Dr Ibbo Mandaza, academic and an intellectual based in Zimbabwe, says South Africa knew about the current political situation in Zimbabwe before it happened.
South Africa is part of it. The role of South Africa in the Zimbabwean situation needs to be interrogated very seriously.— Dr Ibbo Mandaza, academic and an intellectual based in Zimbabwe
Mandaza argued that it was well choreographed.
“South Africa is chair of the SADC (Southern African Development Community) so they had to know something.”
He added that the situation is unacceptable and must be addressed.
