABILA AGAINST APPOINTING THE ASSEMBLY, WHICH HE WARNED

WOULD BE SEEN AS A PREEMPTION OF THE LUSAKA PROCESS.

KABILA HAD REPLIED THAT HE WOULD GO BACK TO THE CABINET

ON THE ISSUE. LATER, MNANGAGWA CONTINUED, THE CONGOLESE

MINISTER OF JUSTICE HAD PHONED MNANGAGWA FROM KINSHASA

AND SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAD DECIDED THAT IT WOULD

PROCEED WITH THE CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY, BUT THE JUSTICE

MINISTER RATHER THAN THE PRESIDENT WOULD CONVENE IT.

MNANGAGWA HAD REPLIED TO THE MINISTER THAT THE CONGO IS

A SOVEREIGN STATE BUT THIS WAS NOT A GOOD MOVE

DIPLOMATICALLY. WOLPE NOTED THAT THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF

THE ASSEMBLY HAD HAD VERY NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES FOR THE

PEACE PROCESS.

 

CONTINUED FIGHTING IN CONGO

—————————

 

8. (C) WOLPE NOTED THAT KABILA’S INTRANSIGENCE ON

MASIRE AND OTHER ISSUES IS CREATING PROBLEMS WITH

CONGOLESE REBEL GROUPS. FOR EXAMPLE, MLC LEADER JEAN

PIERRE BEMBA RECENTLY RESPONDED TO WARNINGS NOT TO MOVE

ON MBANDAKA BY POINTING TO KABILA’S OFFENSIVE IN

EQUATEUR AND HIS RESISTANCE TO MASIRE. BEMBA HAS ASKED

HOW LONG HE SHOULD BE EXPECTED TO HOLD BACK. WOLPE TOLD

MNANGAGWA THAT HE, AMBASSADOR HOLBROOKE, AND SOUTH

AFRICAN FOREIGN MINISTER ZUMA HAVE POINTEDLY TOLD BEMBA

TO LIMIT HIMSELF TO DEFENDING TERRITORY THAT HE

CURRENTLY HOLDS RATHER THAN ADVANCING.

 

CONFIDENTIAL

 

PAGE 04       HARARE 04062 02 OF 03 241524Z

MONUC DEPLOYMENT

—————-

 

9. (C) WOLPE TOLD MNANGAGWA THAT THE USG IS PUSHING

THE UN TO GET READY FOR THE DEPLOYMENT OF MONUC, SUBJECT

TO THE FULFILLMENT OF SECURITY AND ACCESS CONDITIONS.

MNANGAGWA SAID THAT THE GOZ HAS STRESSED TO KABILA THE

NEED TO MAINTAIN AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE THERE IS NO REASON

TO DELAY THE DEPLOYMENT OF UN TROOPS. IF THERE ARE ANY

VIOLATIONS, THE GOZ HAS WARNED KABILA, THEY MUST BE FROM

THE OTHER SIDE. ONCE MONUC HAS ARRIVED AND FOREIGN

TROOPS HAVE WITHDRAWN, MNANGAGWA CONTINUED, THE GOZ

BELIEVES THAT THERE IS NO MORE SECURITY THREAT. WITHOUT

UGANDA’S BACKING, BEMBA AND OTHER REBEL LEADERS WILL BE

POWERLESS. WOLPE AGREED, NOTING THAT THE EXTERNAL

SIGNATORIES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MUCH MORE EAGER TO GET A UN

PRESENCE ESTABLISHED THAN HAS KABILA. MNANGAGWA

COMMENTED THAT KABILA BELIEVES, INCORRECTLY, THAT HE

BENEFITS FROM THE PRESENCE OF FOREIGN TROOPS.

 

10. (C) WOLPE NOTED THAT, IRONICALLY, KISANGANI MAY BE

THE FIRST PLACE WHERE IT IS POSSIBLE FOR MONUC TO

DEPLOY. HE SAID THERE WAS SOME CONSIDERATION BEING

NONCOMMITTAL ON THIS IDEA.

 

CONDITIONS FOR WITHDRAWAL

————————-

 

11. (C) WOLPE ASKED MNANGAGWA IF HE WAS CORRECT IN

ASSUMING THAT ZIMBABWE IS AS COMMITTED AS EVER TO A

WITHDRAWAL. MNANGAGWA SAID THAT THIS IS TRUE. “ONCE UN

TROOPS ARE IN THE DRC, WE HAVE NO JUSTIFICATION TO

REMAIN UNLESS ASKED BY THE UN,” HE SAID. MNANGAGWA

NOTED THAT THE OFFICIAL GOZ POSITION IS THAT ITS TROOPS

WILL WITHDRAW ONCE IT IS SATISFIED THAT THE CONDITIONS

FOR SECURITY IN THE CONGO ARE IN PLACE. HOWEVER, THE

GOZ’S “REAL POSITION” IS THAT IT WILL WITHDRAW ONCE THE

UN PEACEKEEPING TROOPS HAVE BEEN DEPLOYED. (COMMENT:

HE DID NOT SPECIFY TO WHICH PHASE OF THE MONUC

DEPLOYMENT HE WAS REFERRING. END COMMENT.) THE GOZ

CANNOT SAY THIS PUBLICLY, HE CONTINUED, BECAUSE KABILA

MIGHT THEN CREATE NEW OBSTACLES TO MONUC DEPLOYMENT.

WOLPE ASKED WHETHER, IN THE SHORT TERM, THE GOZ WOULD BE

AMENABLE TO NEGOTIATING A PARTIAL WITHDRAWAL. MNANGAGWA

REPLIED AFFIRMATIVELY. WOLPE REPLIED THAT THE GOZ’S

RECEPTIVITY TO THIS POSSIBILITY WAS HELPFUL.

 

12. (C) WOLPE OUTLINED THE USG NON-PAPER ON

DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION, RESETTLEMENT, AND

REINTEGRATION (DDRR). WOLPE TOLD MNANGAGWA THAT HE IS

CURRENTLY SEEKING COMMENTS ON THE PROPOSAL FROM THE

EXTERNAL SIGNATORIES. HE ASKED WHETHER THERE HAD BEEN

ANY PROGRESS ON THE ISSUE OF VOLUNTARY DISARMAMENT AND

CONFIDENTIAL

 

PAGE 03       HARARE 04062 03 OF 03 241525Z

DEMOBILIZATION. MNANGAGWA RESPONDED THAT THE GOZ HAD

BACKED OFF OF THIS ENTIRE ISSUE AFTER KABILA REPLIED

NEGATIVELY AND “WE BURNED OUR FINGERS.” WOLPE NOTED

THAT THE ISSUE HAD BEEN RESURRECTED AT VICTORIA FALLS,

AND ASKED IF THERE HAD BEEN ANY MOVEMENT. MNANGAGWA

SAID THAT THERE HAD NOT. PRENDERGAST SAID PART OF THEIR

MISSION IS TO CONSULT THE SIGNATORIES ON THE FEASIBILITY

OF A TECHNICAL MISSION TO ASSESS THE CONDITIONS AND

RESOURCES NECESSARY FOR VOLUNTARY DEMOBILIZATION OF THE

NON-STATE ACTORS. THE USG HAS PRESENTED THE NON-PAPER

TO THE OTHER SIGNATORIES AND WILL CONTINUE TO PRESS FOR

PROGRESS ON THE ISSUE. MNANGAGWA INDICATED HIS SUPPORT

FOR THE IDEAS, BUT SAID ZIMBABWE WOULD BE VERY CAREFUL

ON THIS ISSUE BECAUSE OF ITS PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH

KABILA.

 

13. (C) AS THE MEETING CONCLUDED, MNANGAGWA SAID THAT

PROGRESS TOWARD A WITHDRAWAL IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT

TO THE GOZ NOW, BECAUSE THERE IS A NEW GOVERNMENT AND

“WE DO NOT WANT IT BURDENED BY THE (PROBLEMS OF THE)

PAST ONE.”

 

COMMENT

——-

 

14. (C) MNANGAGWA MADE A NUMBER OF POINTS THAT REVEALED

WHERE THE GOZ MAY BE ON CERTAIN KEY ISSUES. 1) ZIMBABWE

REMAINS COMMITTED TO THE FASTEST POSSIBLE IMPLEMENTATION

OF THE LUSAKA PEACE PROCESS; 2) SIGNIFICANT WITHDRAWALS

ARE IN THE GOZ’S POLITICAL INTEREST, ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT

KNOWN IF THE GOZ WILL SEEK TO RETAIN A RESIDUAL FORCE TO

CONFIDENTIAL

 

PAGE 04       HARARE 04062 03 OF 03 241525Z

PROTECT CORE ECONOMIC INTERESTS; 3) THE GOZ MAINTAINS A

DIVERGENCE BETWEEN ITS PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LINES ON ITS

POSTURE IN CONGO BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT KABILA TO

BELIEVE THAT MONUC DEPLOYMENT WILL LEAD TO THE GOZ’S

WITHDRAWAL; 4) THE SIGNATORIES MUST NOT ACQUIESCE TO

KABILA’S EFFORT TO OUST MASIRE. BUT THE GOZ SEEKS TO

CLARIFY THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF THE FACILITATION, TO

GIVE THE SIGNATORIES MORE LEVERAGE WITH BOTH KABILA AND

MASIRE.
