Harare — ZANU-PF national chairman Cde Simon Khaya Moyo has hailed his ANC counterpart, Cde Baleka Mbete, for recently taking time off to visit Zimbabwe.
In correspondence to Cde Mbete, the Zanu-PF national chairman said it was an honour for Zanu-PF to host their esteemed colleague.
Cde Mbete was in Zimbabwe at the end of April and took time off to attend celebrations to mark Cde Khaya Moyo's ascendancy to the Zanu-PF national chairmanship.
"It is difficult to find suitable words to describe your visit as it is still a plural talk across the country. We eternally remain ever grateful.
"We indeed are one people, sharing not only past liberation historic moments, a common border, a common culture and indeed a common destiny," he said.
Cde Khaya Moyo said the recently held Zanu-PF Politburo meeting was full of praise for Cde Mbete and your "esteemed party for your visionary leadership and enviable comradeship".
Speaking at the celebrations, Cde Mbete urged Prime Minister Tsvangirai to play an active role in calling for the lifting of illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe.
She said there was need for a collective voice from all progressive Zimbabweans on calls for an end to the embargo.
