Once Again, South African Delegation Leaves Zimbabwe Empty-Handed

The African National Congress delegation that visited Zimbabwe on a fact-finding mission is again returning to South Africa without meeting opposition political parties and civic organisations - as they had been instructed to do by President Cyril Ramaphosa. According to Newzimbabwe.com, the ruling Zanu-PF's top leadership dismissed as false, reports that there is an economic and political crisis in Zimbabwe, blaming the challenges facing the country on social media users peddling falsehoods. Since July, a crackdown on opposition politicians and journalists characterised by alleged kidnappings and torture has drawn international attention, but Zanu-PF insists there is no crisis at all.
