ANC of South Africa concerned about situation in Zimbabwe


South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) today expressed concern about the instability in Zimbabwe while dismissing intervention proposals.

Gwede Mantashe, general secretary of the ANC, made the remarks when responding to media inquiry at a press conference in Johannesburg.

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe fired his deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa last week.

Zimbabwe's defence forces commander general Constantine Chiwenga yesterday said the military will "step in" if the revolution is under threat.

"We are obviously concerned as it impacts on us," said Mantashe, while noting it is up to the Zimbabwean government and Zimbabwe's ruling party ANU-PF to deal with the issue.

The ANC and ZANU-PF have relations dating back to the liberation struggle.

They meet periodically to discuss issue of mutual cooperation.- Xinhua
