WASHINGTON — Zanu-PF chairman Simon Khaya Moyo is accusing the United States
and other western governments of using local non-governmental organizations
to interfere in Zimbabwe’s internal politics.

Mr. Moyo made the remarks in a meeting with U.S ambassador Bruce Wharton and
Swiss ambassador Luciano Lavazzari.

The three met at Zanu-PF headqurters in Harare on Tuesday. In response, the
U.S said it is only interested in supporting national development.

Human rights groups accuse the police of clamping down on civil society
organizations and democracy campaingers ahead of the constitutional
referendum and general elections expected later this year.

President Robert Mugabe is yet to proclaim the dates for the referendum and
general elections.

Police say they are only working to ensure peace as Moyo accused NGOs of
tarnishing the image of the country and instigating violence.

Despite the accusations, American ambassador Wharton said the meeting with
Zanu-PF was cordial, though acknowledging that there were disagreements.

When asked about the NGO agenda, Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition cordinatior
MacDonald Lewanika dismissed suggestions that they are interfereing in the
nation’s politics.
