A delegation of the African National Congress (ANC) from South Africa arrived last night to meet with representatives of the Zanu-PF party on a solidarity visit.

The team being led by the ANC secretary general, Cde Ace Magashule, was informed this morning about the current situation in the country by the secretary of the ruling party, Cde Orbert Mpofu, at the headquarters of Zanu PF. Other senior ANC officials who have arrived in the country are Cde Tony Yengeni, Cde Thoko Didiza, Cde Bongani Nongo, who are all members of the central committee of ANC and Cde Justice Phitso, the chief of staff of the secretary general.

In his speech, Cde Magashule applauded President Mnangagwa for giving them the opportunity to interact with their colleagues.

"We clearly understand the situation on the ground that is affecting their country and we want to move forward as former liberation movements to deal with their situation," he said.

Cde Mpofu said that they were united by a very rich revolutionary background that actually realized that its people were emancipated from the tentacles of oppression and subjugation for many years.

"Our long walk to freedom, as his founding father, Cde Nelson Rolihlala Mandela, claims, is still going on. Like Zimbabwe, we have reached a milestone in this journey of emancipation, ensuring that we take ownership of the land.

"This precious resource, which is very dear and sentimental to all Africans, should not be taken for granted," he said.
