MDC-T to be represented at ANC centenary celebrations

MDC-T to be represented at ANC centenary celebrations
Published: 06 January 2012 (1553 Views)
Movement for Democratic Change led by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said its national chairperson Lovemore Moyo will represent the party at the ANC centenary.

"The MDC is appreciative of the neutral role being played by South Africa under the direction of the ANC in its mediation efforts in the Zimbabwean situation," the party said in a statement.

Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe will not attend celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the ANC, state media reported on Friday.

"His excellency the president, who started his annual leave recently, and who is in the Far East, is unable to personally attend these important celebrations, to which he was invited," his spokesperson George Charamba told The Herald daily.

Vice President Joice Mujuru will instead represent Mugabe's Zanu-PF party, he added.

The ANC had on Wednesday confirmed Mugabe's attendance at the weekend celebrations. Mugabe was a key leader of the Front Line States, gathering South Africa's neighbours in opposition to apartheid.

Mugabe normally takes leave in December until the end of January, but cannot travel to Western countries due to a decade-old travel ban imposed over flawed elections.
