Zimbabwe grateful to SA, says Mujuru

2012-01-12 12:17

Johannesburg - Zimbabwe will always be grateful to South Africa and ANC leadership for fostering peace in the country, vice president Joice Mujuru said in a report on the Zimbabwe Herald website on Thursday.

Speaking after attending the ANC's centenary celebrations in Bloemfontein, Mujuru said Zanu-PF would continue learning from the ANC, particularly on how it used its youth structures to strengthen the party.

She represented President Robert Mugabe at the centenary celebrations last week.

She said Zanu-PF would continue to learn from the ANC on growing the party from its youth structures and working with youth to strengthen the party.

"There is need for the leadership to start building for the future and this should start within our youth league structures. It is a good thing that we build our party for the future generations."

She dismissed reports that relations between the two revolutionary parties were frosty.

"Our relations remain excellent and this is evident with the fact that we were invited to attend the celebrations," she said.

"We are living in peace because of the South African leadership's efforts to bring us together and we are grateful," she said.

      With good reason. Few other governments are so willfully dismissive of public opinion. We continue to support despots.

      @FLOWINGRIVER - So, gumment takes all the farms, farms die off, no production, or certainly not enough to feed the nation. If you don't believe me, go see for yourself. You obviously have no knowledge of what has happened there.

    She forgot to thank us long suffering S.A. taxpayers for giving them free electricity courtesy of our "loveable" Government.

      High John, I d not know which period you are referring to, but as it is now, South Africa(Eskom) is not selling or scheduling power to Zimbabwe (ZESA). That has been the case for AT LEAST 2 years now. Where ZESA requests power (a few hours now and again), Eskom sells to them where there is surplus. They do pay for power sold to them.

    "She said Zanu-PF would continue to learn from the ANC" - oh dear, talk about the village idiot taking lessons from the local nutjob. What a joke.

    They must grow the strongest "herb" in Zim... LOL!

    The ZA incumbent government can support whoever that they want to as long as it is strategically important for the SOUTH AFRICANS. What they should do however, is ensure that only "rare skills" immigrants comes here instead of half the nation of Zimbabwe that currently are a burden to our limited national fiscus (who end up in virtually every restaurant you can go to).

    Substitute ZANU PF for Zimbabwe and that will be true. After all The SA government has been; bankrolling ZANU PF, sustaining power supplies through ESCOM though the utility is owed millions, fighting to ensure they stayed in power after a stolen election and is still suppressing publication of the report, promising that they are waiting to assist ZANU PF in the next elections,been taking the heat off Mugabe by taking in the millions to skim off the restive masses that Mugabe has no plans to provide for under his rule. Yeah, Mujuru and ZANU PF allies have a lot to thank SA for for the opportunities to continue to plunder and misrule because if it were not for them, the people would have won out in Zimbabwe. No so appreciative are the rest of us who pay the price for this blind support.

    Poor racists, no matter your wishes. The Zim land reform is done and its non-revasable history. Zimbabweans are the first to fight for true economic emancipation in Africa, therefore Europe and North-America will try their best to mis-inform the world and continue to sanction and sabotage the Zim economy. The day the Zim economy will be back on track, pple will realise the fall of Zim agricultural production is mainly due to lack of funding, not the of expertise. The problem is that most of african financial institutions are European and American owned and they would promote their masters' agendas. Zimbabweans are a smart pple, and are not afraid to take initiatives. Serving a white master is history in Zim, its going to be history SA too. and accross the region at large. Though still rampand in countries such as South Africa, the age of black enslavement is surely coming to an end and the enslaving white community should recognise that now rather than later, if they are going to preserve what they have already unfairly accumulated.
