On Monday Lindiwe Zulu spoke to diplomats and civil society leaders at a conference in Pretoria, under the theme Building International Consensus on Zimbabwe. She dismissed the notion held by many in ZANU PF that elections would be held this year.
‘Elections in 2011 are totally and completely out. When Zimbabwe goes to elections, it has to be elections that are very different from those held in 2008, Zulu said. She added that ‘implementation of all GPA issues and all outstanding issues will create an enabling environment in Zimbabwe and will be a confidence building mechanism.’
