The President of Zimbabwe asked his “brother” Putin for help

Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has complained to Russian President Vladimir Putin that the United States is building military bases in neighboring Zambia. He believes that this threatens the security and safety of his country. Mnangagwa asked the Russian dictator for military support so that he could defend Zimbabwe against its Western-backed neighbour.

Emmerson Mnangagwa visited St. Petersburg, where the International Economic Forum, which was ignored by the West, is being held. He began his conversation with Putin by calling him his dear brother, then quickly moved on to criticizing his northern neighbor’s foreign policy.

The West has only begun to consolidate its power in Zambia. As you know, there was a time when Zambia and Zimbabwe were one country and were called Northern and Southern Rhodesia. It was one thing, but now we’re apart. “The Americans are consolidating their power in this country, both in terms of security and financial support for Zambia, to make sure that we will feel united,” 81-year-old Mnangagwa explained to Vladimir Putin during a conversation, short excerpts of which appeared on the social media site. Internet.

Mnangagwa’s announcement came just eight days after his visit to Zambia in Livingstone to attend the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Presidents’ Summit, where he was warmly received by Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema.

“I was shocked by this recklessness.”

-There is a serious error in our ability to judge. The introduction of the new Chairman of SADC against a member state in front of a foreign head of state is very unfortunate. “I will stop here and say that I am very shocked by this recklessness,” said Walter Mzembe, a former Zimbabwean foreign minister.

Zimbabwe currently holds the presidency of SADC. He is also one of the founders of this organization which was established in Lusaka, Zambia, in April 1980. Zambia and Zimbabwe have enjoyed very good relations since their liberation from British colonial rule in 1964 and 1980 respectively. Zambia has contributed greatly to its neighbour’s liberation struggle.
