President of the republic of Zimbabwe.
It's with immense pleasure and happiness that we have received the news of your reelection as president of the Republic of Zimbabwe. On this occasion, I would like to convey to you my most sincere congratulations, and those of the leadership of the POLISARIO and the Saharawi people and government, on the renewal of the Zimbabwean people's well deserved trust in Your Excellency, and your ZANU-PF Party, to lead the country forward toward a brighter tomorrow.
As we have always been, we are convinced that under your leadership the brotherly people of Zimbabwe will carry on with its pursuit for more freedom, democracy and development, not only for Zimbabwe, but for the African continent as a whole. For we are sure that Robert Mugabe, who is one of the historical African heroes who led the struggle for the emancipation of the continent from the colonial yoke, will continue to fight, with no less vigor, for freer, more stable, and more prosperous Africa.
I avail myself of this auspicious opportunity to express our willingness and determination to work with you to further promote the already strong relations existing between our two brotherly peoples and countries. We are positive that together we can make a difference as to providing better future for the present and future generations of Africans.
Please accept, your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
President of the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic
Secretary General of the Frente POLISARIO."
