ZANU PF has warned the United States of America Ambassador Brian Nichols to desist from interfering in Zimbabwe’s internal affairs through sponsoring subversive activities as this is inconsistent with his mandate.
The warning comes at time when the USA through its Embassy has been exposed as the brains behind the mooted opposition demonstrations scheduled for the 31st of July.
ZANU PF Acting Secretary for Information and Publicity and National Spokesperson Cde Patrick Chinamasa, said that Ambassador Nichols must appreciate that Zimbabwe is a sovereign state and not an extension of the American state.
“We remind the US Ambassador Mr Brian Nichols and his coterie of gangsters and mercenaries disguised as diplomats that it is high time they get to know that Zimbabwe is a sovereign Republic and full state under the Montevideo Convention," Cde Chinamasa said.
"If he (Nichols) continues to engage in acts of undermining this Republic, mobilizing and funding disturbances, coordinating violence and training insurgency, our leadership will not hesitate to give him marching orders.
"Diplomats should not behave like thugs. ZANU PF reminds Mr Nichols that he is not a super diplomat in this country."
Cde Chinamasa said the ruling ZANU PF will not stand idle and watch the gains of the liberation struggle reversed by local proxies of the West such as the MDC-A.
“There are several diplomats that are seconded to this Republic from the African Union member countries and the world over. They have never masqueraded and pretended to be our prefects as Mr Nichols is doing. Zimbabwe is not one of the States or provinces that makes the USA," Cde Chinamasa said.
"We fought for this country to preserve it and protect it, not to surrender it to those from whom we tirelessly fought for it. Never ever in our life time. Christopher Dell tried it and the shoes proved too big for him. Don't dare!”
