Zimbabwe rejects US election observers

Zimbabwean has turned down a United States offer to send election observers in exchange for funding for the elections. The offer was made by Assistant Secretary of State Johnnie Carson who said: “I am prepared to seek funding for Zimbabwe’s harmonised national elections the moment Zimbabwe opens its doors to independent, non-governmental observers.” George Charamba, spokesman of President Robert Mugabe, rebuffed Carson’s offer, saying he was setting conditions which Zimbabweans find “obnoxious”. “You cannot at one level hail Zimbabwe’s capacity to handle a national process while at another level demanding that it be observed.” Charamba said. “In any case, they come from another hemisphere which has nothing to do with us.”
