The following message from Freedom Road Socialist Organization was sent to Robert Mugabe, President and First Secretary of the Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) following his victory in the elections.
To: Comrade Robert Mugabe, President and First Secretary of Zanu PF
From: Freedom Road Socialist Organization, USA
We send our warmest greetings and congratulations on the occasion of your re-election to the Presidency of Zimbabwe. We see this victory of ZANU-PF as an historical victory for the cause of African liberation, and a blow against neo-colonialism and imperialism. We condemn the attempts by the government of the United States to discredit Zimbabwe’s free and fair electoral process.
The long struggle of the people of Zimbabwe, under the leadership of ZANU-PF, to smash the Western-backed white minority rulers was a great inspiration to people in the United States and around the world. We continue to be impressed by the heroic efforts of ZANU-PF to press forward the revolutionary process and to build a country that is self-reliant and independent of Western imperialism.
We salute you, the leadership of ZANU-PF and people of Zimbabwe and we wish you every success in the future.
Freedom Road Socialist Organization, USA
