    Zimbabwe’s envoy to Russia, Ambassador Boniface Chidyausiku says the crowning moment of his stay in Russia was the signing of the government to government agreement on the 6th of September, a development which will see the Russians inject US billion into the Great Dyke.

    Having served in several diplomatic missions for the past 25 years, Ambassador Chidyausiku is renowned for being resolute and candid in his defence of Zimbabwean policies and strongly denouncing illegal sanctions while he was still the Zimbabwean ambassador to the United Nations in New York.

    In 2011 Ambassador Chidyausiku was posted to Russia were he has managed to lure Russian companies to invest in Zimbabwe.

    He says when he arrived in Russia trade relations between Harare and Moscow were not as strong as trade relations that existed between Russia and Malawi.

    The situation has since changed with more Russian companies expressing keen interest to invest in Zimbabwe.

    Ambassador Chidyausiku says Zimbabwe has a lot to learn from the Russian government which is given direction by the private sector and expressed hope that Zimbabwe will reclaim its position on the African continent as there is no doubt that the will is there.

    Powerful delegations from Harare have visited Moscow since 2011 some of who include Foreign Affairs Minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi, Defence Minister Sydney Sekeramayi, Finance and Economic Development Minister Patrick Chinamasa, with the latest being Environment, Water and Climate Minister Saviour Kasukuwere.

    From Russia, Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov and Industry and Trade Minister Mr Manturov have also visited Zimbabwe.

    Ambassador Chidyausiku has since been recalled home and he says he will leave Moscow a satisfied man. – ZBC
