South Africa and Zimbabwe turn a blind eye

Dear Editor

I am deeply pained by the situation in Zimbabwe, Mnangagwa should be more concerned about the welfare of his people and country, Ringisai Chikohomero ("South Africa's Zimbabwe Dilemma"' April 18).

I agree that the "sanction must fall" mantra is blanket that is being used to cover a lot of Human rights abuses.

Mnangagwa failed to even utter a word to address the xenophobic attacks on Zimbabweans in South Africa which where propagated by a message his dear friend Cyril Ramaphosa uttered. Zimbabwe can only progress if there are serious political reforms and respect for human rights.

If this does not happen, I am afraid Zimbabwe will be dragged down by Mnangagwa and his government. We need the international community, human rights groups and the SADC to help Zimbabwe to reform politically.

Kind Regards,

Sipho Ndlovu
