ZANU-PF tells ANC Boers are still in control


The Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front told South Africa’s ruling African National Congress that it was not in control but the Boers still were. Responding to a statement by ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe that the ANC would not follow the Zimbabwe route because it was disastrous, ZANU-PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo said: “We have our model which we feel is the best in Africa and they have their own because they want to accommodate colonisers. For us, we suffered because of our principle, however things will change in the next few years,” Gumbo said. “They remain under the rule of the Boers, but our suffering is short-term. We have empowered our people and the fruits of empowerment are being seen.” Mantashe had said: “Look at Zimbabwe. It used to be the bread basket of Africa. Today it imports almost everything. The Zimbabwean dollar has disappeared. This economy will disappear if that is the example we want to follow.”
