Mnangagwa misses Hwange rally

PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa inexplicably failed to address thousands of Zanu PF supporters who had turned up at the Colliery Stadium yesterday.

Instead, the Zanu PF leader proceeded to the resort town of Victoria Falls, where he was reportedly due to officiate at a Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce business function.

While State media had reported that Mnangagwa would address the Hwange community after officially launching the power station project, the President left many seething with anger after he somehow ignored the multitudes, with acting Information minister Simon Khaya Moyo adding to the confusion by claiming he was not in the loop about the rally.

“I did not know about a rally,” Khaya Moyo told NewsDay last night.

Asked if the President had been aware, Khaya Moyo retorted: “I don’t know.”

Zanu PF supporters braved the punishing humid conditions in Hwange from morning to late afternoon waiting for the party leader to address them, but were forced to troop out of the stadium after officials told them Mnangagwa “was busy”.

“We have just been told that the President is tied up with business. We waited since morning and now this. It’s not right. They should have told us earlier,” said one disappointed supporter draped in new party regalia, leaving the small mining town of Hwange in a kaleidoscope of Zanu PF colours.

Information ministry principal director Regis Chikowore, who attended the Hwange power project event, was not picking up calls.

Sources claimed Mnangagwa was still scheduled to address a campaign rally in Matabeleland North this weekend although this could not be confirmed.
It would have been the first rally that Mnangagwa was addressing under a week after a deadly bomb blast at Bulawayo’s White City Stadium left two of his aides dead and over 40 others injured.

  3. Waiting for who??? It serves them right, they must wake up & smell the coffee, everybody knows Chamisa is the only game in town

    The fact that you do not support ED does not mean everyone else should shun him. Support Chamisa or any other candidate for that matter and let those who see appealing attributes in Mnangagwa freely exercise their democratic rights.

  5. @Chokwadi…If after a whole 8 months ED can’t solve the cash crisis or arrest a single corrupt criminal in government among many other failures as per pledges out of his own mouth then what other ‘appealing attributes’ can there ever be?

    1. Well said Evergreen. Too many people vakadhakwa pfungwa. They can’t think straight. They find comfort in suffering. Shame, shame, shame

  7. you want him to print more bond notes, its pathetic that you are analyzing this from a wrong perspective. Ryt now he is putting efforts to resuscitate the industry, yesterday he commissions $1,5bn 600MW power station.If the industry is resuscitated the cash crisis will be solved.

  8. pane nyaya guyz the suffering is real

  9. # GOD IS IN IT

    Let them wait and see the Ediot while Chamisa is pushing to do kwekwe come July 30 2018

  10. Chamisa For President

    URICHAPORONGA ZVESHUWA INDUSTRY INOUNZA CASH ICHIBVEPI IWO MAGETSI ACHO ARIKUDA KUTOTENGESWA MUNO MUZIMBABWE NEMA BOND FUTI

  11. Cash comes from production, so sustainable cash would come from industry rehabilitation and power from hwange is one such enabler, musaite semahure anongoda kuona cash asingazivi kuti inobva kupi which is not sustainable, if use it up you go begging again, who do you can do that for you, we want sustainable things. Lets not be like uneducated zombies
