Zimbabwe - Germany Accuses Mugabe's Party Of Betrayal

Germany has accused Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu-PF ruling party of betrayal after its senior officials invaded a prime game reserve run by German investors.
Mr Hans-Gunter Gnodtke, Germany’s ambassador to Zimbabwe, told journalists in Harare on Wednesday that his country was now considering boycotting the World Tourism Conference to be jointly hosted by Zambia and Zimbabwe in August in protest.

Over 25 Zanu-PF officials invaded the 340,000-hectare Save Valley Conservancy amid threats of additional sanctions by the European Union (EU) on President Mugabe’s government.

Mr Gnodtke said the conservancy owners in the Save Valley were covered by a Bilateral Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (BIPPA) between Zimbabwe and Germany signed by the Zanu-PF government.

“When we talk of German investors in Zimbabwe, we are talking of those investors who came here at Zanu-PF’s invitation,” he said.

“We had Zimbabwe ministers coming to Germany inviting Germans to Zimbabwe. Even President Mugabe came to Germany and invited Germans to come to Zimbabwe,” he added.
