Trump Sends A Message to Mugabe After Winning
Harare: United States envoy to Zimbabwe, Mr Harry K Thomas Jnr has warned Mugabe’s government that Donald Trump is not a friend of election riggers.
He added that free and fair election in 2018 could improve US-Zimbabwe relations.
Thomas was speaking soon after Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, was declared the winner of the 2016 polls after beating rival Hillary Clinton.
“America would like to see democracy prevail in Zimbabwe and the will of the people must always be respected.
“Zimbabwe will remain on the top of human rights support and we urge free and fair elections in 2018,” he said.
He said Washington will continue with its HIV and AIDS and food donation projects.
The envoy’s message resonates well with Trump message to African leaders.
During his election campaign, Trump threatened to deal with leaders who cheat on elections.
