Mnangagwa breaks leave again, flies to Moza for Nyusi inauguration
By Staff Reporter
PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa Tuesday arrived in Maputo, the Mozambican capital where he is set to join other heads of state for the inauguration of the former Portuguese colony’s President Filipe Nyusi.
The event is scheduled to take place this Wednesday.
Nyusi was re-elected for a second term as the president in the October elections by winning 73 percent of the vote.
However, to most Zimbabweans, it is Mnangagwa’s continued willingness to break his three-week annual leave to take part in State activities, that leaves a lot of questions.
Mnangagwa took his vacation this past week but, unlike his predecessor Robert Mugabe who enjoyed his holiday in Thailand, has chosen to remain in the country amid speculation he feared an uprising against his rule while outside the country.
The Zimbabwean leader was at State House on Monday to meet the Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi, who was visiting the country.
During his vacation, Mnangagwa has also held a meeting with the Presidential Advisory Council (PAC) at his Munhumutapa Offices.
