The Minister of Foreign Affairs Sibusisio Busi Moyo who had allegedly retracted his statements attacking The US Ambassador Brian Nichols has made a u-turn and insists that he has not apologised to the Diplomatic community. The development was shared by the Communications Department in The Foreign Affairs Ministry.
There are press reports that have come to the attention of the Ministry suggesting that the Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Lt. Gen. (Rtd) Dr. S.B. Moyo, disowned the statement he issued on 31 October 2019 on the recent conduct and statements of the Ambassador of the United States of America to the Republic of Zimbabwe, His Excellency Brian A Nichols.
For the record, the Honourable Minister has neither retracted nor renounced his statement. The said reports are mischievous and should be dismissed with the contempt they deserve.
