A Helicopter carrying the president of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa has finally landed in Mutare.
Few days ago it was reported that the president canceled his trip to Mutare after the Helicopter failed to land due to bad weather conditions.
The spokesperson of the president, George Charamba has confirmed that the president landed safely in Mutare.
“His Excellency the President has now landed in Mutare in readiness for commissioning of an oxygen plant, the first ever in the country, to meet gas requirements for the country, including for hospitals & clinics. The event had to be postponed last week on account of bad weather,” tweeted George Charamba.
“Upon arrival, His Excellency briefed his supporters on the just-ended SADC. He, for the first time, disclosed that he phoned the outgoing Zambian President, President Edgar Lungu, to persuade him to make way for the winner, President-Elect, Hichilema, to secure the peace in the country and region. Turning to opposition members who dream of the same happening in Zimbabwe, the ZANU-PF leader urged such dreamers to come back to their senses,” he added.
The event in Mutare is also being attended by the vice president of Zimbabwe, Constantino Chiwenga.
