South Africa’s ruling ANC vowed Tuesday to reimburse government for use of an airforce jet that flew its officials to Harare last week for crisis talks on Zimbabwe.

President Cyril Ramaphosa dispatched a high-powered delegation of envoys from his African National Congress (ANC) to discuss political and economic problems in neighbouring Zimbabwe.

But the delegation jetted into Harare on a state plane, sparking widespread criticism and allegations of abuse of state resources for party business.

The ANC delegates were also pilloried for breaching lockdown regulations as South Africa’s borders are shut to control the spread of the coronavirus.
