Emmerson Mnangagwa has revealed why he appointed Prophet Uebert Angel as a Presidential Envoy and Ambassador at Large with a remit that covers Europe, North America, South America and Central America.

Mnangagwa said his government will not shy away from noticing the uniqueness and competences of Zimbabwe nationals both at home and abroad.

“I discovered that he comes from Zaka but he has vast business network in Europe and London away from Zaka, he has TV channels. I said why can’t you come home and he said if you call me I will come. So I called him and we discussed”, he said.

Angel is the first ambassador to be appointed to promote Zimbabwe’ relations with America and London.

Mnangagwa said Angel had to undergo training in diplomacy and he did very well.

Mnangagwa and Vice President Constantino Chiwenga officiated at the ground breaking ceremony for Angel’s 6350 seater “Harare Hippodrome” and 40 executive suite only “Beethoven Hotel” in Braeside, Harare.
