Gnodkte who was speaking to journalists in Masvingo, after donating literature books to Great Zimbabwe University, said Germany was very optimistic about reforms underway and remained committed in the country’s development programmes.
“I don’t want to speak about travel restrictions because thus not what I came here to do but in brief, I am sure there will be no removal of those travel bans before a free and fair election is held in Zimbabwe,” said Gnodkte.
The books will support the university’s African Language department which has just introduced the German language.
Gnodkte said he attached a lot of value to the university’s programme which had opened ways for other co-operations such as cultural exchanges.
Great Zimbabwe University Vice Chancellor, Professor Obert Maravanyika, said the relationship between his institution and the Germany Embassy would help students overcome language barriers.
