E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL KPAO KMDR ZI
SUBJECT: MEDIA REACTION U. S. POLICY TOWARDS ZIM UNDER
FIRE; HARARE

1. Under headline "U. S. taking out carrot and stick once
again" the July 3 edition of the independent daily "The
Daily News" carried an op-ed by Kuthula Matshazi on page 8
that was critical of the United States policy towards
Zimbabwe. Excerpts:

2. ". . .The carrot-and-stick principle that Powell
proposes is very ludicrous and derogatory to a
people's status. It assumes that money is the fixer
of everything. Never. And Bush and Powell know
that too. You can't buy us so cheap, Bush and
Powell. Sure, there are problems in Zimbabwe, but I
do not think that we need America to come and
interfere in our affairs. As events and time have
shown, only the power of the people can solve the
problems of Zimbabwe. Not American money and
politics. . . ."
