HARARE – President Emmerson Mnangagwa has threatened to deal decisively and ruthlessly with his opponents after winning the support of his South African counterpart Cyril Ramaphosa during a recent meeting with an African National Congress (ANC) task force in Harare.
Mnangagwa, speaking at a Zanu PF meeting in the capital on Saturday, said it was time to crack down on those trying to tarnish his image in Zimbabwe and those in the diaspora.
“Zimbabwe and South Africa have an extradition treaty. I will issue instructions to invoke the agreement and hold accountable those who commit crimes while hiding there,” Mnangagwa threatened.
The President also highlighted the recent visit of South African delegates sent by President Ramaphosa, who said they were not there to investigate the Zanu PF-led government but to deliver a message of solidarity to his ” dictatorship”.
“President Ramaphosa never sends envoys to investigate Zimbabwe. The messengers brought me messages from my friend Ramaphosa. They were never sent to meetings with civil society and other political parties,” boasted Mnangagwa.
