“I think Nelson Chamisa is a talented, brave and charismatic leader. I encourage him to continue to work to advance his goal.”
He added that the US will continue to extend its hand to Zimbabwe saying the world’s economic super power is already funding various programs across all sectors including the cholera war.
“We will be forward to engage with all sectors of Zimbabwean society to help Zimbabweans attain the kind of future they want for themselves.
