President Mnangagwa meets FRELIMO Presidential candidate

Story by Bruce Chahwanda, Political Editor

FRELIMO Acting Secretary General and Presidential candidate Cde Daniel Francisco Chapo paid a courtesy call on President Emmerson Mnangagwa at State House in Harare this Thursday.

The FRELIMO delegation led by Cde Chapo, included politburo and central committee members, among others.

The delegation met with President Mnangagwa at State House and the two leaders discussed the upcoming elections in Mozambique set for October this year.

Speaking to journalists in Portuguese after the meeting, Cde Chapo said ZANU PF and FRELIMO enjoy cordial relations, with two sister liberation movements seeking to share notes on mobilisation of supporters ahead of the October polls.

“Even this year, there was a meeting here in Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls, in which party leaders were present including the general secretaries of these liberating parties. It is in this sense that, whenever there are elections, now there were elections in South Africa, where the ANC was running, it is a liberating party in South Africa, FRELIMO was there, ZANU PF was there, Chama Cha Mapinduzi was there.

“So, having elections in Mozambique, we will also need technical support, in terms of mobilisation, and ZANU PF will also be present in Mozambique. Similarly, when there are elections in Zimbabwe, FRELIMO has been here, there have now been elections in South Africa, ZANU PF was in South Africa, FRELIMO was in South Africa, they are broken brothers, we were born at the same time, liberators, we are always together as brothers,” he said.

Mozambique general elections are slated for the 9th of October this year.
