Zambian ruler Michael Sata is expected to attend Zimbabwe’s Zanu-PF’s 11th Annual National People’s Conference scheduled for Bulawayo in December, according to the Zimbabwen government newspaper the Herald.
Zanu-PF secretary for administration Cde Didymus Mutasa said President Sata was invited to attend the conference before he became Zambian Head of State and Government.
“We are inviting all Sadc governing parties to attend the conference.
“We have always done that. President Sata’s Patriotic Front has won Zambian elections and we are going to invite them to the conference,” he said.
Cde Mutasa said Zanu-PF had good relations with President Sata who defeated Mr Rupiah Banda in recent polls.
Addressing the Zanu-PF Central Committee meeting last week, President Mugabe congratulated President Sata. He said Zanu-PF respected the will of the Zambians and recognised their position.
