The Walter Mzembi Wikileaks cables


Walter Mzembi considered himself one of the reformers in the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front. He came on with a lot of verve and believed that the party needed a new generation of younger leaders. He was even willing to work with the Movement for Democratic Change when the three key political parties signed the Global Political Agreement. But the enthusiasm now seems to be gone. He has been “eaten” up by the system. There are  24 Wikileaks cables on him. Here they are.
