Minister Sibusiso Moyo launches the Mission in Mauritius as the Head of the SADC Electoral Observation Mission(SEOM).

In his statement, Moyo said their principles and guidelines provides objectives and scientific methodologies of the observation of elections in order to contribute to the consolidation of democracy in the region by enhancing best electoral practices and addressing any electoral shortcomings.

However, the launch comes amid reports that he is pleading with Western diplomats after he issued an ‘undiplomatic’ statement against the US Ambassador Brian Nichols threatening him.

SB Moyo has chickened out claiming that he is not the one who wrote the statement.

He says he received it from the office of the President.

The threats against the Trump administration is another dead end to ED Mnangagwa’s re engagement efforts.
