My biggest surprise, is that you are suprised by this.

I've said it many times, and I think it is the truth... OUR COUNTRY IS RUN BY THE MAFIA....

Gangsters Paradise indeed.

I think the MDC should appeal to the AU and falling that the UN, as South Africa has clearly decreed it is not a neutral mediator in the Zimbabwe issue.

Considering how many Zimbabweans have fled to our shores, resulting in less local jobs and xenophobia you would think Mantashe would be bright enough to realise the devastating effects ZANU-PF is having on South Africa!

I heard this on the news this morning, and initially thought it was a joke. Are these guys stupid or bloody stupid? :mad:

Bulawayo – ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe yesterday pledged the ANC’s support to Zanu-PF for the national elections in Zimbabwe, expected to take place next year.

At the opening of the Zanu-PF’s yearly national conference, Mantashe said the two parties have a common history that cannot be wished away.

“We belong together, we don’t have the luxury of thinking that we don’t,” Mantashe told the conference, which drew thousands of Zanu-PF delegates from across the country.

Zanu-PF and the ANC form part of the frontline states, which pride themselves as being ruled by former liberation movements.

“Our relationship is steeped in blood, the ANC wishes to affirm her commitment as a trust-worthy neighbour,” Mantashe said.

He pledged support for Zanu-PF for the elections, saying it is payback for the support Zanu-PF gave the ANC “when we needed it most”.

“The ANC will wait for Zanu-PF to come to us for advice about elections. Our teams stand ready to share experiences. You must do it now so that there is still time to change things before the elections,” Mantashe said, referring to the ANC’s recent election campaign for the municipal polls in May this year.

“It is important for us that Zanu-PF regains the lost ground and again represent the interests and aspirations of all Zimbabweans. We must fight the imperialist project because if it succeeds here, we are all in trouble.”

Mantashe also urged Zanu-PF to continue talking to “those who don’t agree with us”, referring to the MDC.South Africa is the mediator in the years-long conflict between Zanu-PF and the MDC.

When asked by City Press whether the ANC’s support for Zanu-PF does not complicate that process, Mantashe insisted the two processes are separate.

“That is government. We are liberation movements. The government was appointed by SADC to mediate, and we are liberation movements that have a history,” he said.

Why are people surprised??

This is just like how USA supports whatever the Israelis do to the Palestine or any other innocent people.

These are what you call "allies". The general public has no-say in these matters, those are just some of the consequences(or benefits if you work for the Government) that are exercised each and everyday all over the world.

Why now are people surprised?? This is what amazes me.

That was Gwede Mantashe. Is is not a Government official, but an ANC official. He is perfectly entitled to pledge support for Zanu-PF.
You are confusing State and Party. Even though a party may be elected to State, they are still a separate entity with different priorities and responsibilities. The State should not choose side, the party definitely can

ag, in what world are you living here. This is SA, the ruling party makes no distinction whatsoever between party and state.
