African leaders continue to send congratulatory messages to President Robert Mugabe and Zanu-PF following their huge victory in the harmonised elections. The leaders of Lesotho, Eritrea, Benin, South Sudan and founding president of the Republic of Namibia have added their voices to the chorus of world leaders who have welcomed Zanu PF’s victory.

In his message, King Letsie III of Lesotho said President Mugabe’s re-election to the high office is a clear demonstration of the confidence and trust that the people of Zimbabwe have in his leadership.

King Letsie III assured President Mugabe of Lesotho’s unwavering commitment to working closely with Zimbabwe in further strengthening the fruitful co-operation in Sadc and maintaining the long-standing friendship between the two countries.

President Boni Yayi of Benin who addressed President Mugabe as Mr President and Elder, said Zanu PF’s victory will allow the President to continue the noble and exciting mission of nation building in social harmony.

President Yayi said the victory is a sign of confidence that the people of Zimbabwe have in President Mugabe and that it proves that the majority of Zimbabweans recognise President Mugabe’s qualities.

South Sudan leader Salva Kiir Mayardyt extended his country’s congratulations for what he called an ‘impressive victory’.

Namibia’s founding father and leader of the Sam Nujoma Foundation also sent his message, saying Zanu PF’s victory is also the victory of SWAPO and the Namibian people.

He saluted Zimbabweans for showing resilience as demonstrated by their adherence to Zanu-PF’s clarion call to continue the economic struggle.

He said President Mugabe and Zanu PF’s re-election is a sign of the trust that the people of Zimbabwe have in the party and leader to defend the hard-won freedom and independence against the neo-colonial onslaught whose purpose is to enslave Zimbabwe and the rest of the continent with the aim of continuing to exploit the abundant natural resources.

Dr Nujoma thanked Zimbabwe for the technical support it continues to give to the sister Republic of Namibia saying he looks forward to new opportunities in their bilateral cooperation.

Several other African countries including Zambia, Mauritius, Nigeria and South Africa and the facilitator, President Jacob Zuma and observer missions such as the African Union, Sadc PF, Sadc, ACP and others have pronounced the Zimbabwean polls as free and fair.
