Zimbabwe’s Foreign Affairs Minister, General  Sibusiso Moyo(rtd) has appealed to Australia to support the country’s Commonwealth readmission agenda.

In an article published in an Australian-based publication, the Spectator, the foreign Affairs Minister appealed to Commonwealth member states to support the Zimbabwean agenda.

He said:

But, ultimately, we cannot go it alone — and that’s why Zimbabwe now looks to Australia for support to expedite our re-admission to the Commonwealth. Put simply, our speed and capacity to complete reforms after Mugabe-era isolationism can be accelerated by our Commonwealth return.

The Commonwealth consists of 53 member states, nearly all of them former colonies of the British Empire.
