President Emmerson Mnangagwa made a financial pledge on behalf of the nation towards the Global Fund for AIDS after the France President Macron made a passionate case for the replenishment of the Fund.

The event has been attended by delegates from across the continent including Bill Gates who was praised for his consistent donations since the launch of the Fund.

In an update made by the Finance Minister Prof Mthuli Ncube said President Macron gave an appraisal report on Zimbabwe for doing well in the area of HIV, TB, Malaria Control and in the use of Global Fund resources.

However, back home Mnangagwa is being criticized for making a financial pledge at a point he is failing to pay the country’s doctors who uphold the health system.
