Msebele then blamed the Zanu PF government of making it difficult for diplomatic missions to operate in Bulawayo.
“The Zanu PF government has made it difficult for embassies to open up consulates in other major cities. Zanu PF is afraid to give power to the people because they are protecting their corrupt activities. They are treating the country like their private playground,” he said.
“We call upon all pressure groups, interest groups and progressive non-governmental organisations to join us in our noble call. We request all embassies to engage the government and open consulates in Bulawayo. Consular services should be accessible to the majority of our people.”
Msebele said they would continue to engage strategic partners like South Africa and Botswana to push for consular offices in Bulawayo.
