Mpofu said this after meeting with a Commonwealth delegation which is in Zimbabwe to assess the country’s eligibility to rejoin the Commonwealth. He said Zanu-PF will meet with election observers from GALZ. Said Mpofu:

Yesterday (Monday) we met the National Democratic Institute and the International Research Institute from Ireland. We also have requests from observers like GALZ (Gays and Lesbians Association of Zimbabwe) and we will be meeting them soon to hear their issues as well. We will also meet National Association of Non-Governmental Organisations (NANGO).
