British Prime Minister Theresa May To Send Envoy To Zimbabwe Next Month
President Emmerson Mnangagwa said that he is expecting to receive a special envoy from British Prime Minister Theresa May this week to discuss issues of mutual interest between the two countries. He said that the envoy is expected to discuss on a number of issues including Zimbabwe’s possible return to the Commonwealth.
I had 30 or 40 minutes interview with BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) and I really had (a) broad interview with them not only in relation to the transition, but in relation to broad issues like the Commonwealth, the issues of relations between us and Britain. I am aware that the current British Prime Minister Theresa May is sending an envoy during the course of the first week of February, so most of the issues will be ironed out at meeting.
It will be the third time President Mnangagwa is hosting a British envoy in less than three months. The first was British Minister for Africa Rory Stewart who met President Mnangagwa a few hours after his inauguration on November 24, last year. He was followed by Sir Simon Gerard McDonald who is Permanent Under-Secretary at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Head of the Diplomatic Service. Although Mnangagwa did not name the British envoy, Pindula News has every reason to believe that it will be the new Africa Minister Mr Harriett Baldwin with Star FM reporting that he was expected to visit Zimbabwe in due course.
