British Government Defends Controversial Invite Of Zim's UK Ambassador To Royal Wedding

“Representatives from all countries that the United Kingdom has working relationships with have been invited to the Royal Wedding, “Keith Scott, British Embassy First Secretary Political/Communications told Radio VOP in an interview on Wednesday.

“The United Kingdom has contacts with all parties subject to the Global Political Agreement, and this includes contact with the Zimbabwean Embassy in the United Kingdom.  This is a State occasion, not a political event.”

The British government has come under fire from critics and its media for inviting individuals whose governments are known for human rights violations.

President Robert Mugabe leads a blacklist of Zimbabwean politicians who have been put in a Western travel ban and sanctions for gross rights violations.
