SUBJECT: MEDIA REACTION SECRETARY POWELL'S OP-ED ON ZIM
UNDER FIRE; HARARE

1. The government-controlled daily "The Herald" continues
to publish discourteous articles against Secretary of State
Colin Powell. Excerpts of an
op-ed carried in the July 2 edition follow:

2. Under headline "U. S. Secretary of State ignorant of
Zimbabwean situation" the "Herald" (07/02) carried
the following op-ed by Willmore Kanyongo - based in
the United States - on page 4:

"It is clear the U. S. Secretary of State - Colin
Powell - is totally ignorant of the Zimbabwean
situation. The article he wrote. . .has further
shown him as a shameless liar, who habitually sought
to build his foreign policy on utter fabrication. .
.American foreign policy has always been underpinned
by double talk, double standards, deception and
false promises of money if certain leaders are
removed. . .Zimbabweans should be wary and not
succumb to these American machinations."
