The Chairman of Meikles Limited, the successor to what was Meikles Africa Limited, John Moxon, has been accused by local newspapers as having associated himself politically with one of the political parties in Zimbabwe.
Stakeholders are assured that Mr Moxon considers himself as being apolitical and does not give preference to any political party. A policy of not participating in political matters is also the Group policy.
There have been occasions when observers, or other actors in the Zimbabwe environment have tried to challenge the political neutrality that the Group has always adhered to and no doubt there will be occasions in the future, when the Group or its officers will be accused of bias towards one or other of the political parties. It has not always been easy to maintain a neutral position, but this remains the Group objective.
