Britain’s Africa minister Rory Stewart arrived in Zimbabwe earlier today, reports AFP news agency.
It is ahead of the inauguration tomorrow of the country’s new leader Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Mr Stewart is due to meet political and business leaders, as well as human rights groups and NGOs, the UK foreign ministry said in a statement to AFP.
He described the historic change as “an absolutely critical moment” following former President Robert Mugabe’s “ruinous rule”.
“Britain wants to be a genuine partner for Zimbabweans as they forge a new future,” Mr Stewart told AFP.
