Emmerson Mnangagwa received a Highlanders football club replica jesery after hosting the team at the State House in Bulawayo yesterday.
He met Highlanders leadership led by board chairman Luke Mnkandla, executive chairman Kenneth Mhlophe, the club’s treasurer Donald Ndebele and chief executive officer Nhlanhla Dube.
Highlanders presented a Number-9 jersey to ED as well as another framed club replica.
Mnangagwa arrived in Bulawayo on Tuesday evening ahead of the Gwayi-Shangani pipeline ground-breaking ceremony, as well as the commissioning of the Epping Forest boreholes in Nyamandlovu.
The Chronicle reports that Bosso head of secretariat, Dube, briefed Mnangagwa about the progress that they have made in relation to the mining claim that was given to the club to ease its financial crisis.
The Government through the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development approved relevant paperwork for Bosso to start operations at their gold mining claim in Inyathi, Bubi District last December and the club has been hunting for potential partners.
