Tannock: “cautiously optimistic” about Zimbabwe future

Charles Tannock, MEP (UK, ECR), member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament shares his views on possible democratic developments in Zimbabwe in the aftermath of Robert Mugabe impeachment. Although an emerging new leader of the country Emmerson Mnangagwa used to be Mugabe’s closes aid, Tannock does not exclude the changes towards democratisation in domestic and foreign policy during Mnangagwa presidency. Tannock claims the European Parliament has been always paying greatest attention to the situation in Zimbabwe, calling the government in numerous resolutions to respect human rights and rule of law. However a glimpse of hope for better future for Zimbabweans came with a new leadership, the MEPs follow with keen attention Emmerson Mnangagwa’ next steps.
