HARARE – President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s globetrotting is an indication of
desperation, the opposition MDC has said.

This comes as Mnangagwa this week travelled to Conakry, Guinea for a
two-day State visit meant to consolidate African support for Zimbabwe’s
re-engagement agenda.

MDC national chairperson Morgan Komichi said the president should not be
looking for solutions outside the country but come home and identify the
right people who can assist.

Komichi added that by globetrotting Mnangagwa is trying to get
international recognition which he is not being awarded as he is

“The globetrotting is an indication of desperation. He is simply looking
for a solution to resolve the situation.

“The legitimacy crisis emanated from a rigged election which failed to get
international recognition which is a fundamental step for him to get a
solution to the economic crisis.

“In globetrotting he’s trying to engage the international community but
they don’t want to work with someone who has got legitimacy issues.”

However, deputy Information minister  Energy Mutodi said the opposition
party is in no position to decide which visit is beneficial to the country
or not.

He said Mnangagwa is obliged to respond to other presidents’ mutual calls
in line with the country’s business whether they add value or not.

He noted that government is determined to work towards ensuring that
things get better in the country as they have also launched the
Transitional Stabilisation Programme.

“How can those in the opposition tell which visit is beneficial and which
is not beneficial for the country.

“The president responds to bilateral calls by other heads of States to
discuss business and it’s certainly subject to probability whether or not
any bilateral talks will add value to us.

“That’s the way it is,” Mutodi said.

    Who among us is surprised?

    Globetrotting is one of the many, many wicked habits that ED learned while worshiping at the feet of his old master.

    His already learned mass killing skills will soon be on full display again.

    What I want to know is why to these Heads of State from Guinea and wherever, not come to Zimbabwe on a State visit, why must our Preseident have to visit prospective investors/donors. How much money goes out with these delegations, and is it accounted for, or just stashed away in a foreign bank.

    Yes, his efforts would be better spent recovering all the wealth stolen by Mugabe and his henchmen… oh wait……
