BBC BREAKFAST WITH FROST INTERVIEW: JONATHAN MOYO, ZIMBABWEAN INFORMATION MINISTER MARCH 3RD, 2002

Please note "BBC Breakfast with Frost" must be credited if any part of this transcript is used

DAVID FROST: Well now as we heard earlier in the news, the Commonwealth heads of government meeting is taking place in Australia right now. So far they're no nearer reaching a compromise about what to do on Zimbabwe, the Zimbabwe Government Information Minister, Jonathan Moyo, is at the meeting and this morning in a BBC interview with our correspondent, Brian Hanrahan, he rejected the role of the Commonwealth observers monitoring the country's presidential elections.

JONATHAN MOYO: The verdict of the people of Zimbabwe is what matters in an election that is done in accordance with the constitution and the laws of Zimbabwe.

BRIAN HANRAHAN: Even if the Commonwealth observer team who are there say they considered it to be unfair.

JONATHAN MOYO: I want to repeat, and I want this to be understood very clearly. The elections in Zimbabwe will be decided by voters and ... wherever they come from.
